Superyacht dock added at Pier 66 USA: Pier Sixty-Six Hotel and Marina in Fort Lauderdale, Florida has a new SF Marina floating concrete superyacht dock for its Pier South location. Owner Tavistock Development made the investment as its previous fixed dock became problematic. Its curved design limited the size of vessel that could tie up and its narrow dimensions made it hard to service boats. Ebsary Foundation Company installed 440ft (134m) of SF Type 2060 floating pontoons. Their 20ft (6m) width and 3ft (1m) freeboard easily accommodates superyachts of up to 350ft (107m) on the main berth. The structure is secured by steel piles with HDPE sleeves, offset to enable two-way golf cart traffic on the dock. Other superyacht-oriented features include a double row of composite timber rub rails and oversized 15 and 25-ton ship bollards. Manufactured in Sweden, the dock sections for Pier South were transported by cargo ship to Port Everglades, Florida. They are fitted with integrated utilities and in-deck pump-out. “We have had great feedback from everyone,” said marine director Megan Lagasse. “Owners and captains of large vessels are beyond thrilled to sit on 300 feet [91m] of floating dock; they just don’t get that opportunity often.” Pier Sixty-Six Hotel and Marina annually hosts the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. While both its Pier North and Pier South marinas continue to welcome boaters, the former hotel site is being redeveloped with a new and enhanced building that preserves its iconic tower. New condominiums are being added, as well as a marina promenade with shops, offices and restaurants. Redeveloping Hurricane Hole BAHAMAS: Hurricane Hole Marina, Paradise Island, is being transformed to include a restored combination of fixed and floating concrete docks, luxury residences, retail services, and upmarket dining and amenities for owners, guests and crew. Construction is underway, with completion scheduled for the fourth quarter this year. “This will be a new dimension in yachting in the Bahamas, and luxury living on Paradise Island,” said David Kosoy, executive chairman and founder, Sterling Global Financial, the project’s developer, manager and owner. “With great respect for Hurricane Hole’s place in the rich history of Paradise Island and the Bahamas, we are committed to restoring this famous marina into a premier yachting destination and a place for the community to enjoy.” The facility has been renamed Hurricane Hole Superyacht Marina at Paradise Landing and has had substantial support from the Bahamas Government. “This project is extremely good for Bahamas tourism and will employ a tremendous number of workers while creating long term value for the Bahamian tourism brand,” noted Khaalis Rolle, president of Sterling Advisory Services and former Bahamas Minister of State for Investments. Once complete, the newly redeveloped superyacht marina will feature 6,100ft (1,859m) of deep-water concrete docks, with slips up to 420ft (128m). The marina seawalls are WORLD NEWS designed to reduce wake and wave action in all conditions. The five-star marina will provide 24-hour security, onsite Customs and Immigration services, 400-amp, 480-volt power, fuel and pump-out service. – January/February 2021 13
