BELLINGHAM BUILT MARINAS RECOGNIZED FOR EXCELLENCE
May 8, 2008
The Marina at Keppel Bay in Singapore is one of Bellingham Marine’s latest projects and it has just been awarded the Christofle Award for Best New Marina in Asia. Bellingham Marine’s pontoon system was instrumental in the marina winning the accolade. The new marina was also host to Boat Asia 2008.
Bellingham Marine helped design and built the state of the art marina for the Keppel Bay marina using their Unifloat ® and Unifloat ® Wave Attenuator products. The attenuator is a 4 meter wide floating structure that protects the basin from wave action and keeps the waters in the marina calm. Phase one of the two phase project was completed earlier this year accommodating boats up to 61 meters. Upon completion of phase two the marina will boast capacity for 170 boats.
The staff at the Marina at Keppel Bay has taken part in marina training with the courses run on site by the Marina Industries Association of Australia (MIA) as part of the MIA Education Program of which Bellingham Marine Australia is a major sponsor.
Another Bellingham Marine project located to the south of Marina at Keppel Bay holds the Australian Marina of the Year awarded by the Australian Marine Industry Federation (AMIF). Soldiers Point Marina is located in Port Stephens, New South Wales and is a 100 berth marina utilizing Bellingham’s Unifloat® System. Each individual berth has services provided with Marine Technologies Pedestals, along with Foxtel, wireless internet and filtered water for the best drinking and cleanest boats.
Bellingham MD John Spragg said “it is a great achievement to have built both marinas taking out these prestigious awards in Australia and Asia, the dedication of our staff and the versatility of the Unifloat® System has shown again the “World Ties Up to Bellingham.”
As the world’s leading marina design/build construction company, Bellingham Marine produces Unifloat saltwater systems, Unideck freshwater systems and Unistack dry storage systems for marinas worldwide.
