Salvage - North Fort Myers

Paradise Marina, Vessel Salvage, Dock Repairs
North Fort Myers, FL

Kelly Brothers contracted with multiple insurance companies to salvage, store, demo, and dispose of four vessels, ranging in size from 38’ to 43’. The vessels were completely destroyed by fire, which started aboard one and quickly spread to neighboring vessels all moored at the Paradise Marina. Utilizing company-owned equipment, each vessel was rigged by certified divers and riggers then placed on the barge for transport back to KBI’s beach yard. Kelly Brothers coordinated site visits and inspections with the Owners and each insurance company’s designated surveyor prior to demolition and proper disposal. Kelly Brothers was also contracted by the Owner of the Paradise Marina to complete the fixed dock and fender pile repairs caused by the fire.

What our Clients are Saying

Kelly Brothers was commissioned to construct a meandering 1,200 lineal foot elevated boardwalk, through our environmentally sensitive wetland. Our goal was to construct an elevated boardwalk and shell paths through this coastal habitat while respecting the mangrove forest, salt marsh, as well as the oak hammock uplands. The chorography technique Kelly Brothers created was truly impressive. As a result, there was no disturbance or destruction to any part of the surrounding area.

What our Clients are Saying

KBI was very cooperative in developing solutions to an unforeseen subsurface condition that occurred during installation of the piling. They negotiated the extra
work compensation fairly, and they proceeded with the work with no delays to the project.

What our Clients are Saying

Congratulations to the team for a great project. The KBI crew was outstanding. It is rare that a crew completes a dredge project without the need for a punch list at the end.  Thanks to Jake, Travis, and especially to Raul and his crew.
