THE MEDIA VOICE OF THE GLOBAL MARINA INDUSTRY

Upgrade approved for Jones Bay

AUSTRALIA: Sydney’s Heritage-listed Jones Bay Marina has received council approval for an upgrade. The move will address the shortage of marina berths for large vessels in Sydney Harbour and see significant capital poured into the harbourside marina over the course of the year.

The unanimous decision by Council and the local planning panel has been welcomed by marina owners Toga Group and management alike, and will see a raft of essential upgrades including the installation of new floating pontoon berths and a custom-designed floating office; improvements to power and water supply; and essential upgrades to the marina’s amenities block and changing rooms.
Jones Bay Marina’s general manager, Nairn Johnston CMM, said the Australian superyacht industry was currently in a growth period and the upgrades couldn’t have come at a better time.
“As many will know, getting planning approval on Sydney Harbour is a long and laborious process,” he said. “So this news is a great outcome for both local and visiting yachts to Sydney Harbour; for the large superyachts who frequent it due to its proximity to the CBD; and for all the trades, businesses and suppliers that support and service the vessels that berth at our marina.”
Johnston said the Jones Bay Marina team couldn’t have achieved this favourable result without input from a range of stakeholders, including Ethos Urban and Copley Marine.
