Shipwright Harbor Renovations
Over the past two winters Shipwright Harbor Marina has undergone massive improvements. Herrington Harbour has long upheld a protocol to reinvest in their facilities (Herrington Harbour North and Herrington Harbour South) each year. Rebuilding docks, renovating restaurants, improving the grounds, and adding amenities and services are all standard operating procedure in Herrington's proactive philosophy. This approach now extends to Shipwright Harbor, so boaters can expect to see upgrades and improvements year after year.
In 2017 the work began as the team dredged the marina's surrounding waters, paved the entrance road to the marina, converted the pool to saltwater, cleared abandoned boats from the parking lot, and undertook several projects to clean and repair some docks in need of love – no small feats. They didn't stop there: energy and investment also went into additions such as high-speed wi-fi, and landscaping, new dock carts, new pool furniture, and a new webcam and website. Top it all off with utilities inspections and a few additional repairs and the team was ready for the 2017 season.
There was still more in store for 2018: new for this season, the marina has newly-renovated bathrooms, a fire pit, new storage lockers, an updated dinghy launch site, and new loaner kayaks and bikes! Read more and see before and after photos in the Shipwright Harbor Marina Scuttlebutt.
...Since I know how obsessed boaters are with bathrooms (as well they should be!), I asked for a bit more description of this renovation:
“The marina restrooms are being upgraded to provide members a relaxing spa feel, inclusive of new plumbing fixtures and equipment. En suite shower and bathroom facilities are featured in both the women's and men's restrooms. This feature provides not only privacy but also accommodates updated accessible needs for all members and guests use.
A clean, relaxing palette consisting of durable and high end materials have been selected. These materials include not only granite counter tops, wood louver doors, and sleek hardware, but also floor to ceiling wall tile and updated light fixtures throughout.“
