Vancouver adds slips

Apr 7, 2014 by Guest Writer

Bellingham Marine has completed construction on Canada’s newest marina, Milltown Marina, just outside of downtown Vancouver on the North Arm of the Frasier River on Richmond Island.


The marina’s wet slips can take 220 vessels up to 80 feet on floating concrete docks with full utilities. The marina also includes a dry storage building for vessels under 30 feet as well as a restaurant and club house.


An old creosote contaminated retaining wall was replaced with a “green wall” to encourage plant life. Sunken logs, concrete and rebar were removed from the slough floor, and a new bird and wildlife habitat islet was created at the mouth of the slough. Bellingham was hired to design, build and install the docks and electrical system.
