Marina Construction & Lumber Supply

The marina construction division at Matheus Lumber has been a specialty area of expertise for over thirty years. Matheus Lumber provides all construction materials and engineering for large timber floating docks or marinas. 

Marinas can be described as salt water boat and seaplane moorage infrastructure, built from preservative treated timber products and designed by marine engineers. The duration of contract for a marina construction project depends on the size and lasts anywhere from 3 months to one year averaging between $10,000 to $2.5 Million dollars.

Typical sizes of structures for finger floats range from 3’ x 20’ to 6 ‘x 60’ and main floats range from 8’ x 20’ to 12’ x 60’. Matheus Lumber excels in this division because of our ability to fabricate and assemble all of the components into barge ready modules for shipment to Alaska, or Washington.

Matheus Lumber often provides quotes utilizing package deals where all of the components for a particular job are furnished by Matheus Lumber. This allows contractors to use a “one stop shop” method for all their marina construction.
