After a little over eighteen months since the devastating damage from Hurricane Michael, there’s new hope for the future of Port St. Joe’s beloved marina. On Thursday, April 30th, St. Joe Company-Owners and Developers of the marina, announced new plans for the marina’s future. The first phase of construction will be for the new dry boat storage facility that will be 63,200 square feet with 252 dry boat slips that will be available for lease. The dry boat storage will be able to accommodate boats up to 45 feet in length. Construction on the dry boat storage is set for May with a goal to be complete before the end of 2020. Planning and permitting is also underway for construction of about 48 wet slips, and marina store, and other amenities. St. Joe Company has also mentioned a prospective plan to construct a small hotel nearby–more on that to come at a later date. Residents and travelers have long awaited the reconstruction of the St. Joe Marina and it will be a welcome amenity back to the historic coastal town.
