New marina in Key West opens

Feb 27, 2014 by Guest Writer

Stock Island developer Matthew Strunk has opened a new marina in Key West, Stock Island Marina Village. Strunk designed the marina, which was built by Bellingham Marine, to attract megayachts as well as shrimp boat captains.

Located in Safe Harbor, the marina is accessed from the Atlantic through an entrance channel dredged to a depth of 25 feet.

The first phase was completed in November, opening 128 slips in the marina’s north basin for boats up to 70 feet. Two side-tie docks were put in to provide superyacht moorage for vessels up to 250 feet. The second basin houses the marina’s older live-aboard moorage with 80 slips.

The marina offers in-slip pump outs and 480A, 3-phase electrical service. High-speed fueling is available on a 430-foot fuel dock. Upland amenities include a ship’s store with a captain’s lounge and an outdoor bar and grill, dog parks, and an organic community garden.
