JMA Ventures acquires Tahoe’s Homewood High & Dry Marina

HOMEWOOD, Calif. — Last week, JMA Ventures announced the acquisition of Homewood High & Dry Marina by a JMA Ventures investment affiliate and Somera Capital Management.

As part of JMA Ventures’ long-term plan to create a world-class destination on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe, the marina will round out the existing summer and winter offerings of Homewood Mountain Resort and West Shore Café.

Long-time marina owner David Topol will remain responsible for day-to-day management as Marina Director of Operations.

“For almost 40 years, our customers have been the core of Homewood Marina,” said Topol. “We’re excited that this partnership will allow us to continue to enhance the level of service we are able to offer to our customers, as well as to incorporate our business into the remarkable development vision for the soon to be transformed Homewood Mountain Resort.”

Homewood Mountain Resort’s Master Plan is scheduled to break ground in the summer of 2017, eventually bringing the addition of a 5-star hotel, high-end residences and a neighborhood village.

“As Homewood evolves into a four-season destination, partnering with the Marina is a natural fit,” said Kevin Mitchell, general manager of Homewood Mountain Resort. “The integration of the properties will truly embody what Homewood is known for, which is the peak to shore experience, from the top of Ellis Peak to the shore of Lake Tahoe.”

As a result of the partnership, the Marina will offer new services and amenities this summer, including gourmet meals and provisions for boaters produced by the adjacent West Shore Café, improved parking, and online buoy and dry storage rentals, among others.
