Press Release

May 2, 2012


Destroyed by Hurricane Ike in 2008, Bayland Marina, located outside of Houston, Texas in the Upper Galveston Bay, celebrated its grand reopening on April 5th with a ribbon cutting ceremony. The city Mayor, his staff and other prominent local civic leaders were present along with tenants of the marina and some of the contractors who worked on the project.

The celebration was kicked off with speeches giving special thanks to the individuals and companies involved in the rebuild process. One of the highlights of the celebration was a flag raising ceremony conducted by the Sea Scouts and their talented Bugle Corps.

"People in Baytown had waited three and a half long years for this day," said Parks and Recreation Director, Scott Johnson. Bayland is the only marina in the area, so when the marina was destroyed, local boaters had to move their boats to locations outside Baytown. "There were a lot of happy faces at the grand opening," remarked Andrew Gibb, Manager of Project Development for Bellingham Marine. "The feedback from the City has been wonderful and the boaters are elated to be back home."

The new marina features floating concrete docks from Bellingham Marine designed to withstand an 18’ storm surge. High 20" freeboard, storm surge protection, upgraded power and full utilities services at the slip are just a few of the features of Bayland’s new facility.

As the world's leading marina design-build construction company, Bellingham Marine produces Unifloat® concrete floating dock systems as well as timber and metal frame systems. The company also produces Unistack® dry stack systems for marinas worldwide.
