A Tale of Two Boats – The Wheeler 38

“ONE°15 is a contemporary marina for contemporary boaters. There’s a reason it’s the first marina built in New York City since Ali lost to Frazier at Madison Square Garden, and like a unified audience at a sold-out event, it has to do with the phenomenon of increasingly larger waves. To handle the steady influx of waterborne traffic around the city, ONE°15 makes use of the latest in wave-attenuating technology: three steel barges totaling 515 feet. Their combined effect reduces wave action on idle boats by 70 percent. Without it, the marina would not exist.”
