Bayview Harbor Upgrades Marina BasinPublished on August 23, 2022
Bayview Harbor, located between New York Harbor and Cape May in Barnegat Light, New Jersey, recently completed renovations on one of its two marina basins. Bayview Harbor has 150 slips that can accommodate vessels 25 to 120 feet in length. The marina recently upgraded its north basin by replacing the old fixed docks with new slips from Golden Marine Systems (GMS). According to Mike Shanley, president of GMS, the project utilized Golden Marine Systems’ 850 Series single track system which features adjustable cleats, pile guides, and finger piers. Golden also manufactured the gangways. The crew at Bayview topped the docks and gangways with Cumaru hardwood decking. The new slips, which comprise over 9,500 square feet of dockage, are equipped with water and either 30 or 50 amp electrical service. Picnic tables, bathrooms, and showers have also been added to the campus.
“Our fixed docks were in need of repair and our new floating docks are so much more accessible,” said owner Tom MacArthur. “Many customers have expressed how happy they are with the investments and improvements.” Bayview has plans to continue the improvements by installing a pumpout station on their fueling dock and constructing new buildings at both of the two basins. Similar to the upgrade in the north basin, the marina plans to overhaul the south basin as well by replacing the old docks.
“Bayview Harbor is comprised of what had been two multi-generational marinas along one of the prettiest stretches of Barnegat Bay,” MacArthur said. “The facilities had become a little tired over time and it has been so exciting to combine them and breathe new life into the marina for another generation. New floating docks, plus gardens and trees, combined with our stunning views of Barnegat Bay makes it beautiful for our boaters.”
The marina’s location near the Barnegat Inlet provides easy entry to the Atlantic for seasonal and transient boaters, as well as access to topside amenities such as restaurants, shops, galleries, and the Viking Village fishing fleet. The marina offers gas and diesel fuel, a 40-ton travel lift, mechanical and hull services, a ship’s store, and winter storage.
