Spanish Main Condos for Sale – Longboat Key, Sarasota, Florida 34228

Spanish Main

Spanish Main is a 28-acre property developed during the mid-1960s as a 55+ community consisting of 212 residences. Touted as one of the first condominium projects in the Sarasota area, the development of this community revolved around the passion for sailing, successfully establishing itself as one of the boating communities offering highly desirable options on Longboat Key condos for sale.

In order to assert this distinct character, the property was named after Spain’s 16th century New World Empire covering the American continent’s mainland enclosed by the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea. History books call this territory as the Spanish Main, a name which certainly struck a resonant chord among the developers of this property located at 5700 Gulf of Mexico Drive fronting Sarasota Bay.

Yacht club offerings

Spanish Main

This community was developed as a yacht club with features sure to resonate among buyers of Longboat Key real estate whose lifestyles are entwined with the many delights offered by the sea. Spanish Main’s major feature is a private marina which serves as home port for the community’s yacht club. This facility has deepwater boat slips directly on Sarasota Bay which are available at reasonably priced annual fee and can accommodate up to a forty-footer vessel.

Additionally, the community has deeded beach access and a large, heated community pool. Spanish Main also flaunts a picturesque landscaping accented by a longish lake with a fountain bordered by many residences. A newly renovated clubhouse and shuffleboard courts adjacent to a spacious marina basin are also among the endearing features of this boating community.

Villa-type condos
