Recent Renovations at Port St. Pete

Port St. Pete, one of the newest superyacht marinas in Florida and the only one of its kind on the state’s Gulf Coast, now combines the best of land and sea.

“The recent $5 million renovation of Port St. Pete was planned with the ultimate goal of making maintenance easier for visiting captains,” says Walt Miller, marina and port manager. “The Port can accommodate some of the largest yachts in the world and has been revamped to allow a wide variety of vendors and their service vehicles to work on the wharf, right alongside the vessel, to perform dockside maintenance. Also, our Port is always accessible due to our depth of 23 feet. Other perks include discount dock rates, 24-hour security, on-site U.S. customs and immigration clearance, six power pedestals, which provide a variety of connections at each pedestal including 480v, 3-phase, 600a, as well as 240v and 208v service, to meet the electrical needs of superyachts, and an on-site concierge to create memorable experiences for superyacht owners, captains and their crew.” www.stpete.org/port
