Project/owner: Privateer Yacht Club.
Location: 4713 Privateer Road, Hixson.
Architect: Rob Fowler, River Street Architecture.
Square footage: 5,745 square feet, including a large wrap-around covered deck.
Contractor: Mike Kuebler, Embark Project Services, LLC.
Scope: The existing clubhouse, built in the 1950s, was demolished, making way for a new facility. The new clubhouse is larger, features aesthetic and practical improvements, up-to-date technology and increased usability.
History: Privateer Yacht Club was founded in July 1940 to "promote sailing in the Chickamauga Lake area and particularly in Chattanooga" and to build a marine tradition for "The Great Lakes of the South," according to its website.
Future: Privateer's new facility will enable the club to provide better support for teaching, sailing and year-round racing. Next month, the club will open racing events to guests. Membership is available to guests who engage in club events and have sponsorships from current members.
Timeline: The new club house is expected to be completed by June.
