Best Of 2018



The 2018 Coastal Virginia Best of Readers Choice contest has ended. Stay tuned for Winners in an upcoming issue of Coastal Virginia Magazine.

How the Process Works:

  • Within each category, you'll see a drop down menu of options to vote for; select your choices.
  • Vote for your favorites by clicking the vote button beside your choice.
  • A Few Guidelines:
    • One ballot per person (e-mail address), per day please.
    • Nominees MUST be in the CORRECT Category in order to be counted.
    • Vote for as many or as few categories as you would like, as our new ballot allows you to navigate through different pages seamslessly.
    • You MUST submit your name and e-mail address with entry to validate your ballot.
    • Once the initial voting period ends on January 31, 2018  results are added up and double-checked for fraudulent voting or obvious abuse (those votes are then removed).
    • The finalist round will consist of business receiving top level votes received in their respective categories. These businesses will move into the finalist round for additional voting that runs from February 3 through  March 31, 2018.   Our contest winners will be those receiving the most votes overall for the entire duration of the contest.


Voting for the "Best Of" Coastal Virginia is a great way to support the places you frequent and the community individuals you love. In order to find out who is the best, we completely rely on you—our readers. So, vote away and spread the word!

Dare Marina and Yacht Sales is one of the Chesapeake Bay's best kept secrets. We are located on the tranquil shores of Chisman's Creek in York County, Virginia. The area is a Boaters Paradise, with quick access to the Chesapeake Bay, a short run (less than 25 miles) to Cape Henry and the Atlantic Ocean, and easy access to the York River, Hampton Roads, and some of the best fishing grounds in the state.

Dare Marina is a sub-chapter S corporation, incorporated in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The property has been operated as a marina for over 30 years, and has been doing business under the name of Dare Marina and Yacht Sales for approximately 10 years. Our facilities include a large covered dry-storage building, two multi-tier outside storage racks, over 500 feet of pier with finger piers for perpendicular mooring, and numerous racks for storage and maintenance. All told, we can accommodate storage of over 300 boats in our facility. A second large building houses our ship's store, offices, and engine service facilities.
