Bellingham Marine recently completed work on Marinas International's Emeryville Marina in the San Francisco Bay area.
Developers of the marina hired Bellingham last year to rebuild the south basin, including new docks with larger slips and upgraded utilities. The marina builder also supplied floating docks.
The layout of the south basin also was significantly improved during the renovation. The fuel dock and the commercial fishing docks, originally along the inner shoreline, were moved to the outer edge of the basin. The work not only improved, access, but also freed up space to allow for a greater range of slip sizes.
"The layout changes gave us a lot more flexibility and allowed us to increase the total number of slips in the south basin by 30 percent," said Gilbert Welch, vice president of planning and operations for Marinas International, in a statement. "It also enabled us to move through the reconstruction process without having to displace any of our boaters on either a temporary or permanent basis."
The renovated south basin has 100 slips and caters to boats of 40 to 80 feet. Side-tie moorage is available for boats as long as 120 feet. The amenities include convenient access to power and water at the slips and sewer pumpout and fuel services on the commercial dock, where they can be easily accessed by all.
