James Island Yacht Club recently marked the grand opening of its new dock in Charleston Harbor on James Island, S.C.

The club’s existing fixed pier and small launch float were replaced with a new fixed pier and 400 feet of concrete floating docks from Bellingham Marine. “The [new] dock was constructed with great care and sacrifice by a dedicated group of yacht club members who served unselfishly to ensure its success,” said club commodore Mike Spivey.

At the end of the new fixed pier is a 240-foot Unifloat dock for short-term mooring, and running parallel to the pier is a 160-foot Unifloat launch dock. Two new gangways provide pedestrian access to the floating docks from the pier, and a hoist helps to move boats into and out of the water.

“Without Bellingham Marine’s involvement, the project would not have been supported by the club,” said David B. Hazeltine, lead architect on the project for Cusick Hazeltine Architects LLC.
