Coos Bay, Ore. - The Oregon International Port of Coos Bay (Port) is pleased to welcome Brandon Collura as the new Harbormaster overseeing the Charleston Marina Complex.  Brandon moved to the area from Fort Lauderdale, FL, where he previously worked as the director of a marina for the last seven years, managing daily operations. Prior to that, he was a vessel captain for the Water Safety Patrol in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.  Brandon attended and graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee where he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in political science and history. “I’m looking forward to my new role at the Port of Coos Bay, and excited for the opportunity to make a positive impact in the Charleston community,” said Collura. 

The Charleston Harbormaster role includes managing a staff of 18 in the security and maintenance departments at the marina, as well as oversight of operations and projects at the marina, RV park, shipyard, ice plant, and of commercial lease agreements. 

The Charleston Marina Complex is an active fishing village with over 400 moorage slips for recreational and commercial vessels, serving as the third largest fishing hub in the State of Oregon.  The marina houses a six-lane launch ramp, multiple restaurants and business, over 100 full-service RV camping sites, and a bustling shipyard for the building, repairing, and storage of vessels.

The Port will be hosting a community meet and greet for Brandon at the Charleston RV park meeting room on July 17th from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. prior to the Charleston Advisory Committee meeting. The Port welcomes Brandon to the staff and Charleston community!
