NEW JERSEY MARINA HAS A NEW LOOK
April 1, 2000
Belmar Marina, in Belmar, New Jersey, recently got a beautiful facelift as the first part of a two-phase project. The 125 existing wooden slips were replaced by 147 new concrete Unifloat® docks. The slips, ranging in length from 25′ to 60′, have full services available, and the marina has six or more transient slips.
The Unifloat system was supplied by Bellingham Marine, working with Birdsall Engineering and general contractor Simpson & Brown, Inc. Belmar is home to one of the widest, cleanest, mile-long stretches of beach on New Jersey’s coast. Swimmers and surfers enjoy the striking blue-green waters, as loungers and sightseers relish many seaside activities.
The town’s visitor-friendly atmosphere contributes as much to relaxation as strolling down the ocean-side boardwalk, playing at the beach playgrounds or hiking the nature trail. Belmar also hosts a number of events, such as the New Jersey Seafood Festival, AVP Pro Volleyball tournament, lifeguard tournaments, a firemen’s carnival and a kite festival in September.
