Lake Conroe Marina and Boat Storage

Family Business

Four generations and counting

The Palms Marina and Boat Storage on Lake Conroe, located at the end of FM 830, is the finest and most complete of the Lake Conroe Marina and boat storage facilities. Owned and operated by the owners of E-Z Boat Storage and Valet Launch, the marina has been transformed into a gated Super Marina for boaters and fishermen everywhere. 
 
Over 150 State of the Art, “full service” covered boat slips float in a breakwater protected deep water harbor. Dry boat storage units with concrete drives supplement the marina’s floating docks. Readily available Valets and tractors insure immediate placement of boats in the water for our 580+ dry storage tenants. 
 
Our Ship’s Store and fuel dock, featuring 3 grades of Valvtect Marine gasoline and diesel, now services boaters on Lake Conroe with low prices. Security gated executive restrooms, laundry & showers were built adjacent to the floating marina with a covered breezeway and deck.

Current Operations

Father Dana, brothers, Rich, Bart, Gary and Ben Richardson have operated businesses on Lake Conroe since the Lake was developed in 1973. Being avid boaters, they bring a determination to offer their customers the same quality service they expect themselves. E-Z Boat Storage and Valet Launch on the SE Corner of the FM 1097 Bridge was developed and is operated by the Richardson Family. 
 
Gary and Ben saw the opportunity to renovate the demographically located marina basin into a modern and efficient service provider for all types of pleasure boaters on Lake Conroe. The Richardson’s also operate the waterfront RV park, Sunset Shores, adjacent to E-Z Boat. And up the road, they offer a boating showroom for Texas Boat Sales, their recently sold boat sales, brokerage and service business.

Other Lake Conroe Ventures

Beginning in the early 70’s, the family developed properties on the northeast quadrant of the lake. In addition, they built over a hundred homes in many Lake Conroe neighborhoods. The map below shows the influence the Richardson’s have had on the area.
