IGY Marinas Complete $25 Million Renovation in St. Petersburg, Florida

Posted by on Oct 17, 2018

The $25 million renovation at Maximo Marina in St. Petersburg, Florida has been completed after redevelopment and renovations by IGY Marinas. On behalf of the owner, Bixby Bridge Capital, IGY Marinas oversaw the project including all aspects of design, redevelopment and operations since 2015.

Maximo Marina is the largest covered boat slip marina in Florida, containing covered wet slips for vessels up to 100 feet in length. Maximo Marina now features a variety of world-class amenities including floating concrete docks, a state of the art fuel dock, boat lifts, complimentary WiFi, renovated support facilities, and the opening of the new Getaway Maximo Restaurant, the largest restaurant opening in south St. Petersburg in over a decade.

“This was a complex project from a design, permitting and execution standpoint. The marina was over 50 years old and IGY took great care to ensure that this marina was redesigned to be responsive to the market and the evolving sizes of vessels both for today and for the next 50 years. IGY worked with us to ensure that all the critical customer touchpoints were addressed and that the uniqueness of the marina was maintained, all while making sound cost-benefit recommendations. IGY was able to institute a phasing plan that allowed a portion of the marina to stay open throughout construction which was very important to our customers. We are very pleased that IGY and ORION were able to deliver this project on time and under budget,” said Steven Fass, a principal at Bixby.

With the complete renovation, Maximo Marina can welcome over 200 vessels in wet slips, where 142 are covered and 58 have lifts. The marina can also accommodate an additional 88 vessels with inside storage racks, and 200 in outside dry storage racks.

IGY Marinas continues to be well-known in the industry as a leading marina operator, redeveloping and operating marinas around the world.
