Port City Marina | Downtown Wilmington


Port City Marina (PCM) officially opened for business in mid-2015 and offers full-time professional staff.  PCM is a protected, deep water, marina with state-of-the-art floating concrete wet slips. The marina covers 10 acres of water featuring 84 permanent slips and 1,500 linear feet of additional dockage for transient and permanent guests. Slips range in size from 40 to 100 feet, but can accommodate boats up to 250 feet, with a controlled depth of 10-feet within the basin, and deeper draft slips along the Cape Fear River.

The Downtown Riverwalk goes through the property – allowing guests to follow the Riverwalk along the river to restaurants, entertainment, and shopping. PCM also offers a fuel depot, parking, and concrete event pier with a bandshell. Some of the concerts hosted by PCM have been Willie Nelson, KC &The Sunshine Band, Dwight Yoakam, the Cheney Brothers Food Show, and the annual Wilmington Boat Show. In addition, many private functions, weddings, corporate parties and charity fundraisers select PCM as their preferred venue.

The marina continues to garner attention as the area around it continues to grow and develop.  The marina, the location, and our world-class customer service staff continue to receive positive reviews on Active Captain, Google, and Facebook.

Future Growth & Return on Investment

Our permit allows the addition of more slips in the future, up to 204 total. Currently, slips are only available for lease. The General Partner will determine, based on market conditions, to either commence slip sales, or maintain leasing program until initial investment period is complete. This determination will be made with priority placed on preservation of capital and maximizing profit to the Limited Partnership. Return of investment capital shall be achieved through sales of marina slips, or by selling the entire marina asset once income stabilization and EB-5 program requirements have been met.
