FORT LAUDERDALE MARINA EXPANDS MEGA-YACHT CAPACITY
April 30, 2007
Prized for its desirable location, just north of Port Everglades Inlet, the Lauderdale Marina owned by The Shipyard LLC in Fort Lauderdale, Florida provides boaters with direct access to the Atlantic Ocean and all major waterways in the area including the Intracoastal and the historic New River. Bellingham Marine was hired as a design-build contractor to provide the marina with six new, state-of-the-art, floating concrete slips to accommodate boats up to 88’ long and 23.5’ wide.
Bellingham Marine supplied 2, 028 square feet of Unifloat docks with electrical provisions designed to supply each of the new slips with 200 amps of power. Bellingham Marine’s internal utility design enables the Unifloat to meet a wide range of code, environmental, and accessibility requirements as well as handle the mega yacht’s ever increasing demands for more utility services.
Additional amenities at Lauderdale Marina include slip side pumpout stations, water, telephone, and cable services. The owner’s, The Shipyard LLC, are very pleased according to their president Ted Drum with the addition of the new mega yacht slips and boasts about Bellingham Marine’s services. “Bellingham Marine did an outstanding job and we’ll proudly show off our new docks.” The marina has approximately 80 slips with dockage available for boats from 30’ to 150’.
Established in 1948, Lauderdale Marina is one of the region’s oldest family owned and operated marinas and is considered by many to be among the top boating facilities in Florida. The marina is a one-stop shop for individuals looking to buy, rent, repair, or fuel up a boat. With a 350’ fuel dock and 11 fuel pumps, it’s the states longest. Also on site is the renowned 15th Street Fisheries restaurant.
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.
