Southern buys Elliott Bay USA: Southern Marinas Holdings II, LLC, a partnership between a Denver-based private investment firm and Southern Marinas, LLC, has purchased Elliott Bay Marina in Seattle, Washington. Elliott Bay Marina is one of the largest private marinas on the US west coast with 1,200 wet slips for vessels up to 300ft (91m) and 10 miles (16km) of moorage. It has a country club ambience with panoramic views of the Seattle skyline and Mount Rainier in the Olympic Mountains. Along with being conveniently located just minutes from central Seattle, the fullservice marina features repair facilities, a fuel dock, a convenience store, a Freedom Boat Club, and several notable retail outlets and restaurants. “My partners and I have been most fortunate to see our vision for Elliott Bay Marina come to fruition but the timing is right for our ownership group to transition the marina to a team whose principal focus is both marina and resort operations,” said John Kaiser, principal at Elliott Bay Marina. Gary Rosmarin, principal with Southern Marinas, said Elliot Bay is the perfect addition to the company’s growing portfolio of properties that will expand its footprint into the Pacific Northwest markets. Southern Marinas has a strong pipeline of assets and, in 2021 and beyond, it will be acquiring a select number of best-in-class marinas strategically located across the USA. Premier resort opens in Marassi EGYPT: Walcon Marine Australia and El Dawlia for Engineering & Contracting (EDECS) are partnering up to provide EMAAR Properties Group with a turnkey marina installation for the Marassi resort. Marassi, which is located 140km (87mi) west of Alexandria on Egypt’s Mediterranean coast, is one of the country’s premier resort developments. The project involves equipping a new manmade inner harbour with a range of berthing options. A total of 23 separate docks will accommodate up to 228 leisure craft of up to 45m (148ft) in length at fully serviced berths. The marina is being built using heavy duty and extra heavy duty versions of Walcon’s System 2000 aluminium walkway and finger pontoons. These are fitted with highly durable walnut WPC decking and continuous fender protection. To add a touch of exclusivity, the five and ten tonne cleats fitted to the pontoons are all Marassi branded. The marina is held in place by 186 steel piles, each protected from the sun and salt by HDPE sleeves and conical caps. Access to the docks is via 25 specially-designed gangways, also decked in walnut-effect, long lasting, environmentally friendly WPC material. Additional features include the latest in services, distribution systems and fire-fighting equipment to ensure a safe marina in full compliance with the latest global standards. Walcon has also installed a fully operational services dock for the provision of fuel and water WORLD NEWS and the removal of onboard liquid waste. Due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, Walcon supplied the marina infrastructure to EDECS, along with detailed guidance on the installation process. All of the marina components have been delivered and installed and the marina is fully operational. – September/October 2021 13
