Bellingham Marine designs Australian marina

Bellingham Marine of Bellingham, Wash., led the design and construction of the recently opened Marina West, the newest marina in Port Adelaide, South Australia.

Marina West, which celebrated its grand opening in March, was developed by the Cruising Yacht Club of South Australia as an extension of the club's existing complex in North Haven. Marina West adds 73 slips to the region and offers the state's biggest berths, with lengths ranging from 11 to 35 meters.

The marina features Bellingham's Unifloat dock system with high freeboard and extra-wide walkways. It also offers the latest in amenities and security. All slips are single berth with provisions for utilities, including metered power and metered potable water. The larger slips also feature reticulated sewer pumpouts.

"We have worked hard to ensure every aspect of the marina was completed to the highest standard," said Craig Evans, club general manager, in a statement. "The larger slips will help satisfy the growing number of people considering larger craft; initially a lot of interest for the larger berths came from existing club members."
