WORLD NEWS SF rebuilds neglected pier marina USA: The Marina at MacMillan Pier in Provincetown, Massachusetts has been revamped with a new system supplied by SF Marina USA. It had been unprotected from the elements for years and was beyond repair. The project called for nine SF400 Series heavily reinforced floating concrete breakwaters to protect the inner marina. These are specially designed to absorb and distribute stress during storms. Installed by lead contractor ACK Marine & General Contracting, the 590ft (180m) system is held in place with 18 steel piles. Nine SF1030 Series 3m (10ft) wide concrete pontoons of various sizes were used to rebuild the 249ft (76m) north and 351ft (107m) south docks. Provincetown reused its timber fingers Reconfiguring a popular town quay UK: Walcon Marine has completed a comprehensive reconfiguration of the mooring facilities at the popular and picturesque town quay in Lymington, Hampshire. The quay serves both leisure boaters and fishermen, and Lymington Harbour Commissioners had concluded that an upgrade was required to meet the demand for more visitor walk-ashore berths. The project took place between November 2019 and February 2020 and involved a series of smaller jobs as various existing moorings were moved and replaced and new ones added. Topping the list was the task to more than double the number of walk-ashore that attach to the docks’ embedded stainless steel T-tracks. Conduits and pipes for electricity and water are internal and make for a clean appearance and low maintenance. The completed structure supports vessels up to 46ft (14m) at around 50 slips. Located on the tip of Cape Cod, the natural deepwater harbour of Provincetown is where the Mayflower first set anchor in 1620. MacMillan Pier supports a mix of recreational and commercial traffic, including a ferry terminal and whale-watching operations. berths from 19 to 46 while at the same time continuing to offer a choice between visitor walk-ashore berths, with power and water, and lower cost river moorings. All pontoon infrastructure was replaced with Walcon System 21 pontoons to match the new walkashore facilities. The pontoons for the fishing fleet have been fitted out to a commercial standard with rubber D-fenders, GRP mesh decking and internal pile guides. Crossroads Marina opens for business MALDIVES: The Crossroads Yacht Marina, located a 15 minute fast boat ride from capital city Malé, has now opened. The facility, outlined in Marina World November/December 2018, forms part of an integrated leisure and lifestyle hub and is the first of its kind in the country. Catering for 30 vessels of 10 to 60m (33 to 197ft), it has fullservice back-up, crew facilities and concierge offerings. Onsite superyacht agency Asia Pacific Superyachts Maldives (APS) provides all paperwork, provisioning, services and itineraries needed for superyachts to enjoy their stay and maximise cruising potential. As of the end of June, lockdown restrictions are expected to ease and commercial and private flights will be allowed. A further boost to tourism potential was confirmed in April when fees to enter the Maldives were substantially reduced, making it a viable stopover for all yachts crossing the Indian Ocean. - May/June 2020 17
