The city of St. Augustine in northeast Florida has constructed a $2.4 million breakwater with moorage for megayachts at the city’s Municipal Marina.



The 1,000-foot-long, L-shaped floating wave attenuator was installed to help protect the marina from storms and storm surge. According to a press release, the new breakwater can reduce a 3-foot wave to six inches.



The attenuator will also provide new dockage for nine perpendicular slips along the east-west portion for smaller power boats and three megayacht slips on the outer dock for vessels up to 200 feet in length.



Bellingham Marine designed, manufactured and installed the new breakwater including all electrical and plumbing work.
