Bradford Marine Bahamas Completes New Docks

Monday, June 29, 2009

Bradford Grand Bahama, Ltd., one of the Bradford Marine family of companies, announced the completion of 1,200 lineal feet of new docks on the west side of their Freeport, Grand Bahama shipyard. These new docks accommodate yachts and commercial vessels of all sizes, including the largest mega-yachts and super-yachts, and they have full utilities, drainage and work aprons.

Construction of the docks utilized almost 2,000 feet of steel pipe and 3,000 feet of 16 inch steel I-beam. Paul Engle, Bradford Marine Bahamas’ President, said “We are very excited about these new docks and our ability to service even more mega and super-yachts and commercial vessels. The new docks are able to handle vessels up to 400 ft LOA, and with deep draft and no overhead restrictions, Captains and crews will find them readily accessible.”

Bradford Marine Bahamas’ shipyard in Freeport, Grand Bahama has a 35-foot depth, a 1,200-tonne floating drydock, and a 150-tonne Travelift. In addition, they provide towing, salvage and vessel brokerage services in the Bahamas.
