Construction was completed on The Tarpon Club Marina Dry Storage Facility, located on Isles of Capri in Naples, Fla.

Designed to accommodate up to 145 boats, the largest being 36 feet, the Tarpon Club Marina facility is the newest drystack facility in the Naples area.

A flexible design, utilizing Bellingham Marine's Unistack, allows the holding racks to be adjusted to meet demand. There is also space to store an additional 30 boats outside the building, bringing the total capacity to about 175.

"The building at The Tarpon Club Marina clearly demonstrates that drystacks can be more than a simple warehouse," Bellingham Marine manager of project development Steve Ryder said in a statement.

From large windows and textured walls to a clock tower, this 25,000-square-foot dry storage building fits in with its upscale surroundings and is an example of the advancements in architectural style of modern dry-storage facilities, according to Bellingham. It has also been designed to withstand hurricane force winds.

Washington-based Bellingham Marine is a leading marina construction company that produces Unifloat saltwater systems, Unideck freshwater systems and Unistack dry storage systems for marinas worldwide.
