Bellingham, Bahia Mar win design award

Fort Lauderdale-based Bahia Mar Yachting Center was awarded the 2010 PIANC Marina Excellence Design Jack Nichol Award, Bellingham Marine reports.

The purpose of the Jack Nichol Award is to recognize excellence in the design of modern recreational boating facilities around the world.

"A tremendous amount of effort went into designing the Bahia Mar marina to function successfully as a dual-purpose facility," said Steve Ryder, manager of project development for Bellingham Marine, in a statement. "From a design standpoint, the marina had to operate as a world-class yacht center 11 months out of the year and as the home of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show during October of each year."

The award will be presented to Bellingham Marine and Bahia Mar in May.
