The marina, which celebrated its reopening Aug. 1, now features accommodations for boats from 20 to 60 feet.

The facility, which was built in 1964, was completely rebuilt, from the parking lot to the seawall railing system, upgrading all utilities, including electrical services, water supply lines, and the fire suppression system. The renovation also included demolition of existing floating dock structures, dredging, seawall repairs and a construction of a new dock system.

"We are very pleased with the work that has been done at Balboa Marina, and our tenants are thrilled about all the upgrades," said Greg Sinks, manager of the marina, in a statement.
