SF Marina has a hundred years of marina design experience within the company and will guide youthrough the process of building, adding on to or refurbishing a marina. We call the combined experience and knowledge base S.A.F.E. Marina system™. S.A.F.E. stands for Secure, Adapted, Flexible and Environmentally friendly; this sums up the experience and knowledge gained during the last century by SF Marina and is included in all our projects..
Based on a location and base criteria such as number of berths and size of boats SF Marina can conceptualize the layout of the marina in an early stage helping you to avoid the most common mistakes, often leading to a better marina at a lower cost already at this early stage in the process.

In an ideal world wave analysis, wind analysis, bathymetry, bottom conditions, fetch, currents and tide information is available, but SF Marina will calculate and design a marina using only the available data.
Based on Wave height, period, fetch, direction and historical 50-year and 100-year conditions, SF Marina will calculate the exact sizes and models of floating breakwaters and calculate remaining wave heights inside the marina.
Vessel size and weight information together with wind data is the basis for dimensioning of the inner pontoons to optimize the layout of the marina.
The combined data available will form the basis for calculating the best anchoring solution for the marina. Piles, chains or Seaflex, SF Marina will always select the best possible option.
All calculations are based on PIANC and national recommendations, combined with our vast experience. This experience has been carefully built into our advanced calculation models over a period of many years and is continuously fine-tuned as a result of product development and real-life experience of SF Marina pontoons having been used for almost 50 years in real life.
The size and type of breakwaters and pontoons selected will be carefully combined with dimensioning of a suitable anchoring and connector solution, designed to do the job for 50 years or more.
Our vast experience in Marinas, yachts and boats ensures that the marina will have correct berth sizes with fingers or mooring. All the accessories, such as water, electricity, sewage, bollards, cleats etc. will be correctly dimensioned and reinforced. SF Marinas’ attention to detail stretches all the way to having carefully designed and selected the correct accessories with a quality and life length to match its pontoons and breakwaters.
SF Marina builds according to the highest quality standards and follows Eurocode in its concrete designs. With its main factory in Sweden SF Marina also has, since many years, a number of carefully selected production facilities around the world, building to the same high-quality standards as the main factory.
Having built a unique network of highly expe-
rienced marina representatives around the world for a number of years, SF Marina can
offer a unique knowledge base and full installation
capabilities around the world. We will guide you through the whole installation process to provide you with a world class marina.
