About Lamb’s Yacht Center

We welcome you to the oldest and largest full service and storage marina in North Florida and South Georgia. Lamb’s had its beginning in 1936 in downtown Jacksonville, and moved to its current location in 1960.

The marina is owned and operated by 2nd and 3rd generation Lambs, as well as a staff with over 300 years of combined experience. We are proud to continue the Lamb tradition and welcome you to the family.

Located on the Ortega River, we are part of the Jacksonville Marina Mile, the largest concentration of recreational boating services in the region. We are 5 miles from downtown Jacksonville and are within walking distance of the services that the traveling boater needs (grocery, restaurants, postal facility, shops, churches, etc). Two miles down the road, historic Avondale offers local shops and wonderful restaurants to give you a taste of old town Jacksonville.

In addition to our 242 wet slips, we offer: covered storage, fueling and pump out stations, as well as being one of four boat companies that recycle, and an outstanding service department that can take care of your every need. We offer a range of services, from routine haul-outs and bottom jobs with our 100 metric ton capability, to mechanical repairs and repowers. We can do everything from touch-ups to complete repaints. Our skilled carpentry department can repair the classic or antique, and completely remodel a custom interior.

On property, we have restrooms, showers, a concierge service, monthly maintenance services, rental bikes, a courtesy car, Wi-Fi, and laundry that we welcome you to use upon your stay here. We are currently working on many projects to improve our facilities, so please excuse any construction.

Lamb's has been part of Jacksonville since 1936

Before the Fuller Warren bridge existed, there were the beginnings of Lamb’s Yacht Center in that very spot back in 1936. 

Bronson Lamb Jr. continued the Lamb’s legacy when he took over the business and moved it to its current location on the Marina Mile. 

It quickly became popular with its covered storage and proximity to Avondale, Riverside, and downtown Jacksonville.

He made it his mission to exceed the expectations of every customer. He improved the marina over the years and became involved in the community to ensure boater’s rights.

His ownership of the marina was succeeded by his son, Bronson Lamb III, who continued his father’s dream, and eventually by Peggy Sue (Lamb) Williams, her husband, and daughters Nadia and Murphy.

Bronson’s legacy lives on at Lamb’s Yacht Center with continued above-and-beyond care of the marina’s customers, and with new memories from his family and the like-family employees who are the heart and soul of why Lamb’s has a reputation for excellence.
