Safe Harbor Marinas adds superyacht docks in Florida

The extension includes four side-tie moorings (seven slips) for yachts as large as 200 feet and 10 slips for vessels as large as 60 feet.

Safe Harbor Marinas, the largest owner/operator of marinas in the United States, responded to increased demand for superyacht berths on Florida’s west coast by contracting Marinetek North America to design and build a section of bigger docks at The Harborage Marina in St. Petersburg.

The extension includes four side-tie moorings (seven slips) for yachts as large as 200 feet and 10 slips for vessels as large as 60 feet.

“The beautiful deep waters of Tampa Bay have attracted boaters for years, but the lack of facilities able to handle megayachts has made it a non-destination for these vessels,” Harborage Marina general manager Capt. Brian Sweeney said in a statement. “We get requests almost daily for large slips with adequate power and facilities, and now we are able to accommodate these people.”

Sweeney said Marinetek’s floating concrete dock system “has no wood, no walers and through-rods and none of the frequent and expensive maintenance associated with these components.”
