Like many things in life, Barber Marina began as just a dream: a dream to build a world-class marina on the northern coast of the Gulf of Mexico. In 2004, owner George Barber completed construction of the Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, AL and decided the day had come to make his dream a reality. Construction began in 2004 with the excavation of a 9 acre basin. This basin would eventually become the home of the marina’s concrete floating docks. The marina opened for business in 2008, but major construction of the boatyard and service center continued until completion in 2010.
The result of this mammoth effort brings us to where we are today, a full service marina and boatyard located on Alabama’s northern shore of the Intracoastal Waterway between Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Barber Marina offers all of the amenities that one would expect to find at a world-class marina. These amenities include a 9 acre boatyard, 185 wet slips, 400 inside dry-storage slips, 20 outside dry-storage slips, yacht repair facility, boat and outboard service center, ship store with marine gasoline and diesel, and a new and used boat sales center. The marina boasts a campus of 25+ acres of beautifully maintained landscaping, nestled within a larger 3,000 acre tract of company-owned land.
In addition to our world-class facility, the staff of Barber Marina prides themselves in providing premier service. Regardless of your reason for visiting, all guests and customers receive the same high quality service from our very friendly and highly experienced staff.
But don’t take our word for it, come on out and see for yourself!
