Yachting Boating World: Construction has started on the first New York Marina in more than 20 years, with a spring 2016 opening planned.

 

It has been over 20 years since the last opening of a New York Marina, but it seems that One 15 Brooklyn is now set to arrive in 2016.

The new facility, which is currently under construction, is situated between Piers 4 and 5 of Brooklyn Bridge Park.

The SUTL GROUP and Edgewater Resources, who hope to host a grand opening in spring 2016, are developing the three-project.

The completed New York Marina will feature 102 berths measuring from 16ft to 250ft in length, all of which will be protected by a 5.2m wide Marinetek concrete breakwater.

A quarter of the berths will be reserved for the Community Dock, which will provide free and affordable boating experiences for local groups.

Arthur Tay, chairman of SUTL Group, said: “We identified the perfect opportunity in Brooklyn with the vibrant, lush public spaces of Brooklyn Bridge Park, Manhattan skyline backdrop and open water.

Regina Myer, president of Brooklyn Bridge Park, added: “In New York City we are surrounded by water yet there are so few opportunities to interact with the harbour.

“This marina with its robust free and low cost programming, makes the waterfront accessible in new ways to even more New Yorkers and puts Brooklyn on the map for the global boating community.”
