About Us


Woods Surfside Marina is Logan Martin's marine leader and the largest boat dealer on the lake. The marina has been in the same location since 1968. Jerry and Diana Woods along with their daughter Eva and son in law Mark have operated the marina since 2006. There is a great full time staff that has been on-board since Jerry and Diana took ownership. 

At Woods Surfside Marina, we want to welcome you and your family to enjoy a relaxing and worry free boating experience. The marina sits on 14 acres with over 300 dry storage stalls, and 3 piers of wet slips. We offer full service gas on the water, with no ethanol, and have a valet boat launch service to make your trip to the lake easier. Shop at our store for a large selection of water toys and refreshments. 

We carry the full line of Bennington Pontoons, the number one brand pontoon in America, and Xpress Aluminum Fishing boats. We also have a large selection of pre-owned boats onsite as well. Our commitment to our customers has earned us many awards. We are the number 1 Bennington dealer in the state of Alabama, and 8th nationally. We were awarded the StarCraft CSI award for 6 consecutive years, and in 2012 we were honored as a Mercury CSI award winning marina, an honor that was only given to 97 locations across the country. In 2018 the Marina was awarded the Yamaha Best in Class award and the Xpress Growth dealer of the year.

Customer Service is what Jerry's corporate career was founded on, and the same goes for the marina. The slogan above our door is "Enter as Strangers, Leave as Friends," and we truly mean it. Jerry's legacy lives on at the Marina with our focus always being on the customer and making it just Another Day in Paradise. Whether you are buying your first boat, upgrading, or just need a place to store and enjoy your boat, we want to make your experience enjoyable and relaxing. 

Our mechanics are certified in Mercury, Mercruiser, and Yamaha motors. We have a 3 bay service department with a fully stocked parts department. We can handle all your service needs, from a 20 hour service to a full rebuild of your motor.
