Crosswater Yacht Club eyes spring opening for Lake Travis marina

Construction on 247-slip marina to finish in March or April

Construction on the 111-acre Crosswater Yacht Club, one of the newest marinas on Lake Travis, is in full swing as construction on the 247-slip marina is expected to wrap up in March or April, General Manager Roland Adams said.

The marina, located along the south shore of Lake Travis, will have a 125-space paved parking lot with 14 1/2-foot-tall lights, designed to not disturb the residential area nearby. The lot will have a privacy fence with a keypad entry system and will have golf carts available to take boaters from the lot directly to their boat.

"Our docks are wide enough to support a golf cart, making it very convenient to go from your car right to your boat," said Adams, a lifelong Lake Travis resident.

Many of the slips will feature private docks, which gives the marina a "club" feel.

The marina is situated in deep water so as not to be affected by low lake levels, Adams said. The location, which is on a gradual slope, allows the marina to operate in low lake levels without having to reconfigure, he said.

The marina, which will also have a ship store and fuel dock, already has more than 70 spots sold, and Adams does not think it will take too long to sell the remaining slips.

With a hopeful opening date in April or May, Hurst Joint Venture LP—the company created from the merger of MOF Hurst Harbor LP, Crosswater Yacht Club and LP of Austin—is using two dock builders to expedite the process, said Adams, who also manages Hurst Harbor on Lake Travis.

"We want to have our grand opening in April or May, bring in the boaters and show them what a great place this is for a marina," Adams said.
