Pelican Waters breaks ground on Queensland marina

AUSTRALIA: Waterfront developer Pelican Waters has broken ground on a 126-berth marina on the Caloundra Coast, Queensland. When complete, it will be the only marina on the Sunshine Coast to provide a mix of both wet berths and drystack spaces.

Local marine construction company, The Jetty Specialist, is constructing the marina using concrete floating pontoons and stainless steel fixings for vessels up to 15m (49ft). All berths will offer power and water.
Construction is also set to begin on associated marina facilities, including a fuel wharf providing unleaded and diesel fuels, a pump-out station, en suite amenities and a client lounge.
The developers have engaged fellow Sunshine Coast company QTM Enterprises for the associated landside marina works, which comprises a 160-boat drystack for boats up to 12m (39ft) within a fully functioning boatyard. This will offer services including shipwright repairs and maintenance, marine mechanics and electrics, canvassing and trimming, chandlery and more.
A brewery, medical businesses, waterfront dining, boutique cafés, fitness studios and a beauty salon will sit within a marina village lifestyle precinct.
The developer expects to complete construction of both the marina and the boatyard by the end of the year.
