Extra berths at The Boat Works

A Stage 5 expansion of additional sheds and hardstand at The Boat Works on the Australian Gold Coast has been completed in time for the new season.

The next phase will comprise work on the waterfront, which includes new marina berths at a Super Elite concrete pontoon system manufactured and installed by Superior Jetties.
Andy Vollmer, Superior Jetties project manager, outlined the work: “We have added nearly 300 linear metres [980ft] of new berthing, and we have given the rest of the marina a subtle facelift with new pile caps for a refresh and to help incoming captains and owners identify marina arms by colour as they approach,” he explained.
All in-water service berths are reinforced with ProFender premium dock protection for the safety of every vessel.
The Boat Works’ owner, Tony Longhurst, said the new sheds and hardstand, teamed with the 18 new berths, will be immediately snapped up by visiting boats. “There is a huge demand to accommodate more boats undercover and our 70 sheds have reached capacity,” he confirmed. “We are proud to offer new opportunities for growth for all our marine service providers and partners within our two world-class yards. Their success in turn enhances our operational efficiency.”
The Boat Works marina boasts full-service berths for vessels of all sizes, including wide-bodied multihulls of any beam. It welcomes up to 30 superyachts to 65m (213ft) in length, with the benefit of extra wide pontoons for in-water service works and provisioning. Superior Jetties also installed 50 superyacht berths in the superyacht basin just three years ago.
Gold Coast Waterways Authority (GCWA) has committed to continual dredging works within the Coomera River to ensure a 3.5m (11ft 6in) depth at low tide.
The Longhurst family is investing heavily in infrastructure ahead of a predicted influx of yachts in the lead up to the 2032 Olympic Games and the rising demand for berths 20m (66ft) and above.
“The Boat Works is an accredited Superyacht Ready marina and holds 5 Gold Anchor certification,” stated general manager, Shane Subichin. “We have evolved to provide two world class boatyards – marina and superyacht yards, with high-end facilities and new lifting equipment, while maintaining our focus on customer service,” he added.
