The city-owned Oyster Point Marina in San Francisco has recently completed replacement of piers 8 and 11. With direct access to the bay, Washington-based Bellingham Marine was general contractor. Oyster Point’s existing 20-year-old glu-lam, timber system was replaced with Bellingham Marine’s concrete floating docks fitted with upgraded utilities and accessories.
Demolition started in January. The marina’s guest dock, dock 8, was the first to be replaced and now provides 156 feet of side-tie moorage. Power and potable water are available on the dock.
Pier 11 was replaced with a 332-foot long main walk with 24 single berth slips for boats up to 45 feet.
The old docks were given to the America’s Cup to provide temporary moorage for racers over the summer. They will later be donated.
Oyster Point marina boasts 455 berths, a boat launch, fuel dock and a 300-foot fishing pier. Other amenities include a 33-acre park with hiking and jogging trail, picnic facilities and a 2.5-acre sandy beach.
