Boating Lifestyle

Special Interest – Boating

The Cape Fear Region has been called a “boater’s paradise” – and for good reason!  The opportunities for a boating enthusiast to get out on the water are seemingly endless!

There are a multitude of public access sites, as well as storage facilities, for boaters who cannot keep their boats on their property.  For the boaters who’d prefer to keep their hobby close to home, there are well over 100 communities in Southeast North Carolina that cater to the boating lifestyle.

The following information will give you a good idea of the local boat accesses, storage facilities and other information, as well as an assortment of boating communities and amenities offered.  It is important to note that not all homes in the communities listed have all amenities available to them, nor are all homes with slips, lifts, etc. located in these neighborhoods.  For more information on homes suited for the boating lifestyle, call Just For Buyers Realty at 910-202-4813.
