Cushman & Wakefield (NYSE: CWK) announced that the real estate services firm served as the exclusive advisor to Epum Holdings in the procurement of $50 million in programmatic joint venture equity for the Epum Marina Partners Fund, a platform targeting marina acquisition and development opportunities across the Northeast, Great Lakes and the Mid-Atlantic.
A Cushman & Wakefield Capital Markets team of Steve Michels, Jared Kelso, Dan O’Brien and Lauren Greenberg represented Epum Holdings.
“The marina industry presents significant investment opportunities that can drive high returns,” said Michels. “Given the attractive market dynamics and robust acquisition pipeline Epum has procured, we were able to attract significant institutional equity interest in what has historically been a niche real estate asset class.”
The sponsor’s expansion, targeting value-add marina properties across the Northeast, Great Lakes and the Mid-Atlantic, is fueled by a joint venture partnership with an institutional private investment management firm.
“After reviewing REIT-eligible product types that exist outside of traditional real estate asset classes, we identified the marina business as an opportunistic space in 2020,” said Spencer Stieff, a Partner at Epum Holdings. “Epum will deploy this capital to target marinas with more than 100 slips in high-rate markets with legacy boating cultures and EBITDA optimization opportunities.”
