Storm-proven attenuator protects Sunset Bay

Safe Harbor Sunset Bay in Hull, Massachusetts has a new 920ft (280m) long SF Marina floating concrete breakwater.

Made up of 14 Type 400 SF Marina pontoons, the attenuator is of storm-proven design, absorbing and distributing the stress loads that occur during violent weather. It features what is claimed to be the thickest concrete surface layer on the market, doubling the reinforcement of the pontoons to ensure long life. The breakwater is secured to the seabed with 30in (76cm) steel piles.
General manager, Paul Bilbo, explained the investment: We chose SF Marina for our pile-secured breakwater because its simply the best. It has already been hit by several storms and worked great. The marina is a better and safer place with it out there.
With access to the vibrant sailing waters of the US Boston Harbor Islands, Safe Harbor Sunset Bay has 181 seasonal slips, 801ft (244m) of transient dockage and 20 moorings. It has a full-service boatyard with indoor and outdoor winter storage, a three-storey waterside restaurant and is within easy walking distance of public beaches.
The marina is part of the Safe Harbor Marinas group, the largest owner and operator of marinas in the USA, with over 100 locations across 22 states.
