WORK COMPLETED ON NEW LA PAZ RESORT MARINA
May 1, 2005
Beautiful La Paz is the capital of Baja California Sur, Mexico. And now it’s also home of one of the area’s newest resort marinas, Marina Costa Baja, designed and built by world renowned marina constructor Bellingham Marine.
Marina Costa Baja’s new Unifloat concrete floating dock system consists of 240 berths in two basins and a man-made breakwater. The outer basin is designed for vessels from 15 m to 60 m, and the inner basin accommodates craft from 9 m to 15 m.
This turnkey project also included all of the amenities associated with a five-star facility. Each slip has its own electric service, potable water, telephone and TV service and pumpout system. Additionally, the marina features a fuel dock, cruise vessel docking facility and a boat launch ramp.
Some of the design challenges of the construction were the significant corrosion resistance necessary to handle a high-salinity, tropical environment, and pre-drilling for the guide pile system to overcome the rocky soil.
Located on one of the finest, white sand beaches on the southeast coast of the Gulf of California, the resort is situated on 215 hectares of land, with nearly 1.6 km of beach front. The facility includes a 120-room hotel, 20 private villas on the beach, and private apartments and condominiums overlooking the marina.
