WORLD NEWS Coming up… VIETNAM: Marinetek has won the tender to build the marina system at the new Ana Marina in Nha Trang, Vietnam. The company will work with project planner and consultant Camper & Nicholsons Marinas. Plus Marine has been contracted to provide dockside equipment. Read the full story in our May/June issue. Special amenities for Blu Harbor USA: Bellingham Marine was contracted by The PAULS Corporation, a private development group based in Denver, to engineer, design and manufacture a new concrete floating dock system for the Blu Harbor community development in Redwood City, California. The project consisted of the removal of an outdated marina and the engineering and construction of a new concrete floating dock system. The new development includes a 64-slip marina, 402 apartments, a human powered watercraft launch dock and a saltwater pool. Boat slips are available to the general public and not tied to rental of the Blu Harbor apartment units according to the developer. Marina tenants will have unrestricted access to the pool, spa, fitness studios and outdoor showers. Various updates were made to the infrastructure of the marina to ensure it met current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations, including the creation of multiple ADA compliant slips, an 80ft (24m) accessible gangway and wide, stable docks. “The beauty of concrete floating docks is that they provide an unrivalled level of stability that is a comfort to those with mobility concerns,” said Matt Salmon, president and CEO of ECR Construction, general contractor for the Blu Harbor Development. Another unique amenity is the low freeboard kayak dock that was included to allow stress-free launching of watercraft such as kayaks and stand up paddle boards. The kayak dock is attached to the back side of the main walk near the seawall for easy access. “When it comes to floating docks with ultra-low freeboards, concrete floating docks are the best option,” said Bellingham Marine CEO and president Everett Babbitt. “The continuous flotation delivered by concrete docks allows for the lowest possible freeboard with the highest possible live load capacity.” The marina and community expansion are subject to the San Francisco Bay Plan, which sets regulatory standards to ensure that development will be resilient to rising sea levels. The entire Blu Harbor site was raised by five feet (1.5m), creating the need for Bellingham Marine to reduce the size of the previous marina by roughly 1,000ft² (93m²). Bellingham’s scope of work included demolition of the existing glass fibre docks and all existing utilities, and all new construction from the gangway down including engineering, design and manufacture of the marina’s new concrete floating dock system. The company also performed all pile, utility and fire system installation work. 2017 Marina Conference UK: The 2017 Marina Conference, to be held 26th-27th April in Southampton, focuses on a theme of ‘tomorrow’s customer’. An ageing boat owner population and a younger population who are not currently filling the shoes of the older boat owners are problems all marinas face today. People’s expectations are also higher than they have ever been and competition is stiff. Alongside a keynote speaker, the event will be supported by panel-led discussions on new consumer trends and the future boating customer. Other sessions include: • Marina of the Year – how do they do it? • End of boat life/debt recovery/tort – panel discussion • Water space utilisation • Preparing for the unexpected • Innovation/new technology • Technical update The breakout sessions will include an update on working at heights, an opportunity to hear from the Valuation Office Agency on business rates, and a discussion on how facilities can be made more accessible for ageing boaters. The 2017 Marina Conference is organised by British Marine and The Yacht Harbour Association (TYHA) and is sponsored by Walcon Marine.
