Paradise Island Marina Upgrading for Superyachts
Sterling Global Financial has begun the transformation of the existing Hurricane Hole Marina off Paradise Island in the Bahamas to Hurricane Hole Superyacht Marina at Paradise Landing. The company has chosen Bellingham Marine to manufacture and install the floating concrete dock system for the new facility.
The original Hurricane Hole marina was located within a scalloped-out basin in the harbor, providing a fairly protected spot for vessels. “What they’re doing now is an expansion of the basin and protecting it with breakwaters at the entrance. The interior basin is going to be even more protected now,” said Steve Ryder, senior project development manager at Bellingham Marine. The developer has also dredged out the marina to a 13.5-foot depth.
