MUSKEGON, MI – A new $12 million Muskegon Lake marina on which construction is about to begin will be one of very few in Michigan able to accommodate “super yachts.”
The 233-slip marina that is part of Adelaide Pointe will have several 80- to 100-foot slips and one 150-foot slip, according to developer Ryan Leestma.
The biggest slip will accommodate yachts that currently can only dock at Bay Harbor near Petoskey, or Chicago.
“For super yachts, this 100% definitely puts (Muskegon) on the map,” Leestma said.
Dredging for the marina will begin soon and must be completed by May 1, Leestma said. The 72,000 yards of dredged material will be used as fill on the 30-acre Adelaide Pointe site, located at the end of Western Avenue. The lake bottom in that area is free of contamination, Leestma said.
Adelaide Pointe is at the site of the former West Michigan Steel foundry.
Site work for roads and utilities is already underway, with the foundation of the foundry being dug out, Leestma said. The concrete foundation will be recycled and used as road gravel for the development, he said.
Already operating on site are boat and RV storage facilities and commercial incubator facilities.
