The Port of Everett Marina in Washington State, the largest publicly operated marina on the West Coast, was among more than 20 marinas nation-wide considered for the prestigious industry award. Recent in-water and upland developments, quality customer service, high environmental standards, community and industry engagement and unique special events were among the attributes bringing Port of Everett’s ranking to the top.

“The Port of Everett is so much more than its 2,300 slips, which is an incredible amount of boaters to serve,” Marina Dock Age Editor Anna Townshend said. “Beyond all those vessels and the boatyard, it’s a local public treasure for anyone that wants to enjoy the waterfront. Not many marinas may be as big as the Port of Everett, but everyone can take away something from its amazing operation.”

Since the early 2000s, the Port of Everett has invested more than $165 million into its destination waterfront, including its multi-million-dollar effort to strategically recapitalize its marina facilities, clean up historic contamination from years of industry on the waterfront and work toward the full build out of its 65-acre mixed-use Waterfront Place development.

The Marina consists of three areas: South Docks, Central Docks and North Docks. Our facilities offer 10 visitor moorage docks, upland boat and gear storage options, a fuel dock, laundry and shower facilities, and a full service marine Crafts­man District with a state-of-the-art, environmentally sound boatyard, a haul out pier with a 75-ton Trav­elift and 35-ton Travelift, a 60-ton boat transporter, boom truck, forklift and tug boat services, a wash­down facility, and a mix of on-site marine related retail and repair services. Additionally, the Port oper­ates a 13-lane boat launch — the largest boat launch in Washington state — with ample parking and quick access to abundant fishing, crabbing and shrimping.

Marina facilities are judged on exemplary business practices in many categories, including business operations, facility improvements, advertising/marketing, environmental responsibility, community involvement and more.

“Earning this title is such an honor,” said Jeff Lindhout, Port of Everett Chief of Marina Operations. “This award is a true testament of the collective effort our team puts in every day to better serve our slip holders, visiting boaters and the greater Everett community in support of our vision to create a vibrant and welcoming waterfront that balances industry and recreation.”

“I feel very humbled to have received one of the Young Leader Awards,” Port of Everett Communications Specialist Kate Anderson said. “It’s great to see so many young people getting more involved in the recreational marine industry, as they are the next generation of boating.”

The Marina is complemented by the surrounding benefits of the Port’s destination water­front, better known as Waterfront Place. The 65-acre mixed-use property leverages both upland and in-water amenities creating a place for resi­dents and boaters to live, work and play. The wa­terfront features fine and casual dining restaurants, a distillery, two waterfront hotels, yacht brokerage, office, commercial and retail spaces, and coming soon, 266 apartment homes. This area is also home to more than 1,500 acres of public access including Jetty Island – the longest sandy beach in the Puget Sound – four miles of continuous wa­terfront trail, picnic shelters, parks and pla­zas, a splash fountain, and year-round special events including waterfront concerts, outdoor movies, car shows, art festivals and more.

Beneteau Oceanis Yacht 54By Zuzana Prochazka

Beneteau saw an opportunity to add a little thrill to any cruising adventure, so they took the hull of the First 53 racer (introduced just last year), and with a few fashionable changes, created the Oceanis Yacht 54, the new entry-level of Beneteau’s swanky Oceanis Yacht line. The result is a performance cruiser that sails like a witch and looks like a grande dame.

Design

Roberto Biscontini is the naval architect and Lorenzo Argento created the details of the exterior and interior design.

Riverest MarinaThe new owners of L’Orignal Marina offer boaters a new destination. Located in a charming francophone village in Eastern Ontario, this joined marina and restaurant venue is the ambitious initiative of long-time entrepreneur André Chabot and biologist Alexandra Quester, both residents of L’Orignal.

The purchase of the L’Orignal Marina was made official in November 2020. The new year was barely underway when all 50 available slips were already reserved. No wonder the addition of member and visitor slips is already planned for the 2022 season – the 2021 count is up to 62 power and sail already. At the moment, the Riverest Marina offers boaters a stop where they can launch their boat...

Galvanic CorrosionIt’s a scary thought – but whether your boat is made of wood, fiberglass, aluminum or composite – it’s slowly deteriorating under you. Part of this is the nature of the marine environment: Sun, moisture, waves, wind, movement and vibration all contribute to components breaking down.

But there are other factors that are much more concerning and act at a significantly faster rate that the environment can take credit for. One of these is commonly spoken of, but not terribly well understood: Corrosion. As boaters, we’re concerned with two main types of corrosion: Galvanic and Stray-Current. This edition will focus on galvanic corrosion – in two weeks, stay tuned for info on stray-current.

Mia and Caleb's EngagementOn July 23 last year, CYOB published a piece on a beautifully restored 1967 Trojan 42 Motor Yacht in Oromocto NB. (That piece was also expanded in CY magazine later in the year.)

One of our Canadian Yachting contributors, Denise Miller, had shared the article on my social media and a young man reached out and asked if she could connect him with the owners of the boat, Dave and Barb. Denise leapt into action and Dave and Barb were thrilled. They concocted a plan that the young lady, Mia, thought she was coming to model for a sales brochure for Dave to do charter tours.
