FISHING HEAVEN IS HOME TO A WORLD CLASS MARINA
In the Bahamas, less than 50 miles from Miami, anglers can find some of the best game fishing in the world. They can also enjoy the laid back atmosphere and newly developed docks and amenities at Bimini Sands Marina. The marina center on South Bimini Island meets the needs of the facility’s condo residents and scores of transient boaters and fishermen who visit each year.
Single source marina constructor Bellingham Marine was contracted to design and supply its Unifloat concrete docks. Owner Frank Cooney explained, “I chose the Bellingham product for several reasons. First is ease of installation. The docks are delivered almost completely assembled and are virtually maintenance-free. Because we experience a lot of tide fluctuation, floating docks provide a much safer walking surface than fixed docks. And finally, the concrete docks offer a much higher degree of protection against tropical storms and hurricanes.”
The first phase of the project saw installation of fourteen 50′ docks; the second, fourteen 60′ docks; and the final phase will add sixteen 50′ docks. When complete, the marina will be home to 141 Unifloat slips from 50′ to 120′ in length, with 30/50-amp electric supply and potable water. Also in process on the property are 216 luxurious condos for permanent residence and rental.
