New marina has new technology

Dania Beach Marina in South Florida has reopened after a $7.5 million renovation. The city-owned marina now has capacity for 120 boats up to 50 feet, and features a state-of-the-art dock system designed to last more than 50 years.


Renovated by Bellingham Marine, the concrete floating docks feature corrosion resistant fiberglass through-rods and a chemical free, composite waler system. According to Bellingham Marine, this is the first marina in the U.S. to build a dock system of this type.


“The development of a composite waler and fiberglass through-rod system has been a long time in the making,” Bellingham Marine President Everett Babbitt said. “We anticipated the coming of this trend a number of years ago and have been working closely with companies in the composite and fiberglass industries to ensure the development of materials that would meet our strict engineering and performance specifications.”


Other improvements include a new pumpout facility, fish cleaning stations, repairs to the seawall, new shoreside buildings, and gazebos with views of the waterfront. The marina sits east of the ICW near the Dania Beach boulevard bridge just south of Port Everglades.
