MARINAWORLD@20 wedged between timber piles kept the Townsville Motor Boat & Yacht Club (TMBYC) in sunny, dry North Queensland going for decades. In 2006, however, tenders were out for a new marina that would be “the best on the [Australian] east coast”. The resulting 152-berth floating marina was built by Superior Marinas using its Elite concrete system and berths were serviced with Rolec pedestals with metered three-phase electricity and pump-out points. The project was primarily financed by Club members. Balboa Marina in Newport Beach, • California, USA closed in autumn 2008 for a significant rebuild by Bellingham Marine. The facility, owned and operated by California Recreation Company, a division of The Irvine Company, reopened on 1 st August 2009. Originally built in stages from the 1940s to the 1960s, Balboa needed extensive work to demolish and replace floating dock structures, seawalls, sheet piling and landside facilities. The new marina accommodates vessels of 20- 60ft (6-18m) at 105 double-berth slips and side tie spaces. Update to 2020: Balboa Marina has 132 slips of 20-100ft (6-30m) with direct access to Newport Harbor’s main channel. Marina Tel Aviv, the shoreline • centrepiece of Israel’s largest city and cultural capital, completed a major renovation in 2011. SF Marina replaced all piling, installed a new floating breakwater and a floating concrete pontoon system. Work on the 320-berth marina was completed strategically without displacing boats. The marina was originally developed in 2001 on redundant port land. Marina Bruinisse, a 540-berth • Dutch marina within the Den Daas Group, completed a major overhaul in the second quarter of 2011. Poralu Marine was contracted to supply a new pontoon system to bring it to 1,400- boat capacity. The marina has a circular shaped centrepoint surrounded by buildings, a natural recreational area and Seijsener in-deck power modules. Update to 2020: in the fourth quarter of 2019 private French marina A two-phase rebuild programme for Cabrillo Way Marina, San Pedro, California started in 2009 and completed in 2012. The number of slips was increased from 520 to 700. network Port Adhoc purchased Marina Bruinisse, along with two other Dutch marinas, from the Den Daas Group. By late 2011, Cabrillo Way Marina • in San Pedro, California, USA was fully rebuilt further to two years of planning and a two-phase construction programme. Bellingham Marine was contracted to rebuild the facility, which was long past its useful life, in 2009. Extensive excavation and dredging almost doubled the size of the original basin and expanded the number of berths from 520 to 700. Itämeren Portti, the best known • marina in Finland, was rebuilt in stages between 2016 and 2018 by Marinetek Finland. First built in 1991 and always fully occupied, the marina – in the upmarket holiday town of Hanko – has perfect access to island-studded sailing waters. Construction work included removing a small island, and building and installing fixed breakwaters. The completed marina has 320 berths with Rolec dockside pedestals and can accommodate boats up to 20m (66ft). One of the newest reinvented • marinas in the Caribbean Turks and Caicos islands, Blue Haven Marina was developed from a 2008 facility that had been left virtually untouched until 2013. During this time, it was hit by three Townsville Motor Boat & Yacht Club in North Queensland, Australia made a big leap forward in 2008/09 with a total rebuild. - July/August 2020 35
