Baltimore Downtown Sailing Center Renovated

posted in: Chesapeake Bay News | 0

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Boating Services and Downtown Sailing Center in Baltimore held a ribbon cutting on September 24 to officially open the newly renovated marina located in the Inner Harbor.

The project included concrete piers which were recycled from the Inner Harbor Marina to enhance the existing marine facility. The newly configured dock layout will accommodate a larger number of people, allows for easier wheelchair access onto vessels, and provides more space for larger boats. The entire facility is designed to meet ADA requirements.

The total project cost was $300,000. State grants were provided through the DNR Waterway Improvement Fund. Revenue for the Fund comes from the one-time 5 percent excise tax paid when a boat is titled in the State of Maryland.
