Following a $5.5 million transformation, Los Angeles' Marina Del Rey can now accommodate yachts up to 250 feet and a 15-foot draft.

"Del Rey Landing, with its new direct-fill fueling system, is capable of accommodating competitively priced megayacht bunkering and it is one of the few large marinas on the West Coast accessible without the need of a harbor pilot," said Greg Schem, president and CEO of Harbor Real Estate, in a statement.

"Being just minutes away from LAX International Airport, as well as other world-famous destinations, such as Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Malibu and Venice Beach, Del Rey Landing is now a prime stop for the luxury yacht community," he added.

The newly redeveloped marina's expanded dock capabilities include new power and technology systems that can provide any required power configuration up to 480-volt, 200-amp, 3-phase with plug-in or hard-wire connections.

Del Rey Landing's high-speed, state-of-the-art fueling system is capable of delivering fuel at 15 hose locations along its nearly 300-foot fuel dock at speeds of as much as 60 gallons a minute.
