Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo, Fla., replaced its fixed concrete piers with concrete floating docks from Bellingham Marine, completing a four-year project.

“It’s a decision that has proven to have a huge return for the club’s dock owners,” Ocean Reef Club Marine Village Condominium Association president Keith Miller said in a statement.

The new docks feature concrete floats, rounded finger ends, composite trim, telescoping pile and underwater lights. They are engineered to withstand winds up to 120 mph and an 8-foot storm surge.

“The decision to upgrade our docks was one we knew would pay off,” board member Sandy Marks said. “A single slip that was priced at $250,000 before the renovation is now valued at close to $750,000. The returns are even more impressive for the owners of the largest slips.”
