The new megayacht marina at Seattle’s Wards Cove recently opened as part of the Lake Union waterfront development project.

“Finding moorage for yachts over 75 feet within Seattle’s city limits is extremely challenging,” said Bill Weisfield, CEO of Wards Cove Packing Company, in a statement.

The marina features Bellingham Marine’s Unifloat system designed for megayachts, with 11 slips measuring 95 to 100 feet in length. Nine of those slips have already been leased.

Each slip is equipped with 200-amp dedicated power, telephone, Internet and television services, pumpout, freshwater systems, and wash-water treatment posts with a phosphate cartridge and sediment filter to prevent spotting.

Wards Cove on Lake Union is a new waterfront community comprising 12 floating home sites, a megayacht marina, and 14,500 square feet of office space. Floating home sites feature extra wide Unifloat docks and full utilities, including power, sewer, water and gas. Upland construction is expected to begin in the spring.
