Volvo Ocean Race Boats berthed at SF Marina Systems Concrete floating docks in Newport, RI – USA
The Volvo Ocean Race sailboats arrived in Newport, RI during the night of May 6th in a spectacular nighttime finish. When the sails were dropped, the boats moored at a concrete floating dock supplied by SF Marina Systems. SF Marina Systems type 1240 – Solid Concrete dock was chosen for the new Fort Adams pier project. Mecco Sullivan wooden fingers were attached to the concrete dock providing individual slips for the Volvo Cup boats.
After the sailboats have departed, and the event wrapped up, the new concrete dock will remain in place and serve the Fort Adams park and Sail Newport Organization for decades to come, providing a strong, stable, low maintenance dock for future events and vessel docking.
SF Marina Systems USA is based on Gloucester VA, where our engineers design and build concrete floating structures, marina systems and floating breakwaters.
