St. Augustine Municipal Marina repairs underway
Funding support provided by FIND and Port District
In 2022, the St. Augustine Municipal Marina received notification of emergency funding from the Florida Inland Navigational District (FIND) for a repair project that was funded up to $500K dollars with an additional $250K dollars from the St. Augustine Port, Waterway, and Beach District (Port District), and those repairs are finally underway.
Built in 2013, the breakwater dock serves as a wave attenuator with a site-specific design to provide vital weather protection to the marina and its guests. As a result of its critical purpose, it is continually damaged by major storms and hurricanes. With the impacts of Hurricanes Ian and Nicole in 2022, the damage to the docks has hindered the marina’s ability to operate at full capacity.
The availability of slips will be limited during construction. Repairs began this week and are anticipated to be complete by February 2024.
Improvements to the docks include replacing 29 concrete pilings with steel pilings, larger wood walers, concrete modular floats, and installing all new water and electrical utilities.
The marina provides deep-water fueling services, free sewage pump-out service, potable water, overnight dockage, and moorings for hundreds of recreational and commercial boaters, marine fire and law enforcement vessels and thousands of seasonal vessels ranging from 20 ft. to 200 ft.
