This Florida Couple Plans to Drop Anchor at Their Back Door

Posted on: May 21, 2024

From boating and beach days on Sanibel Island to offshore fishing in the Gulf of Mexico waters, Southwest Florida is a wonderland for waterfront excursions. However, finding a convenient place to dock in Fort Myers at the end of the day can be challenging. Marina fees, driving distances, and other expenses can add up quickly for boaters. Fortunately, there’s a new option on the horizon for those seeking the ultimate boating convenience.

Triton 81º Residences & Yacht Club, a new residential enclave in Fort Myers, offers residents the unique opportunity to live on the water’s edge with a boat dock in their backyard. These 78 private boat slips accommodating vessels up to 70 feet in length will only be available for sale to Triton 81º homeowners. Early buyers secure not only their condominiums’ preferred views and floorplans but also a convenient boat slip right outside their homes. Discover why buyers are embracing the opportunity to “Tiki On” to this new waterfront destination.

Boat on Your Schedule

Having a boat slip next to home offers a significant time-saving advantage. Residents can head out on the water whenever the mood strikes. This convenience eliminates the hassles of dealing with traffic on the way to a dock or navigating crowded boat ramps on busy days. Furthermore, there’s no need to pre-plan and schedule with a marina to have a boat pulled out of dry storage. The only schedule boaters need to consider is their own, making it much simpler to seize any opportunity to enjoy the water.

Convenience Is Key

Another notable benefit of having a boat slip next to home is the convenience of having provisions close at hand. There’s no need to worry about lugging coolers long distances or making hurried trips to the grocery store or marina market to gather supplies. With the kitchen and pantry just steps away, homeowners at Triton 81º can easily pack the food, drinks, and supplies they desire for their boating adventure. This convenience not only saves time but also ensures that boating trips are well-stocked and enjoyable without the stress of last-minute errands.

Private Boat Slips Provide Peace of Mind

Located on the edge of a peninsula on the Caloosahatchee River, Triton 81º’s location also provides peace of mind to boat owners. The private nature of this location means less traffic both on land and in the water, reducing the risk of vandalism, damage, or theft from those passing by. Security measures will also be implemented on the docks to further enhance peace of mind. This allows owners to leave their essentials with their vessels without worry. Whether near or far from home, boat owners can rest assured their boat is secure in its dockage.

Investing in Equity

One significant benefit of having a private boat slip next to home is the added value it brings. This dock serves as a purchased asset that increases the overall value of the home. Homeowners have the option to sell the boat slip separately, further building value for their condominium. Rather than paying a marina for boat rental or storage, they can build equity into their future.

Perks Beyond Boat Slips

Future residents of Triton 81º will enjoy more than just private boat docks. In addition to private rooftop decks on each condominium, owners will have exclusive access to a Yacht Club. The Yacht Club will boast a state-of-the-art fitness center with cutting-edge equipment. Additionally, a casual grille will offer waterfront dining and provisions for boaters setting out for the day. A private tropical pool area, benefiting from its rare waterfront location, will also feature food and beverage service. The Yacht Club will serve as a hub for a variety of events and activities, providing gathering spaces for family and friends to enjoy this incredible lifestyle.

With annual flexibility, buyers can choose each year whether to participate in the program or enjoy the resort lifestyle year-round.

Ideally located between Naples and Sarasota, Fort Myers allows Triton residents to enjoy the very best of Southwest Florida.

The Gulf of Mexico waters are ideal for world-class fishing or spending the day on the beaches and sandbars that line the coast. The proximity to US Highway 41 and I-75 provides convenient access to even more attractions in Bonita Springs, Naples, and beyond. Triton 81 is also easily accessible from two major airports: Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) and Punta Gorda Airport (PGD).
