GCCM to double in size
AUSTRALIA: Gold Coast City Marina & Shipyard (GCCM) is embarking on a stage two development project using an adjacent 20ha (49 acre) site it purchased some years ago. When complete, at a cost of over AU$100 million, the extensive site will be in an even stronger position to handle larger vessels.
“This project is an exciting coup for the Gold Coast’s ever-expanding marine industry, which is developing a global reputation for being a leading destination for marine refit and repair within the Asia Pacific region,” said GCCM CEO Trenton Gay.
“Submissions for this site have been lodged with authorities and, once approvals are in place, construction for the first stage will be imminent,” he continued. “Once completed, GCCM will be able to further accommodate the growing size of our domestic fleet and those coming to the South Pacific region, including superyachts, wide beam catamarans and sailing yachts, thanks to ground breaking new facilities including a 1,000 tonne capacity lift and undercover refit and repair factories.”
GCCM’s refit and repair facility is growing exponentially each year, with in excess of 80 marine businesses on site employing over 700 of Australia’s most highly skilled marine contractors and servicing vessels ranging from tinnies to superyachts in excess of 70m (230ft).
