CLEAN WASTEWATER DISPOSAL PierPump – Trouble-free disposal of waste and bilge water from boats and yachts. When installing a wastewater management system harbor operators have to make several decisions depending on the location, number of berths and size to find the optimal system. The Vogelsang PierPump is a customer-oriented high-performance solution, which is easy to operate and allows bilge water or black water to be pumped directly into the sewage system. The integrated rotary lobe pump means that the PierPump is resistant to foreign matter, so that the vacuum extraction process does not come to stop if the wastewater contains foreign matter. Wastewater tanks are vacuum extracted in a very short time, and the voyage can continue. VOGELSANG LEADING IN TECHNOLOGY

Registration: Walker Marinas USA: Port 32 Marinas, a leading owner, operator and developer of coastal marinas, has purchased three marinas located in Naples, Marco Island and Cape Coral, Florida (the ‘Walker Marinas’) from Walker Marine Group. The transactions mark the first acquisitions to close following the completion of the company’s recapitalisation led by New York-based investment firm Fireside Investments. The Walker Marinas include around 1,015 slips and offer a variety of marine-related amenities. Each marina also features on-site sales and service operations by OneWater Marine as a long-term commercial tenant. Consistent with Port 32’s strategy of acquiring marinas in core coastal markets with highly desirable dry storage facilities, the Walker Marinas provide stable and recurring storage income, as well as commercial lease income from a well-established and highly respected sales and service tenant. Following the completion of the acquisitions and the completion of redevelopments in Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach Gardens, Port 32 will own and operate approximately 4,100 dry and wet slips and over 140,000ft² (13,010m²) of commercial tenant space. Joe H Miller IV, CEO of Port 32, stated: “We are delighted to welcome the Walker Marinas, their employees and customer base to Port 32. These are high quality assets, which fit tremendously well with our strategy of acquiring best in class facilities in each of our target markets. Our operating approach and focus on customer service align well with the way Jim Walker has run these marinas.” Jim Walker, president and CEO of Walker Marine Group, said: “I am pleased to see my marinas go to Port 32. It gives me great comfort to know that my customer base will continue to be served by a like-minded operator, focused on delivering a great customer service experience consistent across all marinas.” – September/October 2021 11 SUCCESSFUL WATERFRONT THE #1 DEVELOPMENT MARINA STARTS BUILDER.
