Joseph Stickland, asking for something close to the marina, as a rental? (your question was posted in rentals). You would have to provided additional information to obtain any substantive answers. Like annual, seasonal, move in when, rent per month etc.
You could check with the yacht brokers and see if there are any boats in the marina seeking a tenant. It would be rare but possible. You could also consider purchasing / renting a dock and live on the boat. Check out Longboat Key Moorings.
The snowbird season has begun and finding a rental in this area will be challenging. Many of the smaller units are contracted by the arts community for their actors, singers and performers during the season. These are contracted during the summer months.
The remaining units around the marina will carry short term season rental rates. Some many be age restricted. If living by a marina is your requirement, then there are other marinas north and south of downtown Sarasota that may offer housing at this late date.
