Blue Water Partners with National Land Lease Capital, Expands into Texas

Blue Water, a real estate investment and outdoor hospitality management company, based in Ocean City (Maryland), announced its partnership with Virginia-based National Land Lease Capital (NLLC) as a new management client for Tropic Island Resort and Island RV Resort.

According to a release, these amount to a portfolio of almost 400 sites recently purchased by NLLC’s affiliated fund management business. This partnership both solidifies the recent acquisition of the Port Aransas (Texas) properties and marks the two companies’ expansions into Texas.

NLLC, is an ownership group and real estate investment company led by Yogi H. Singh, Stewart M. Garland, and Pushkal Basavaraj. The company specializes in the acquisition, development, management, and repositioning of a diverse spectrum of real estate assets focusing on the outdoor hospitality sector.

NLLC plans to grow its partnership with Blue Water, with the overall goal to assemble a national portfolio of campgrounds and RV resorts with a target value of $200 million within the next two years or less.

The primary reason we moved to partner with Blue Water is because of their market-leading campground management services, as well as their commitment to creating elite assets and delivering exceptional guest experiences,” said Yogi Singh. “That, along with their growing relationship and management contracts with Sun Outdoors, the largest outdoor travel company in the industry, further confirms why our partnership is a natural fit.”

Currently, Blue Water manages over 20 properties all over the country, with the addition of Tropic Island Resort marking its expansion into Texas. Blue Water is poised to continue rapidly expanding its management portfolio nationwide in the coming years with NLLC.

“We are thrilled to announce this new partnership as it accelerates our growth plan as we advance as the leading outdoor hospitality management company in the country,” said Blue Water CEO Todd Burbage. “The expansion in Texas broadens our presence in multiple regions throughout the U.S., and we look forward to many projects to come with the team at NLLC.”

Tropic Island Resort and Island RV Resort both offer luxury lodging options and a resort-style amenity package year-round, which offers amenities such as two pools, a hot tub, dog parks, and golf cart rentals. Accommodations include spacious hotel rooms, beachy cottages with private porches and full kitchens, as well as paved, full hookup RV pads. These premier outdoor hospitality resorts are just a short golf cart ride from the famed Gulf Coast beaches. Guests can also travel to nearby areas for fishing, shopping, birding, live music, and more.
