Marina Slips for Tenants and Transients
Legasea Marine is located on 7 acres on Chisman Creek in Yorktown, Virginia. Situated between the James and York Rivers on the Chesapeake Bay, Legasea is a safe haven for boaters with a protected location, but is only minutes away from the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean.
The marina’s wet slips are primarily all on floating docks with 30 and 50 amp shorepower service. Currently there are six boat lifts in place, with another dozen planned for the near future.
Legasea’s bayside facility and world-class service are available for locals and transients alike.

ValvTect Gasoline (89)
The fuel dock at Legasea Marine proudly sells ValvTect diesel fuel and 89 octane ValvTect gasoline at competitive prices.
Legasea Marine is pleased to be able to offer an enhanced marine gasoline to our customers. Many boaters have experienced problems resulting from use of ethanol fuels in a marine environment. ValvTect fuels are formulated to minimize the issues that ethanol can cause. At last, a solution – and it starts at the pump! Some thoughts and explanations are addressed below:
Certified Fuel Storage
As a certified ValvTect dealer, Legasea Marine’s fuel storage facility is inspected twice each year for moisture, algae, and other contaminants. If contaminants are found in a certified dealer’s storage facility, the dealer would be required to rectify the issue in order to continue selling ValvTect products.
Ethanol Blended Gasoline
Problems specific to marine use of ethanol blended gasoline are linked to ethanol’s absorption of excess moisture around water and the length of time between fill-ups. This can cause fuel to degrade in less than a month, and in rare cases for ethanol to separate from the gasoline if a large amount of water enters the fuel tank. Ethanol blended gasoline can also develop excessive deposits in hotter-burning marine engines. This can decrease fuel economy, reduce power output and potentially cause power-head failure. To help prevent these potential problems, ValvTect Marine Gasoline contains marine-grade fuel additives not found in automotive gasoline. They stabilize the fuel to keep it fresh for up to a year and to help prevent octane loss. A moisture dispersant also assists in preventing phase separation.
ValvTect Reduces Fuel Consumption and Improves Performance
At current fuel prices, getting the most mileage out of a tank of gasoline is critically important to boaters. Using marine-grade gasoline or diesel that is formulated to reduce carbon deposits can significantly reduce fuel consumption and save a lot of money. Carbon deposits, commonly called “gunk,” build up in engines during the combustion process. As deposits build in fuel injectors, carburetors, intake valves and combustion chambers, they reduce the engine’s fuel efficiency, increasing fuel consumption. Because marine engines can use up to 10 times more fuel per hour than a car or truck engine, the amount of detergents in automotive grade gasoline and diesel typically are not sufficient to effectively cleanup deposits. ValvTect Marine gasoline and ValvTect Marine Diesel Fuel are specially-formulated to prevent and cleanup power-robbing deposits in marine engines. Compared to automotive-grade gasoline and diesel fuel, ValvTect Marine Fuels contain higher levels of detergents and other important additives required for marine engine operation.
Enhanced Fuel is Economical, Environmentally-Friendly, and Easy on Engines
ValvTect Marine Gasoline is formulated to burn cleaner, eliminate power-robbing deposits that increase pollutants, and reduce fuel consumption, helping to keep our air and waterways clean.
Legasea is also an official Virginia Saltwater Fishing Tournament weigh station, meaning you can weigh your catch and receive a citation if it meets the current requirements.
