Lake Travis Marina Adding Slips in Phased ProjectPublished on March 30, 2018
The water levels are high on Lake Travis in central Texas, and Austin Cameron, the owner of NorthShore Marina, has decided to take advantage of these post-drought conditions. He has embarked on a multi-year renovation project that will add more slips and other amenities to meet an anticipated increase in demand.
In the first project phase, started in April and completed in June, Flagship Towing built and installed 71 new covered wet slips ranging from 28 to 46 feet. The galvanized steel frame concrete floating docks were constructed from materials supplied by Meeco Sullivan. That brings the current number of docks at NorthShore to 268, making the marina one of the largest on Lake Travis.
Cameron plans to add an additional 52 docks in 2019 in conjunction with the renovation of the ship store and the addition of a second tram to transport boaters from the parking lot to the water.
The marina slips have electrical service and city water. The facility also offers premium fuel, pumpout service both at the slips and at the ship store and an amenity deck for boaters.
Even if the water levels at Lake Travis drop again slipholders won’t have to worry, the marina’s operations manager said. NorthShore is the truest deepwater marina on Lake Travis, so its slipholders will always have access to the lake.
