NEW MARINA IN KEY WEST OFFERS WIDE RANGE OF AMENITIES
February 3, 2014
Stock Island developer, Matthew Strunk, has opened a new marina in Key West, Florida – Stock Island Marina Village. The new moorage facility built by worldwide marina builder, Bellingham Marine was designed by Strunk and his team to appeal to a wide spectrum of boaters from Megayacht owners to shrimp boat captains.
Located in Safe Harbor, Stock Island Marina Village is accessed from the Atlantic through an entrance channel dredged to a depth of 25 ft. to 35 ft. The marina basin is divided by two massive land piers and separated by 300 ft. of water.
Bellingham Marine completed the first phase of construction in November. 128 slips were installed in the marina’s north basin for boats ranging from 40 feet to 70 feet. Two new side-tie docks were also put in to provide Superyacht moorage for vessels up to 250 ft. The second basin houses the marina’s older live-aboard moorage with 80 slips.
Strunk’s vision for the property is to transform the once industrial site into a world class marina that attracts visitors from around the world and reflects an appreciation for the history of the area and the eclectic lifestyle Key West is famous for.
Stock Island Marina Village offers a wide range of amenities on the docks, including in-slip pump outs for all slips and 480A, 3-phase electrical service for power-hungry super yachts. High-speed fueling is available on the 430-foot fuel dock, the largest in South Florida. Upland amenities include a ship’s store with a captain’s lounge above and an outdoor bar and grill, dog parks, and an organic community garden for live-aboards who want to grow fresh fruits and vegetables.
Just beyond the noise and crowds of Duval Street in Key West, Stock Island Marina Village will be a heaven for many boat owners and captains.
As the world’s leading marina design-build construction company, Bellingham Marine produces Unifloat® concrete floating dock systems as well as timber and metal frame systems. The company also produces Unistack® dry stack systems for marinas worldwide.
