NEW MEGAYACHT MARINA OPENS IN DOWNTOWN SEATTLE AT WARDS COVE
December 17, 2008
The new megayacht marina at Wards Cove on Lake Union is now open. The marina is located in the heart of downtown Seattle, Washington and is part of the new Wards Cove on Lake Union waterfront development.
The freshwater marina features Bellingham Marine’s Unifloat system designed to cater to megayachts. The marina has eleven slips 95 to 100 feet in length with spectacular views of Downtown Seattle. Each slip is equipped with 200 amps of dedicated power, telephone, internet and TV services, sewage pumpouts, freshwater systems, and wash-water treatment posts with a phosphate cartridge and sediment filter to prevent spotting.
“Finding moorage for yachts over 75 feet within Seattle’s city limits is extremely challenging,” said Bill Weisfield, CEO of Wards Cove Packing Company. The new marina gives megayacht owners in the Pacific Northwest the option to moor at a world class facility in Downtown Seattle. 9 of the 11 slips have already been leased and interest in the remaining slips is strong, said Weisfield.
Wards Cove on Lake Union is a new waterfront community comprised of twelve floating home sites, a megayacht marina, and 14,500 square feet of office space. Floating home sites feature extra wide Unifloat docks and full utilities including power, sewer, water and gas. Upland construction is expected to begin in the spring of 2009.
The waterfront property on Lake Union served as a support facility for the Alaska salmon operations of Wards Cove Packing Company. In 2002, the Company exited the salmon industry freeing up the property for new development.
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.
