The reconstruction of Maximo Marina will include 210 wet slips for boats as large as 110 feet. Seventy-five percent of the marina will have covered slips.

Maximo Marina in St. Petersburg, Fla., is going through a multi-phase, $25 million renovation that includes revised infrastructure and a slip reconfiguration with boat lifts from Golden Boat Lifts.

Reconstruction of the harbor, which is on the city’s southwest side in the Skyway Marina District, will include 210 wet slips for boats as large as 110 feet.

Covered marinas are a rarity in Florida, but 75 percent of Maximo Marina will have this convenience, including the slips for the largest vessels.

During the first phase Houston-based Orion Marine Group is installing 26 Golden 4-Post Boat Lifts, each of which has a 20,000-pound capacity, and six units that will handle as much as 24,000 pounds. The second phase will see 24 more lifts added in 2018.

"Golden Boat Lifts is an established company," Lee Hicks, Maximo Marina general manager, said in a statement. "They have an excellent reputation for follow-up service."

Maximo Marina also has drystack storage for an additional 300 boats. The facility sells new and used boats and is a complete service yard with a 50-ton Travelift.
