The new floating breakwater in the Newport Yacht Club

The new floating breakwater in the Newport Yacht Club

The Newport Yacht Club replaced their deteriorating fixed pier and wave fence with 235 feet of type SF 300 floating breakwater (approximately 72 meters). The new floating breakwater has improved the wave attenuation in comparison with the wave fence, and provided a consistent freeboard for boarding vessels up to 100 feet. The floating breakwater also has improved the view of the harbor for the slip holders behind. The Yacht Club’s volunteer committee assisted with installation and built on site wooden fingers that mated to the SF Marina Systems floating breakwater. For information about the project, please contact Mr. Mason Sears, SF Marina Systems USA.
