Downtown Seattle welcomes new megayacht marina

BELLINGHAM, Wash. – A new megayacht marina located in the heart of downtown Seattle is now open. The marina is part of the new Wards Cove on Lake Union waterfront development and features Bellingham Marine’s Unifloat system, the company reported in a release this week.

The marina has 11 slips 95 to 100 feet in length. Wards Cove on Lake Union is a new waterfront community comprised of twelve floating home sites, a megayacht marina, and 14,500 square feet of office space. Floating home sites feature extra wide Unifloat docks and full utilities including power, sewer, water and gas. Upland construction is expected to begin in the spring of 2009.

“Finding moorage for yachts over 75 feet within Seattle’s city limits is extremely challenging,” said Bill Weisfield, CEO of Wards Cove Packing Company. The new marina gives megayacht owners in the Pacific Northwest the option to moor at a world-class facility in downtown Seattle.”

Weisfield said nine of the 11 slips have already been leased and interest in the remaining slips is strong.
