WORK CONTINUES AT ORIGINAL MEGA YACHT MARINA
June 17, 2003
Bellingham Marine is pleased to report that the new North Basin piers at the Bahia Mar Yachting Center are complete. The first three piers, G, H and I, are fully occupied. The next phases of work continue on the Intracoastal docks and the South Basin piers, as the project progresses toward its planned completion date prior to the 2003 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
Located on world famous Fort Lauderdale Beach and the Intracoastal Waterway, the marina was originally built in 1949. Immediately following the 2002 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, removal of the existing fixed docks started, and Bellingham Marine began replacing them with state-of-the-art Unifloat® concrete floating dock systems.
The company’s work consists of manufacture and installation of its Unifloat® systems, including piling, electrical, plumbing, sanitation, fire suppression, telephone and fiber-optic computer wiring. The utilities will provide additional power and water for the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, as well as the day-to-day operation of the marina. Bahia Mar facilities include a Radisson Hotel and Conference Center, boat brokerages and service facilities, a charter fishing fleet, water taxi center, shops and restaurants.
