The Wrightsville Beach Marina & Yacht Club Had a $4 million Upgrade
WILMINGTON, NC – May 19, 2017 – Epproach Communications, the leading provider of scalable, high-capacity WiFi and data networks, is providing managed WiFi services to the Wrightsville Beach Marina and Yacht Club, an upscale marina located in Wrightsville Beach, NC.
“WiFi and internet is probably the #1 utility service that’s most often demanded in this market,” Sam Clary, dockmaster of Wrightsville Marina, said. “We were outfitted with poor WiFi service in the past and it was really embarrassing for us. Epproach has really helped us to improve our reputation in that aspect.”
After more than three years of renovations and a $4 million upgrade, Wrightsville Beach Marina introduced its fast and reliable WiFi service solution inside it’s new and improved upgrade to members in a grand opening ceremony on May 6, 2017. The Epproach team installed very discreet AP’s on the main docks to cover both common areas and the individual docks themselves. The marina was a fiber-fed site that allowed for high-speed internet service with large amounts of bandwidth capabilities. Members are able to securely connect to high-speed wireless internet using a state-of-the-art managed WiFi system that is monitored and supported 24/7/365. This system gives residents the ability to connect securely across multiple devices and stream video in an instant.
The major upgrade is already attracting mega-yachts to the marina, including a 130-foot Westport yacht. “It’s world class,” said Adam Meyer, director of marine insurance for Wells Insurance. “It will attract more mega yachts.”
Clary said he has been very pleased with Epproach’s work so far. “The Epproach team has done a super job working through all of the issues that come with a marina,” Clary said. “The tech support has been spot on, refining and perfecting the system.”
Marty Hollingsworth, CEO of Epproach Communications, said that he is excited to provide WiFi and internet services to a new major destination site for Wrightsville Beach. “The new marina is a luxurious, upscale location and very close to our headquarters in Wilmington,” Hollingsworth said. “It’s been a pleasure to serve the members and guests of the marina with our proven outdoor WiFi solution.”
