THE MEDIA VOICE OF THE GLOBAL MARINA INDUSTRY

Golden centrepiece at Beach Marine

USA: Windward Marina Group has undertaken a radical lifts and docks renovation programme at its Jacksonville Beach Marina (Beach Marine) on the Intracoastal Waterway in Florida. The marina has over 180 wet slips and drystack for 300 boats.

The project called for 15 Golden aluminium four-post boat lifts with 28,000lb (13,000kg) capacity, and a further ten for vessels up to 40,000lbs (18,140kg). It also involved the installation of 25 customised Golden Marine Systems 9-Series aluminium walkways, configured as fixed docks, for access to each lift.
Each dock measures approximately 44ft (13.4m) long x 3ft (1m) wide and is built from fully welded 6061 T6 marine grade aluminium with stainless steel components, topped with an attractive Endeck composite decking.
“We’re seeing a new trend of marinas upgrading to lift slips,” said Michael Shanley, president Golden Marine Systems. “Especially for larger vessels that push the limits of indoor storage, lifts keep the boats out of the water and safe from the elements. They also provide owners fast and easy access, while reducing the need – and expense – for marina staff to be involved in every launch. In addition, marina owners are realising premium rates for lift slips with fast return on investments.”
Allen ‘Gus’ Gustafson, Beach Marine’s director of marina operations, gives positive feedback: “Our customers have been happy with the unrestricted access to their boats that the lift slips offer. We’re pleased with the product and currently working with Golden on adding more lifts in the future,” he confirmed.
Windward Marina Group is also in the process of upgrading Beach Marine’s shoreside power offering.
