WORLD NEWS Further expansion for Southern USA: Southern Marinas Holdings II, a partnership between a Denver-based investment firm and Southern Marinas, has added Hayden Lake Marina in Idaho and Millstone Resort and Marina in Missouri to its portfolio. In the midst of beautiful forests, crystal-clear waters and 40 miles of shoreline, Hayden Lake Marina offers the only public moorage on Hayden Lake, one of the most popular lakes in the Coeur d’Alene region of North Idaho. The full-service marina includes covered wet slips, winter storage, an extensive boat rental fleet, ship’s store, fuel dock, a boat service centre, restaurant and bar. Hayden Lake Marina is ideally located 45 minutes from Spokane, Washington and is nestled in one of the hottest property markets in the US, known for its gorgeous summer weather and an abundance of outdoor activities. “As we continue to expand our geographic footprint into the western US, Hayden Lake Marina complements our recent acquisition of Elliott Bay Marina in Seattle,” said Andrew Gendron, principal and chief investment officer with Southern Marinas. “Being able to acquire the only marina on such a beautiful lake is a rare occurrence.” Millstone Marina sits at the heart of Lake of the Ozarks, one of Missouri’s premier vacation destinations. It is the largest and most tenured marina on the lake and is the only RV resort with direct waterfront sites. The facility comprises covered wet slips, RV sites with utility hook-ups, an extensive boat rental fleet, ship’s store, dog parks and two onsite restaurants. Southern Marinas has now acquired five marinas this year. It has plans to close on several others before year end as it continues to build a geographically diverse portfolio strategically located across the USA. Revamping the Leesburg waterfront USA: An ambitious public waterfront revitalisation project has been completed in Leesburg, Florida. The project includes a mix of Golden Marine fixed and floating docks. Situated on Venetian Gardens, a tranquil park-like cove on Lake Harris, the installation expands public boating access in the area and enhances recreational opportunities for residents and visitors. Golden supplied its durable 9 Series aluminium system for the fixed docks. Designed for greater piling spacing than can be achieved with a comparable timber structure, it saved the City of Leesburg significant costs and made the location more attractive from the shore, as well as from the water, as fewer piles are needed. Manufactured to ISO 9001:2015 standards using fully welded 6061 T6 marine grade aluminium with stainless steel fittings, the system has a life expectancy of over 35 years and is backed by a ten-year limited warranty. For the floating dock section, Golden used its 850 aluminium series. Highly stable, it has the same premium build quality as the fixed dock and features adjustable pile guides, cleats and 22 finger piers with power pedestals, water service and a fire suppression solution. The docks feature WearDeck composite decking, a virtually maintenance-free solution with the appearance of real wood. Golden also supplied four heavy-duty gangways and a security gate. “The docks turned out great,” said John Folker, City of Leesburg project manager. “We host several bass fishing tournaments that have a lot of boating and pedestrian traffic. Plus, the area ties into many popular islands within Lake Harris and its adjoining lakes. The revitalised waterfront with new docks will be a huge asset for the city.” CLARIFICATION Idan Cohen’s article (p.36 Marina World September/October) states he is the representative of the Marine Innovation Association in ICOMIA.
