A new super era on the Gold Coast
Overview rendering of the North Yard superyacht complex, scheduled to open in 2020.
Superyachts, pyrotechnics, the Gold Coast Australia mayor Tom Tate, and various dignitaries, VIPs, marine industry customers and media combined in a heady mix on 3rd May to commemorate the unveiling of stage one of The Boat Works’ north precinct, the largest superyacht marina and shipyard in the southern hemisphere. The project, which represents AU$100 million in private investment in Gold Coast infrastructure, is scheduled to open in early 2020 and effectively double the total facility to 52 acres (21ha).
Owner and CEO, Tony Longhurst, is also aiming to build “the greenest and cleanest” shipyard and marina in the world. Plans include landscaped bio gardens, a solar panel array and sophisticated water recycling systems that will ensure no air or waterborne pollution enters the Coomera River or surrounding soil.
