EMERALD ISLE, NC (WWAY) — A Crystal Coast destination is on the market.
The Bogue Inlet Fishing Pier is for sale for $18 million, and owner Mike Stanley said it has been in his family for almost 50 years.
He said taking over the Emerald Isle pier was the best thing he ever did.
“It was the best decision ever made in my life – it really was,” he explained. “I was excited because I knew this is what I wanted to do.”
Stanley said his parents took over the pier when he was a kid.
“Fifty years of meeting a lot of people, knowing a lot of people,” he said. “A lot of good memories, and I’ll never forget anyone.”
Loyal customers of several years have said they will never forget him, and Kirsilia Schleicher, who was worked at the pier’s shop for years, said it is worth every penny.
