Located in the heart of Brooklyn Bridge Park between Piers 4 & 5, ONE°15 Brooklyn Marina, the newest marina in New York City, is currently under construction with new docks being anchored and a state-of-the-art wave attenuation system now in place. Construction will be completed this fall, with a grand opening anticipated for spring 2016.  A joint venture between majority owner SUTL Group and Edgewater Resources, ONE°15 Brooklyn Marina offers unparalleled water access to the local Brooklyn community, New Yorkers, and boating enthusiasts from around the globe.

With the calmest waters in all of New York Harbor thanks to its advanced technology and design, the marina will accommodate boats ranging from 16’ to 250’ for seasonal docking at facilities of the highest quality, a Sail Club & School and a members-only Harbor Club.  Extensive input from local waterfront experts, residents and not-for-profit groups, all echoed the desire for public access which became the most important design consideration. In fact, the Marina will dedicate two percent of marina revenue toward exceptional community programming that will make boating and kayaking available to residents of all ages, abilities, and incomes.

The new marina will be the first to be built in New York Harbor in the last 20 years. Joint venture partners SUTL Group, the Singapore-based, owner and operator of the award-winning ONE°15 Marina Club Singapore and Edgewater Resources, a leading marine design and engineering firm, were selected by Brooklyn Bridge Park in 2013 to develop and operate the marina because of their commitment to the Park’s mission of making the waterfront more accessible to the public.

The marina’s Community Dock will be one of the largest docks in New York City, making up nearly 25% of the square footage of dock space at ONE°15 Brooklyn Marina once completed. The Community Dock will offer free and affordable community boating, as well as a world-class facility where these programs can thrive.  Free and affordable boating experiences will be coordinated by the marina with its community partners, and a full program is in development.

In New York City we are surrounded by water yet there are so few opportunities to interact with the harbor,” said Regina Myer, President of Brooklyn Bridge Park. “This marina with its robust free and low cost programming, makes the waterfront accessible in new ways to even more New Yorkers and puts Brooklyn on the map for the global boating community.”
