The solid concrete SF Type 1240, 1250, and Type 500 floating breakwaters were utilized, providing 14-16’ wide walkways, with a 25” freeboard. Designed to accommodate larger yachts the docks have superior features such as; Aluminum cleats Stainless steel bollards, Internal routed utilities, energy absorbing pile guides, and EPI decked finger piers.

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.
SF Marina Systems USA have provided the docks for the Americas Cup base in Bermuda. The first dock system was installed in the Dockyards area and provides for the Oracle team’s support boats and the racing catamarans. The dockyards location has constant commercial activity going on as it acts as one of Bermuda’s Commercial ports. As a result portions of the dock system need to be removed to allow the berthing of large ships. To accomodate this the dock system has been designed with large single cast 82′ fingers which are moored with Sea flex elastic Mooring Systems. In addition detachable pile guides allow the assembled section to move in one piece. For information about the project, contact Mr. Mason Sears at SF Marina Systems USA.
