UNIQUE MARINA ADDS TO COUNTY’S OFFERINGS
June 1, 2002
Delaware’s Sussex County is home to five state parks, several wildlife preserves and a host of public-access beaches. Now, thanks to Bellingham Marine and the Blades Economic Development Company (BEDCO), the county can boast the addition of a new, state-of-the-art marina.
Nanticoke River Marine Park, a round basin just off the river, is located in the town of Blades and is the cornerstone of BEDCO’s development plan. Bellingham designed the poured-pan concrete, Unideck® dock system to accentuate the shape of the basin and provide stable, durable footing. With 89 slips ranging in size from 30′ to 50′, the marina caters to boaters by providing a pump-out facility, fuel station, boat ramp, travel lift and a yacht club in a beautiful, scenic setting.
Safety features include life rings and ladders on all docks, as well as a fire protection system. Sussex County is also host to many entertaining cultural events each year, such as the Rehoboth Beach Autumn Jazz Festival, annual River Fest boat parade, Sussex Arts Council art galleries and the Rehoboth Art League classes for artists of all ages.
Bellingham Marine designs manufactures and installs Unifloat® floating dock systems, Unideck® fresh water dock systems and Unistack® dry storage buildings for marinas and boat service facilities worldwide.
