Abstract: Encouraging tourism and access through the development of recreational marina facilities challenges a community and marina designer to create a Master Plan which incorporates a wide range of services, amenities and slip layouts, while maintaining environmental compatibility. Such a marina should ideally be equipped to handle both the water and land based traveler, serving as both a 'Port of Call' and a base for further land and nautical exploration, while also providing upland amenities for those interested in 'the waterfront' but who have no intention of actually boating. The development of such a facility is reviewed, with particular emphasis on the fact that the in-water marine aspects of the project be wholly integrated with the design of the overall plan.
