Safe Harbor Marinas Completes New Facility in Grand Haven, Michigan
Community Building Addition Provides New Amenities to Boaters
By: Bixby Brands
The 2022 community building project began with the demolition of a previous facility that was underutilized and in disrepair. Following the acquisition of the marina in 2016, Safe Harbor began implementing plans to improve operations and enhance the marina experience for members and guests of Safe Harbor Grand Isle.
"Boating with family and friends is a summertime activity that West Michiganders look forward to every year", said Safe Harbor General Manager Pete DeJong. "We're excited about the new facility because it gives our teammates a professional space to be proud of and empowers them to provide an exceptional experience to our members and guests. We love providing a fun and relaxing environment that compliments the boating lifestyle, and this space is a perfect fit."
The 4,000 square foot facility has a bright exterior with large storefront windows, planter boxes with vibrant landscaping, and an open breezeway with indoor/outdoor fireplaces and seating. The adjoining pool, spa and trellis area is perfect for lounging in the sun while watching boats cruise the channel leading to Lake Michigan. Inside features a large member lounge area, laundry facilities, private bathrooms with showers and a fitness center. Members also have access to private storage lockers, as well as additional storage and maintenance services through the service department.
Safe Harbor hired local firm and long-time partner, Platinum Contracting Group to construct the new facilities.
"Safe Harbor Grand Isle is a popular destination providing countless memories to our family and friends throughout the years" said Platinum Contracting Group Director of Operations, Bret Mackey. "We're proud to partner with Safe Harbor on this project and are excited to see this summertime destination continue to evolve and provide boating experiences for many years to come."
Safe Harbor will continue to add facilities at the marina by relocating and building a new service department, parts department, and ship store (retail). The project is slated to begin later this summer and be complete by late fall 2023.
