UNIQUE STORAGE BUILDINGS CAN ENHANCE MARINAS
March 1, 2000
At the southern tip of Alabama, the beautiful city of Orange Beach touches the serene waters of the Gulf of Mexico. This is also where Sun Harbor Marina offers boaters access to some of the best fishing and cruising destinations on the coast. When Howard and Liz Barton bought the facility, formerly known as Safe Harbor Marina & Storage, they decided its dry storage building needed to blend in with the natural beauty of the surrounding area.
So they chose single-source marina constructor Bellingham Marine to give it a new look. Accommodating 220 boats up to 32′ in length, the new Unistack® facility features unique architectural enhancements that include shutters and bell towers. And, as with all of Bellingham’s projects, the building incorporates structural elements that enable it to withstand the weather extremes common to the area.
The name “Orange Beach” refers to the citrus groves on Terry Cove and Cotton Bayou in Perdido Bay. This location is also home to many Gulf Coast charter fishing fleets, several easily accessed golf courses, beaches, and water activities, making it an ideal vacation destination.
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.
