The transient fuel dock at Morningstar Marinas Mayport has recently been replaced. Located at the Mayport Inlet just East of Jacksonville, Fla., the fuel dock replacement was part of the complete redevelopment of the marina waterfront.

“The basin was in-operable and the fuel dock had been destroyed in a collision,” reported Matt Shapiro, Assistant Vice President of Morningstar Properties.

Morningstar Properties hired Bellingham Marine to replace the 14-ft by 229-ft fuel dock. “We built the original fuel dock in 1994,” said Ron Carey, Manager of Project Development for Bellingham Marine.

Prior to and during reconstruction boaters were forced to travel inland for fuel and transient dockage. “The lack of services caused many boaters and traffic to leave the area; the closest fuel and dockage facilities are miles away,” said Shapiro. “Our goal is to refocus the boating energy in Jacksonville to the Mayport area, and completing this project was step number one.”

The Mayport location, at the inlet to the Atlantic, is the best destination for travelers up and down the east coast or local blue water boaters. “Mayport is the newest addition to the Morningstar network. Quickly getting the facility condition up to our high standards in order to offer our full range of services was a priority and that made Bellingham the right choice,” said Shapiro.

In addition to the fuel dock, which offers ethanol free gas and diesel, the marina has two dry storage buildings offering dry storage for 210 boats up to 30’ in length plus wet slips for boats up to 150 ft in length. Morningstar Marinas is a collection of high quality marinas and marine properties throughout the Mid-Atlantic and the Southeastern United States. Morningstar Marinas offer a full range of services from wet and dry slip rentals to full service hospitality.
