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.

The state Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy recently approved a permit for the marina that is part of a multi-use development that also will include condos, a hotel, restaurant, boat sales and more.
The marina will include a 730-foot-long, 12-foot-wide breakwall that will form the harbor for the marina. It will be constructed off an existing peninsula on the west side of the harbor and will include a public fishing pier, Leestma said.

The state didn’t want any rock riprap as part of the pier so it will be constructed of pilings, sheeting on the lakeside to control wave energy and a boardwalk on top, he said.
Construction of the marina will be completed by the end of the year, with slip usage beginning in 2024, Leestma said.
It includes 33 transient slips.

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.

Construction of a 55-unit condo building will begin this year and be completed next summer, as will a multi-use building, boater services building and restaurant, he said. Half of the condo units are already sold, he said.
Development plans also includes a $35 million hotel, for which designs currently are being developed.

Already operating on site are boat and RV storage facilities and commercial incubator facilities.
