Figuerado adds Grider Hill Marina to group of marinas
In Jan. 22 Issue

Grider Hill Marina recently announced a change in ownership when Jim Figuerado purchased Clinton County's only commercial marina on Lake Cumberland. Figuerado has over 18 years marina management experience and owns five other successful marinas in the neighboring state of Tennessee.

"Grider Hill Marina is a beautiful place, and it's our goal to exceed our customers' expectations both when they are here and when they are planning to be here. I'm a boat guy so I treat people the way I want to be treated when I'm out enjoying the lake," says Figuerado.

To that end Figuerado has put a new mission statement in place: Our goal is to treat every visitor to our marina as an honored guest in our home everyday, every time, without fail, no exceptions.

He is also making improvements to the property as he and the staff prepare for the upcoming boating season. The team is currently in the finishing stages of replacing the roofs on all floating moorage structures and adding new flotation under some of the docks. The marina's store is being renovated as well.

"The new season starts in just a few months, and with the economy the way it is, more and more people are taking advantage of vacationing in their own backyard," adds Figuerado. "Whether you're looking for recreational fun, a family vacation, great bass fishing, or a romantic getaway, Grider Hill really has it all. I'm just here to help try and make what's already great even better."

Despite lower lake levels due to the US Army Corp of Engineer's work on Wolf Creek Dam, Grider Hill Marina still boasts an almost 100 foot drop off from the docks providing ideal conditions for everything from private cruisers to rental houseboats as well as guided fishing tours. The miles of shoreline, complete with campgrounds and RV hook-ups, allow visitors to customize their ideal getaway.

Grider Hill Marina opened to the public in the spring of 1951 by Bruce and Gay Sloan, and remained under their ownership for over 50 years. The architecture of the marina's lodge was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright and built using native stone and wood, mined and cut from the surrounding land.
