Coastal Properties Management was awarded its second consecutive contract to manage the marina piers at Riverwalk Landing in Yorktown, Va.

Coastal was awarded the first management contract in 2005 as Yorktown was developing the new facility for use by transient recreational boaters cruising Chesapeake Bay, as well as a base of operations for a local schooner to run day excursions.

The two long, floating concrete piers also accommodate tall ships from around the world and commercial cruise ships. Vessels as large as 400 feet can be accommodated for transient dockage.

Coastal, of Annapolis, Md., manages and owns several marinas throughout the Chesapeake Bay region from Baltimore to Yorktown and on the Potomac River.
