Bellingham finishes new Florda marina

Bellingham Marine recently completed the new Naples (Fla.) Bay Resort, which boats its own full service yacht club and 97-slip, full service marina.

The state-of-the-art marina offers a fuel dock, in-slip sewage pumpout services, and 50 amp, 110/220 power supply. It accommodates private boats as well as charter boat services for sightseeing and fishing.

“Construction of the new marina presented unique challenges for our crew,” said Neil Davis, construction manager for Bellingham Marine. “Every square inch of the property, including the marina area, was maximized and we were on a fast track timeline.”

Construction of the property began in late October 2007 after numerous delays related to local permits and work space on site. At times, more than 20 different contractors with more than 200 workers were on the property, the company reports.

A leading marina design/build construction company, Bellingham Marine produces Unifloat saltwater systems, Unideck freshwater systems and Unistack dry-storage systems for marinas worldwide.
