Bellingham Marine completes marina renovation in California

The Harbor at Marina Bay, previously known as Bay Club Marina in Marina del Rey, Calif., reopened its marina in May after an extensive renovation.

The existing marina was removed and replaced with a modern, low-maintenance concrete dock system with upgraded utilities and the latest in dockside amenities.

Owned and operated by Avalon Bay, the new marina includes a total of 207 single berth slips and 11 end ties for boats from 22 to 90 feet on the end ties.

Bellingham Marine provided a turnkey package for this project, including removal of the existing 30-year-old dock system and the construction of a new marina. Bellingham also provided permitting support and performed the design and manufacture of the dock system.

Marina Bay’s new floating docks feature a colored concrete finish with an ashlar’s stamped pattern. Other upgrades include contemporary designed gangways with accent lighting, in-slip sewer pumpouts and rounded finger corners. The Harbor at Marina Bay also offers a newly installed paver promenade, boater restrooms with showers, boater parking and wireless Internet service.

“When the owners of Marina Bay approached us about this project they were looking for the latest in floating-dock technology; they wanted a dock system that was low-maintenance and a marina that was set apart from others in the harbor in style and function,” Bellingham Marine Southwest project development manager Eric Noegel said in a statement.
