DELTAVILLE, Va. – The Regatta Point Yachting Center has installed a new amenity in Deltaville. Now boaters and tourists can charge their electric cars at two new SemaConnect charging stations installed outside the Regatta Point Clubhouse. The new SemaConnect charging stations are the first EV charging stations in Virginia’s Middle Peninsula.
The two SemaConnect Series 6 charging stations at Regatta Point feature the universal J1772 plug and are compatible with all plug-in electric cars in North America. Designed for the elements, the stations feature a rugged design, interactive LED lights, and smart technology to put Deltaville on the map. 4G connectivity to the SemaConnect Network means that station managers can manage access, customize pricing, and generate usage reports. EV drivers can view live station status online, manage payment methods, and get directions to Regatta Point.
Located an hour north of Newport News, on the tip of Middlesex County, Deltaville is known for its beautiful views and water activities. The Regatta Point Yachting Center is a family-owned yachting center that has welcomed boaters and wedding parties every year since its establishment in 2004. Purchased by Don Pringle in 2019, Regatta Point offers slip rentals, yacht brokerage services, and spaces for weddings and events. The new EV charging stations are just two of Regatta Point’s off-season property upgrades that will serve boaters this spring.
“Last year, we started to see more slip holders and boaters visiting the yachting center with their Teslas,” said Jimmy Mackey, general manager at Regatta Point Yachting Center. “Some of our slip holders drive from as far as New Jersey, so we’re excited to welcome them back with our new SemaConnect stations. We look forward to serving the Deltaville community and invite new visitors to recharge body and soul with us at the Regatta Point Yachting Center.”
“The Regatta Point Yachting Center is leading a new trend for recreational facilities, resorts, and event spaces in Virginia,” said Joseph Inglisa, vice president of business development at SemaConnect. “With its new SemaConnect stations, Regatta Point provides an essential amenity for EV drivers visiting the Chesapeake Bay. We’re honored to support the Regatta Point team and EV drivers in Virginia.”
The two SemaConnect charging stations at Regatta Point Yachting Center are open to the public and ready to charge. To start charging, drivers can download the SemaConnect mobile app, use a SemaConnect Pass, visit the online portal at network.semaconnect.com, dial 1-800-663-5633, or Pay with PlugShare. Charging fees include $1.75 per plug-in hour and $0.20 per kilowatt hour. More information on pricing, location, and station status can be found on the SemaConnect app.
