THE MEDIA VOICE OF THE GLOBAL MARINA INDUSTRY

More cats welcome in Kemah

USA: In its continuing efforts to meet the growing demand for dock space to accommodate 50ft (15m)+ catamarans on the Texas Gulf coast, Kemah Boardwalk Marina in Kemah recently modified its B Dock to create one long 450ft (137m) alongside dock.

Not only has this improved the marina’s flexibility to accommodate larger catamarans but the project has also widened the fairway in between A and B Docks, increasing the value of A Dock catamaran slips, which can now host larger vessels.
“With most catamarans larger than 45ft unable to access most of the region’s marinas due to their mast heights and bridge restrictions, we decided to take advantage of our location on Galveston Bay to offer these larger yachts an ideal homeport for exploring the bay and the Texas Gulf coast,” said marina manager Brad Grace. “The additional alongside-tie dock will now offer catamaran owners a Texas homeport option instead of being forced to keep their yachts in Florida.”
The Kemah Boardwalk Marina has become known throughout the region’s boating community for its hospitality, guest services and varied amenities, including a spacious pool and hot tub, poolside grilling area, numerous picnic pavilions, and clean docks with spacious walkways.
The Kemah Boardwalk itself and the Kemah Lighthouse District, just steps from the marina, offer visiting boaters over 34 restaurants, more than 27 shops, live entertainment, hotel accommodation, yacht charters and family amusements and attractions.
