Marlin Bay Yacht Club
Marathon, Florida Keys
2020 Muse Design Award Winning Project, Gold Award
A resort community reminiscent of a fishing village with Dutch Caribbean architecture overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. The 8.4-acre site is located in the island community of Marathon, a quaint tropical town in the Florida Keys. The site plan includes 85 luxury single family homes, a marina and a clubhouse.
The community is organized around a common area with spectacular bay and marina views. This area integrates a two-story clubhouse, a large beach-entry lagoon pool, spa and a tiki bar into the social hub of this sea-side village.
115-boat slip marina completes the composition. Grand stairs descend from the pool deck and connect to the marina promenade. The promenade leads to the observation tower, where guests and residents can view the magnificent sunsets that the Florida Keys are known for. The overall landscape theme is designed to complement the Dutch Caribbean architecture with lush tropical sea-side vegetation.
