MARINA IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA COMPLETES MAJOR RENOVATION
June 19, 2008
Channel Islands Harbor Marina in Oxnard, CA is abuzz with excitement and activity to both boaters and staff as the last of the new slips are opened and boats that were temporarily relocated returned. The original 523 slip facility underwent an extensive renovation to replace the marina’s deteriorating docks and to update utilities.
Scheduled to take up to two years to complete, the renovation was completed in just 15 months. URS-Cash and Associates and Bellingham Marine managed the design and construction of the new facility. “The completed marina looks great and feedback has been overwhelming positive,” said Brian Dunn, president of Vintage Marina Partners, operators of Channel Islands Harbor Marina.
“We had a few challenges along the way but the construction team worked hard to minimize disruptions and to keep the schedule on track.” A phased construction plan was developed to allow sections of the marina to remain in full operation throughout the course of the rebuild project.
The renovated facility boasts 420 Unifloat slips for boats from 24’ to 60’ in length. Additional side tie areas accommodate yachts up to 106’ in length, and space around the outside of the docks is designed for wet storage of dinghies, electric boats, PWC’s and other small craft.
Services on the docks include power, water, telephone, cable, and wireless internet access. New custom entry gates, 80’ ADA compliant gangways, and a security /monitoring system have also been installed. Bathrooms with showers and storage lockers are on-site for tenants and visitors.
Be sure to stop by Channel Islands Harbor Marina and see the new facilities during the Ventura County Boat Show July 10th – 13th. Visit the show’s website at www.ci-boatshow.com/overview.html for further details.
