on Lake Sinclair since 1961
Haslam's Marina, Inc.

A beautiful sunset


Al Haslam purchased the marina in August of 1961 after clearing the land, building the docks, overseeing construction of the buildings and serving as resident operator for several years. The lake was young and remote and there were only a few rustic weekend cabins. Most customers were daytime visitors and put in using the marina ramp or hoist. They spent their time fishing, skiing and cruising before taking out at the end of the day. Boating was a fairly new family recreation...




Fast forward to today: Al has been greeting and serving marina customers for over 48 years! 


Many families have since established permanent homes to make this a thriving, exciting community and a desirable vacation destination. Al has seen several generations learn to love the natural beauty of Lake Sinclair and enjoy the fun and relaxation that outdoor recreation offers to all ages...
