October 3, 2017 – Commission Votes Tonight

The City Commission will vote tonight to award the bids to re-establish the Fuel Docks. Be mindful this vote is only for the Northern 300′ of the outside dock.  The Southern end of the dock is part of the much larger FEMA plan.

September 27, 2017 – Update

The fine folks at Automated Laundry Systems delivered and setup the replacement laundry equipment.  For the marina customers, the Laundry is OPEN.  2 washers and 2 dryers.

September 27, 2017 – Hurricane Irma

When asked if Hurricane Irma did any additional damage to the marina, I sometimes think there really wasn’t much left to damage.  I then think about the marinas around us that are literally GONE and am very thankful we incurred very little additional damage.

We still have 12 mooring balls, 5 transient slips, dinghy dock, short term dock, boat ramp and showers available.  Call for info (904) 310-3300 or visit our website for the contact form by clicking here.

 

Sept 1, 2017 – News to share!

FUEL DOCK TO REOPEN SOON

The City of Fernandina Beach advertised two Invitation to Bid packets for the marina on August 8th.
A mandatory pre-bid meeting was held August 18th.  Seven vendors attended that meeting and four of these vendors submitted bids.
All Bid Packages were opened on August 31 and bids were within the budget for each these projects.
On September 19th, the City Commission is scheduled to award contracts to two successful vendors.
Contracting with these two vendors should be done by September 30 and work should be completed 90 days after the actual contract date.
The first bid is for the repair of the timber walkway around the water front café and will include re-hanging the fuel, water, power, fire prevention and communication lines.
The second bid is for the safety enhancements and improvements of the North end of the outside dock, the fuel dock.  This is only for the northern most 300′ of dock and has nothing to do with the south end of the breakwater.  The breakwater is a separate situation (more news to follow).

When these projects are complete, Fernandina Harbor will be able to provide both Non-Ethanol gas and Diesel to the boating community.

Thank you to everyone for your patience and well wishes during this strange time.

 

Look for more info soon…..

We now have 12 mooring balls available for same day reservations.  Feel free to call the 904-310-3304 number and we will be glad to take your same day reservation.  The mooring field charge of $20.00 per night includes dinghy dock, bathroom and shower access.

In addition, we have been able to use T-Heads to make 5 advanced reservation locations.  These side tie docks are very specific in their power availability.  We are only allowing 2 weeks in advance for reservations.  The cost is 2.00 per foot per night.

Lots more to do!!!

March 28, 2017 – Marina Update

We completed the repairs to the docks that were discussed in earlier posts.  Those repairs have allowed us to return some of our long term boats back to their original locations.  That move has made a few spots available for overnight dockage.  Call us (904-310-3300) and we will try to accommodate your visit.

We do have a limited amount of short term dockage available, also.  This is on a first come first served basis.  The cost of the short term dockage is 20 cents per foot for up to 3 hours.  Again, please call before starting your trip to insure we are able to fit you in.

Twelve of our mooring balls are open and being used on a daily basis.  The cost for a mooring ball is $20.00 per night.

We still do not have fuel or pump out capabilities but we are currently looking into the repairs needed to bring both of these back online.

Keep checking back to follow our progress.

February 28, 2017 – Shrimp Festival Reservation
