Construction starts on enclosed drystack facility in R.I.

North Kingstown, R.I.-based Mill Creek Marine recently began construction on its new sales, service and drystack boat storage facility at the Quonset Business Park.

The project is scheduled to be completed this fall. Mill Creek Marine is one of 168 companies at the business park, which employs 8,800.

"The growth we've experienced since we acquired Johnson's Boatyard in 2004, made possible by the exceptional service provided by our team, has increased our business by more than 52 percent," said Jim Shriner, president of Mill Creek Marine. "We were limited in our ability to manage our growth in our existing facility."

In addition to the service building, Mill Creek Marine is building what it says is Rhode Island's first enclosed drystack marina. The new facility will initially house 72 boats up to 38 feet. There are plans to increase the capacity to 168.

Mill Creek also will offer customers a flat-rate boating program that will include annual maintenance costs in the monthly storage fee, allowing the fixed costs of boating to be spread over the whole year.
