Design 2731 - Manhattan Sailing Club Dinghy Dock


If you recall, back in 2001-2002 we designed the floating clubhouse for the Manhattan Sailing Club, the Honorable William Wall, design #2686. That's her way out in the distance next to Ellis Island in the image below.


The dinghy dock was to be moored in the shallow flats behind and southwest of the Statue of Liberty. The barge was designed to accommodate 7 Lasers, 6 Sunfishes and 12 Optimists for the school's dinghy program. The boats would be stored on carpeted ramps. The floating facility's design also included toilet rooms and an observation deck. In the end the school purchased an existing barge due to cost constraints.

You can learn more about the floating clubhouse and the dinghy sailing program by visiting Manhattan Sailing Club's website by clicking here. Simply follow the links to "Clubhouse" and "Junior Sailing."
