THE MEDIA VOICE OF THE GLOBAL MARINA INDUSTRY

New docks at Blue Haven

TURKS & CAICOS: Marina Technologies Inc (MTI) has replaced the dock system at Blue Haven Resort on Leeward Channel in Providenciales Island that was destroyed by Hurricane Irma in 2019.

The marina, long-renowned for its boutique-style charm and idyllic location, now offers 71 slips for megayachts up to 220ft (67m) at a heavy-duty aluminium dock arrangement manufactured at MTIís factory in Montreal, Canada.
The pontoon system has large top-access utility troughs for faster and easier utility installation and maintenance, MTIís proprietary grooved composite decking, polyethylene floats, and PVC fendering with full-length internal aluminium backing plates. The new docks were fitted to existing steel pipe piles that were largely undamaged by the storm. This significant cost-saving was possible, says MTI project development manager Bob Berry, because ď[the MTI] pile guides are adjustable to ensure an accurate fit to each pile.Ē
Special features of the rebuilt marina include in-slip pump-out, ample electricity supply and in-slip high-speed fuelling using built-in hydrants and mobile fuel carts. This eliminates large and unsightly dockside fuel dispensers and pumps. Wide-ranging services and amenities are offered to marina guests including a crew lounge.
