Windward Marina Group upgrades its Florida marinas

A year after purchasing Beach Marine in Jacksonville, Florida, the Windward Marine Group has embarked on a major facelift to improve the marina’s docks, increase storage efficiency, upgrade lighting and renovate customer service areas, seawalls and the concrete paving.

Beach Marine currently has about 300 dry storage slips and another 177 wet slips. The renovations are needed to restore slips lost in a hurricane a few years ago and to provide the amenities that the community is looking for, said Paulina Johansson, project manager for Windward Marine Group.
