What is a boat slip?
Like condominiums, boat slips are individual slips that can be sold and transferred by deed to individual boat owners and investors. Sometimes,

include things like income centers, such as service center, marina store, fuel dock, office/retail space, etc., the marina parking, recreational
amenities, club house, restaurant, gym, pool, etc.
