SF Marina Systems

Like us, our concrete breakwaters and docks are still here after the storm

In relation to the sea, there is no room for compromise. As manufacturers of products related to the sea, there is no other alternative but total commitment to the cause.

SF Marina System's concrete floating structures have almost 100 years of design history, research and development from which our “storm proven” systems have evolved. Longevity, low maintenance, and a single-cast design, with proven connections, endure decades of service.

Marina Systems

Our Marina Systems are a step above the typical wooden, aluminum or steel dock systems you’ve seen. We offer a complete line of all-concrete, single-cast designs with EPS styrofoam cores and protected steel reinforcements. The heavy mass of the structures offer stability and longevity. They are low maintenance, and accommodate high vessel and environmental forces, including high winds, waves and harsh winters. Our marina structures are aesthetically pleasing to view, and feel great under foot. They are customized with wood and composite treatments, and a thick deck surface to accommodate internal utilities, lighting, high-loading cleats and bollards, and small cranes. If you can cast it into concrete, we can design for it!

Technical Considerations

  • Freeboard heights from 10” to 30”
  • Widths from 8′ to 20’
  • Customizable lengths up to 100’ single-cast units
  • A thick concrete deck surface accommodates internal utilities, lighting, high loading cleats and bollards, small cranes
  • Anchoring systems include chain and bottom anchors, pile mooring, and helical with elastic rode mooring systems
  • Proven cable connector system for endless dock lengths

Industrial Docking Systems

A complete line of heavy duty, all-concrete single-cast designs with an EPS styrofoam core and protected steel reinforcements. The heavy mass and thick walled concrete structures offer stability and longevity. They are low maintenance and accommodate large vessels and environmental forces, including impacts, high winds, waves and harsh winter ice. From tenders, to large tugs fishing vessels and ferries, we have an unsinkable solution.

Technical Considerations

  • Freeboard heights from 10” to 54”
  • Widths from 8′ to 32’
  • Ferry landings, commercial berthing, municipal docking for fire and police crafts
  • Heavy loading capacity for forklifts, vehicles, structures
  • A thick, reinforced concrete deck surface accommodates internal utilities, lighting, small cranes, mooring bollards, and large capacity equipment
  • Can accept fender systems of all sizes and impact rating
  • Anchoring systems include chain and bottom anchors, pile mooring, and helical with elastic rode mooring systems
  • Customizable lengths up to 100’ single cast units with angle joints
  • Proven cable connector system for endless dock lengths

Floating Breakwaters

A complete line of heavy duty, all concrete, single-cast floating breakwaters with EPS styrofoam core and protected steel reinforcement. The heavy mass and thick walled concrete structures offer stability and longevity, while attenuating waves and providing a calm protected harbor area. They are low maintenance and accommodate large vessels and environmental forces, including impacts, high winds, strong waves and harsh winter ice. The floating breakwater systems are based on SF Marina’s Industrial docking systems, enhanced with greater depth and mass to stop wave energy. Floating breakwaters double as marina and industrial docking systems.

Technical Considerations

  • Freeboard heights from 24′ to 30′
  • Widths from 10ft to 32’
  • Draft depth from 4′ to 9′
  • A thick reinforced concrete deck surface accommodates internal utilities, lighting, small cranes, mooring bollards and large capacity equipment
  • Anchoring systems include chain and bottom anchors, pile mooring, and helical with elastic rode mooring systems

    Our yacht club replaced three 16′ X 66″ concrete floats over the last two years with SF Marina products.
    They were easy to deal with. helpful with ground tackle concerns, competitive . and timely.
    We are very happy with the design and the finished product.
    I do not hesitate to recommend them and we would certainly use them again when need arises.

    Mason from SF was great to work with. He is very knowledgeable on the breakwater system we installed and took his time with placement based on our individual location and needs of our marina. I would recommend Mason and SF for your marina needs.

    SF Marine built and installed two docks for our yacht club, the Newport Yacht Club in Newport, RI. The first was 237′ long and was a wave attenuating floating dock the second was 94′ long and was of the same design and attached to the first. Both of them have performed beyond our expectations. All of the users of the dock, both members and quests, comment on how much they like them regularly. The low maintenance of the docks is an added plus. It was very easy to work with SF Marine during the planning, delivery and installation of the both docks. Our only regret is that we cannot replace all of our wood floating dock system with SF’s products, at least not yet.
