LYC welcomes first yachts HONG KONG: The Lantau Yacht Club (LYC) welcomed its first member yacht and first visiting yacht on 30 th August, marking a key milestone for Hong Kong’s newly rebuilt marina. The soft opening involved the marina office, phase one of the marina, and the service yard, drystack and hardstand. Two-phase rebuild completes at private club USA: Hyannis Yacht Club, a private club in Hyannis, Massachusetts has had its marina system rebuilt in two phases by SF Marina. Two years ago, SF replaced the club’s T-head wave attenuator with a 135ft (41m) long breakwater, built using three SF300 floating concrete pontoons. These are held in place by nine steel piles with centre guides. In 2017, when a nor’easter hit the marina, the breakwater remained undamaged but the old, timber interior docks took a battering. These have now been replaced in phase two of the project, with SF 1024 dock sections fitted with HD guides for new steel piles. Stainless steel tracks have been incorporated to accommodate timber fingers for the 36 slips. The marina not only has stable, modern infrastructure but the breakwater, unlike its predecessor, remains in place year-round. WORLD NEWS Phase one of the marina comprises about two-thirds of the total berths, which range from 10-60m (33-197ft). The simple yet chic marina office is a key gathering point as well as acting as home base for member services, concierge and marina operations teams. Refurbishment works of the remaining sections of the marina and the clubhouse are in full swing with expected completion by the end of this year. More members will be moving into LYC Marina soon and a certain number of berths have been allocated for visiting yachts from overseas, as well as for yachts looking for safe shelter in the typhoon season. LYC Marina is operated by HKR International, a shareholder of the developer, and planning and design was undertaken by Marina Projects and Atkins. Swanwick Marina secures planning approvals UK: Premier Marinas, owner and operator of nine of the UK’s most prestigious marinas, has secured planning approval for a drystack extension and waterfront building at Swanwick Marina on the River Hamble in the south of England. The new ‘Pavilion’ building will house boat sales and marine business, and new food, beverage and general facilities. The approval also covers a new bridgehead entrance structure, additional car parking and trolley storage. The drystack, which currently has capacity for around 80 boats up to 11m (36ft), will be expanded to accommodate 112 boats. The landside developments follow the recent completion of Swanwick’s new £4 million floating marina. Built by Walcon, this offers 333 berths of 6 to 40m (20 to 13ft); an overall increase of 59 on the old configuration. – September/October 2020 13
