Legendary Marina and Yacht Club, the premier luxury marina destination in Gulf Shores, Alabama is thrilled to announce its latest groundbreaking feature- the introduction of state-of-the-art forklift launch bridges, an unprecedented addition that sets it apart from any other marina in the United States.

The marina’s commitment to offering unparalleled services and experiences has led to the development of these cutting-edge launch bridges, which represent a breakthrough in marine technology. Designed to accommodate boats up to 50 feet in length, the bridges will be capable of supporting the weight of a forklift while simultaneously bearing a pavement loading equivalent to that of a large jet airliner. This engineering marvel ensures the safe and efficient launch of vessels, making boat owners’ experiences both seamless and enjoyable.

What truly sets Legendary Marina & Yacht Club apart is the innovative design of these forklift launch bridges, allowing pedestrians to stroll beneath them while boats are expertly loaded into the water. This unique vantage point will offer marina visitors and enthusiasts an unforgettable perspective on the intricate processes involved in launching and retrieving boats. It’s a sight that perfectly captures the essence of luxury, sophistication, and ingenuity.

“We’re thrilled to be pioneering this incredible advancement in marina technology,” said Rodney Chamberlain, Legendary Marina VP of Marina Development. “Our commitment to providing our patrons with an unmatched experience has driven us to explore new horizons. These launch bridges are a testament to that dedication.”

Construction on these remarkable bridges has off

icially commenced, with an estimated completion timeline of approximately 16 weeks. Each bridge will span a width of 18 feet and a length of 43 feet, showcasing the impressive scale of this endeavor. Comprising four prestressed concrete beams, these bridges are engineered to perfection, ensuring both stability and endurance for years to come.

The marina’s vision of enhancing the boating experience extends beyond functionality- it’s about creating a destination where luxury meets innovation. The forklift launch bridges, in conjunction with the marina’s ongoing barn progression, exemplify this commitment and embody the essence of Legendary Marina & Yacht Club’s mission.
