Marina Updates

Shipwright Harbor Marina in Deale, Maryland is now owned and operated by Herrington Harbour Marinas and has already begun initial improvements. Located on the Western Shore of the Chesapeake Bay, Shipwright features 250 deepwater slips along with haul-out and storage facilities.

Overlooking Anna Maria Sound, One Particular Harbor Marina in Bradenton, Florida has begun construction. This Margaritaville-inspired marina with direct no-bridge access to the Gulf of Mexico will be complete with a beach club, resort-style pool and spa and waterfront residences and will include floating docks. Construction on the marina is slated for completion in spring of 2018.

Shelter Bay Marina near the Panama Canal announces new renovations plans for its facilities in order to better suit the needs of its clientele.  A new marina office, fitness center, pool area, bathroom spaces, green areas and chandlery store among others will be part of this renovation, which goes hand in hand with the hiring of new general manager, Juanjo Boschetti.
