Marina Profile

December 2013 Marina Katie Burke

We asked our Facebook fans to tell us what marinas we should write about in 2014 and we got a huge response. Pam Roystown told us "Portman is the place where the most wonderful people (family) are." With a statement like that, we knew we had to look into Portman Marina.

Located on beautiful Lake Hartwell, Portman Marina is the largest inland marina in South Carolina. It's only 90 minutes from Atlanta, 30 minutes from Greenville, S.C., and less than 15 minutes from Anderson, Clemson, and Lavonia. Additionally, the marina features two of the area's premiere restaurants. The Galley Restaurant, which offers waterfront dining with a selection of fresh seafood, steaks and prime rib and Nami, an authentic Japanese restaurant, which offers a full sushi menu.

It is a full service marina, with over 500 wet and dry storage spaces. 

Some amenities include:


Covered and uncovered wet slips up to 50' in length

Fully enclosed dry storage 10' and 12' wide

Courtesy dock

A full-service gas dock with fuel, oil, and a pump out station

Large launch ramp with good parking

Water and electricity hook-ups

Cable TV and phone service available
