Renovations to Newport Yacht Club

SF Marina Systems installed its Type 300 floating breakwater at Newport Yacht Club in the Northeast corner of Newport Harbor in Rhode Island. The breakwaters, which replaced a fixed wave fence and pier, will provide better wave attenuation and enhance boaters’ docking experience with floating docks.

The outside of the floating breakwater will accommodate larger vessels up to 120 feet.

SF Marina Systems and Newport Yacht Club started planning the fixed pier replacement in 2013. The company installed the first phase of the project in 2014 and completed the second phase in 2017. The engineer for the project was Harbor Engineering and the contractor was Reagan Construction.

Newport Yacht Club designed and built its own wooden finger docks, and SF Marina adapted attachment hardware for them.
