New superyacht marina in Brooklyn Bridge Park in New York

A new marina, which will be able to accommodate superyachts, is under construction in the heart of Brooklyn Bridge Park in New York. ONE°15 Brooklyn Marina will have more than one hundred berths and will be able to accommodate yachts up to 75 metres.

ONE°15 Brooklyn is the first new marina built in New York Harbor in 20 years. Construction is due to be completed this autumn with a formal opening planned for spring 2016.

The project is a joint venture between majority owner SUTL Group and Edgewater Resources. The SUTL group is behind the ONE°15 Marina brand, which includes the ONE°15 Marina Club Singapore.

“As we looked to expand the brand into international destinations we identified the perfect opportunity in Brooklyn with the vibrant, lush public spaces of Brooklyn Bridge Park, Manhattan skyline backdrop and open water,” said Arthur Tay, chairman of SUTL Group.

“Boaters and water enthusiasts from around the corner and around the world will feel at home at ONE°15 Brooklyn Marina.”

It is hoped that the development will make the waterfront more accessible and enhance the local area. A community dock will make up 25 per cent of the square footage of dock space and offer free and affordable community boating opportunities. A sailing and kayak school will be part of the new marina to allow people of all ages, abilities and incomes to enjoy the water.

“In New York City, we are surrounded by water yet there are so few opportunities to interact with the harbour,” said Regina Myer, president of Brooklyn Bridge Park. “This marina with its robust free and low cost programming, makes the waterfront accessible in new ways to even more New Yorkers and puts Brooklyn on the map for the global boating community.”

This marina is one of a number of developments on America’s east coast. A new superyacht marina in Miami is due to open this December and a $12 million superyacht marina is planned for Dania Beach, Florida.
