New Restrooms For Guests at Gig Harbor Marina

Two beautiful new restrooms — complete with must-have showers for boaters — are now finished and awaiting guests at Gig Harbor Marina & Boatyard.

The gorgeous new men’s and women’s restrooms are up and running just in time for the upcoming boating season.  The facilities will be a welcome improvement for marina tenants, transient moorage guests and for attendees of events at The Club @ the Boatyard. The clean, well-lighted restrooms each include two showers, which the marina’s old restrooms didn’t have. That addition alone is sure to be a hit with boaters who come to moor at Gig Harbor Marina & Boatyard.

The downtown marina has had requests for showers for years, say marina managers. That need has been answered with perfect timing as boaters gear up for the summer cruising season.

ADA-compliant showers

Men’s and women’s restrooms each have two beautiful new showers.

“Showers are a big thing with boaters,” said Ron Roark, owner and general manager of Gig Harbor Marina & Boatyard last fall when restroom construction was getting under way. “You can’t be in the business of guest moorage without showers.”

The crisp, appealing restrooms are in keeping with Roark’s goal of creating a “first cabin” experience for guests who visit Gig Harbor Marina & Boatyard.  The restrooms feature large, horizontal slate-gray textured tile part way up the walls, accented by soothing sea foam-blue above. Soft sandy tones in the river rock floor tile flow throughout the restrooms for just the right beachy feel in the stylish waterfront facilities.

Attractive fixtures finish off the two ADA-compliant restrooms. The facilities meet Americans with Disabilities Act standards for accessible design with roll-in showers, grab bars, ample space and other features. The women’s restroom has three toilet stalls, two showers and a two-sink vanity. The men’s room has the same features along with two urinals, and both restrooms are fire protected with a sprinkler system.
