NEW DRY STORAGE FACILITY OPENS ON ISLES OF CAPRI IN NAPLES, FLORIDA
July 27, 2009
Construction has been completed on the architecturally distinctive Tarpon Club Marina Dry Storage Facility, located on Isles of Capri in Naples, Florida.
Designed to accommodate up to 145 boats, the largest being 36 feet in length, The Tarpon Club Marina Dry Storage is the newest drystack facility in the Naples area.
A flexible design, utilizing Bellingham Marine’s Unistack, allows the holding racks to be adjusted to meet demand. There is also space to store an additional 30 boats outside the building bringing the total capacity to approximately 175.
“The building at The Tarpon Club Marina clearly demonstrates that drystacks can be more than a simple warehouse,” remarked Bellingham Marine’s Manager of Project Development, Steve Ryder. From large windows and textured walls to a clock tower, this 25,000-square-foot dry storage building fits in well with its upscale surroundings and is a great example of the advancements in architectural style of modern dry storage facilities.
Not only is the building beautifully constructed, but it has also been designed to withstand hurricane force winds. Both the building and its doors were designed to meet Florida’s strict Building Code requirements.
The Tarpon Club Marina reports great leasing activity for the facility. About 60% of the Marina’s racks have been leased since its opening in February of this year. “The feedback we’ve received from boaters has been overwhelmingly positive, especially in today’s economic climate,” said Mike Morrison, Dock Operations Supervisor at The Tarpon Club Marina, when asked about the Marina’s new dry storage building.
Centrally located, The Tarpon Club Marina is in close proximity to casual and fine dining restaurants. The Marina features wet and dry slips – both open to the public with fueling facilities, bait, wash racks, cleaning station, keypad entry system, complimentary ice, and quality service.
