In November 2003 ROSA LLC which is owned by Salvatore Calabrese purchased the Blue Water Marina. Sal along with his wife Amy and daughter Sofia have deep roots in Margate City and are interested in the stewardship of the Marina, as well as the surrounding environment, maintaining the eco-system through sound environmental policies, while providing people with a safe positive family recreational experience.
The Calabrese Family will continue to provide a safe, positive and fun recreational experience while maintaining the natural beauty of the surrounding area of the water and land through monitoring and improving the Marina.
Since acquiring the Blue Water Marina, the Calabrese Family selected Theresa Riley to manage the daily operations and oversee all maintenance and repairs. Her ability to satisfy or exceed customer request has been to be the Marina’s most valuable asset. If you have any comments or requests, please contact her directly at [email protected].
Annual Boaters Appreciation Day

Improvements and Renovations
In an effort to ensure a successfully functioning marina, the Calabrese Family contacted each boater to personally introduce themselves and discuss any concerns the boaters had.
They believed to achieve their goals of a more enjoyable and safer Marina; every comment was evaluated and implemented, wherever practical. The improvements included security lighting, ladders and braces, entrance door locks, restroom cleanliness, piling caps, general maintenance, trash removal, functioning water and electricity at each slip.
The Calabrese Family knows that continuous improvement and customer satisfaction are the cornerstones to operating an enjoyable and safe Marina while striving to exceed the expectations of boaters everywhere.
