Replacement docks double superyacht capacity

COSTA RICA: Enjoy Group has complemented an aluminium dock system at Marina Bahia Golfito on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica with a floating concrete pontoon solution from SF Marina. The addition doubles superyacht capacity at a destination that is becoming increasingly attractive to owners and crew of large yachts.

“Marina Bahia Golfito is a secluded tropical gem,” said Peter Santesson, SF Marina international project manager. “During the design phase of the project, we worked extensively with Enjoy Group to ensure the new docks would complement the quality and aesthetic of the extensive upscaling they were undertaking.”
The new array runs perpendicular to a 36ft/11m-wide walkway and consists of three piers that enable the marina to host two 300ft (91m) superyachts, two 200ft (61m) vessels and two 150ft (46m) yachts.
The docks are equipped with 400A/400V power supply, potable water and other utilities in concealed ducts, and individual floating concrete pontoons are joined together with SF Marina’s innovative connectors that have a breaking load of 2 x 99 tons per joint. The piers are anchored with Seaflex mooring hawsers, which can withstand a substantial drag force then retract to original size.
“We chose SF Marina because it is a well-recognised dock company – one of the best worldwide,” said Pedro Abdalla Slon, marina director. “The project fulfilled all our expectations and looks great.”
Roughly 325nm from the Panama Canal, Marina Bahia Golfito is a private marina offering a wide range of services, including separate crew lounges and eateries and a high-capacity fuel dock that can service two superyachts simultaneously. Enjoy Group has also expanded its adjacent beachfront hotel and has new condominium development and a restaurant.
