SOUTH FLORIDA HOTEL BOASTS FULL SERVICE YACHT CLUB
December 10, 2008
New life has been breathed into a Naples, Florida property. Where once stood a rundown marina now stands a luxurious nine acre resort with private condominiums, a four star hotel, 33,000 square feet of retail space and a 97 slip full service marina. Antaramian Development Group awarded Bellingham Marine the contract to design and build the resort’s world class marina.
The completed Naples Bay Resort boasts the only hotel in South Florida with its own full service Yacht Club and marina. The state-of-the-art marina offers a fuel dock, in slip sewage pumpout services, and 50amp, 110/220 power supply. The marina accommodates private boats as well as charter boat services for sightseeing and fishing.
“Construction of the new marina presented unique challenges for our crew,” said Neil Davis, Construction manager for Bellingham Marine. “Every square inch of the property including the marina area was maximized and we were on a fast track timeline.”
The layout of the marina was designed to match the flow of the angled basin to optimize space and allow for adequate backing and clear water widths. Uniquely shaped dock modules were designed, fabricated and installed by Bellingham Marine.
Construction of the property began in late October 2007 after numerous delays related to local permits and work space on site. It was reported that at times, more than 20 different contractors with over 200 workers were on the property. Parking, material storage and just walking around were an adventure for the work crews.
The completed resort features architecture reminiscent of traditional Italian /Mediterranean design. Bold colors and careful attention to detail set the stage for this world class development and create a warm and luxurious ambience.
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.
