SUNSET MARINA GENERAL MANAGER
My name is Denise Browning, I am the General Manager here at Sunset Marina. Most of my 22-year career has been spent in the Hospitality Industry, primary in hotel operations. I became passionate about boating when my family and I moved to a lake community in 2004. In 2013, my husband and I decided to embark on the American Cruiser’s Great Loop with our twins. We completed about 2,500 miles when we needed to return home. During our time in and out of marinas, I found a similarity between marinas and hotels. I started dreaming of a career in marina management. When the position opened up at Sunset Marina, I knew it was something I needed to apply for. Since coming on board, I have learned so much from our F3 Marina management team and so excited to complement their knowledge with my passion for boating and customer service.
Sunset Marina is owned by the City of Rock Island and professionally managed by F3 Marina. Located in Sunset Park at 31st Avenue and the Mississippi River in Rock Island, Illinois, our beautiful harbor is surrounded by 250 acres of woods and a tranquil, secluded park with jogging paths, playgrounds, and picnic areas. The spacious marina boasts 395 slips for seasonal, monthly, and overnight docking; slips range from 16 feet to 60 feet in length.
