BALLENTINE, SC – April 26, 2013 – For seven years the Lake Murray Boat Club has helped countless families and individuals enjoy the beautiful waters of Lake Murray. A recreational boating company, the Lake Murray Boat Club offers its members unlimited use of a variety of boats as an alternative to boat ownership. During those seven years, LMBC serviced its clients from a temporary office and from the docks at Lake Murray Marina.
Sunday, April 21, the Lake Murray Boat Club held an open house to celebrate its modern new office located at the recently completed Marina Center. The Marina Center is part of the new Marina Bay, a waterfront, lifestyle community featuring luxury apartments, a convenience store and Liberty on the Lake restaurant. Thanks to near perfect spring weather, over 100 members and guests were able to enjoy boat rides, kayak and standup paddling, and watch wake surfing demonstrations on the lake. New club boats slated to join the LMBC fleet were on display for the guests to preview.
Sunday’s festivities also marked LMBC’s seven year anniversary. Jon Dukes, owner of the Lake Murray Boat Club, was excited when asked how he felt about leaving his old, familiar office and moving to his new office situated between the ship store and Liberty on the Lake. Dukes stated that the Marina Center is a definite improvement and club members will benefit from the new modern facilities which include a heated, resort-style pool.
Residents of Marina Bay and their guests have shown a growing interest in LMBC. The staff is adjusting to the large number of inquiries from residents curious about the company. “We’re excited about our new neighbors, and we are anticipating a higher demand for our products and services,” said Dukes.
