The unloading of the first 9 of 12 containers on the new peninsula at Nanny Cay heralded the arrival of the new docks for phase one of the new outer marina. Two specialists from the docks’ manufacturers, Walcon Marine, arrived yesterday to start the Meccano-esque assembly of the pontoons. They are working with some of the Nanny Cay Projects team and Husky Salvage & Towing.
Today, the first seven completed pontoons were splashed. These pontoons will form the main bulkhead along the mangrove-lined shore with the fingers and T-heads feeding off these.
The earthworks to create the marina and peninsula are in the closing stages with the marina entrance now under construction.
Sheet piling to create the marina bulkhead along the peninsula is now moving apace at both ends of the marina, and the entry bridge will start to take shape next week with the laying of three major crossbeams.
When completed the new marina will have 120 slips suitable for yachts from 30′ to 75′ with T-heads and a bulkhead capable of berthing megayachts to 160′ in length. The first half of the marina will have a controlling depth of 14 feet, the second half, 12 feet. The 6.5-acre Outer Marina peninsula will have 8 new condo blocks each with three 4-bed and four 3-bed condo units.
