Florida Marina Rebuilds after Hurricane

When Hurricane Irma tore through Florida last year, it left $53.4 billion of destruction in its path. Family-owned Moss Marine, a full-service marina located in Fort Myers Beach, was one of the businesses devastated by the category five storm.

The marina was determined to rebuild its 49-year-old facility better than before. It chose Golden Marine Systems, a sister company of Golden Boat Lifts, to manufacture a state-of-the-art dock system.

The project included the installation of 7,500 square feet of aluminum docks with stainless steel components. The decking and fascia board are a low maintenance, long-life composite materials. The Golden Marine Systems dock system allows for adjustable cleats, finger piers and pile guides.

The company led the project, coordinating everything from obtaining the permits to scheduling and overseeing the installation of the docks, utilities and fuel system. The scheduled completion date was November 2018.

Moss Marina has direct and unobstructed deep-water access. Its amenities include wet and dry storage, a fuel dock and boat repair facilities. Shoreside, it offers a boater’s lounge with laundry and showers, and a complete ship’s store.
