The fenders are being spaced to ensure that most of the bulkhead has fendering. The project should be completed by March 2021. The Port Authority will continue to repair deteriorated fendering at all its marine facilities territorywide.

The Waterfront in Charlotte Amalie Harbor encompasses 3,200 feet of bulkhead space that runs parallel to the shopping district on St. Thomas. It is also located adjacent to banks, restaurants and other venues that make it an ideal berthing location.

The Waterfront can accommodate yachts and other luxury vessels, mini-cruise ships, cruise ship tenders and other small vessels. The draft alongside the Waterfront ranges from four feet to 14 feet.

Provisioning, water delivery and fueling are allowed along the bulkhead with permission from the Port Authority.
