SUPERYACHT FACILITIES

SUPERYACHT FACILITIES Marinetek worked very closely with Coastal Systems engineers and utility engineers to run all the utilities inside the floating docks. Some are run in the top-access trough down the centre of the dock and others run in pre-cast PVC sleeves. There are no utilities on the outside of the docks where they could become damaged and where they would be exposed to salt water. In addition to electrical power, utilities include potable water, in-slip pump-out Pier 66 now includes 50 megayacht slips but has flexible utilities so as to accommodate smaller vessels according to market demand. (per slip), fire suppression systems, TV, telephone, internet and high speed fuelling. Pier 66 Marina was completed on time and met its US million construction budget. “We had an aggressive schedule to get all work completed in time for the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in late October and we did it,” confirmed Kevin Quirk, vice president of marina operations for Pier 66 operator LXR Luxury Marinas. “I truly congratulate the team for making this project a great success,” he added. The marina now includes 50 megayacht slips for vessels up to 300 feet (91.4m) and landside amenities such as a captains’ lounge with stateof-the-art TV and sound systems and high speed internet; three restaurants; and all the amenities of the Hyatt Regency Hotel. “The new marina is absolutely beautiful and vessel owners and captains are all delighted with the new facility,” Quirk concluded. 34 www.marinaworld.com - March/April 2015
