Transient Dock Construction Begins

Installation of Transient Docks adjacent to Doc Ford’s restaurant begins 2021-1-28

The project is in response to community demand for more transient docking opportunities in concert with continued revitalization efforts of the downtown waterfront corridor. The proposed transient

dock will accommodate up to 25 recreational transient vessels in a combination of slip and side tie docking arrangements; this combination allows for flexibility in both length and width of the visiting vessels. The dock configuration comprises 14 30-foot long slips and a 200-foot long dock with berthing on both sides. The dock site is in the City’s Downtown Historic District adjacent to the St. Petersburg Pier – a multi-use venue first established in the early 1900s – in the Central Yacht Basin of the City’s Municipal Marina.
