Next stage of development complete… a safe haven with unique additions

By | Marina News, Marina Upgrade | No Comments

The next stage of Margate Marina’s redevelopment has just been completed with the construction of an extra 73 floating berths and a 150m extension of the attenuator/breakwater. The Marina now accommodates 123 new berths with more to come. The attenuator/breakwater extension now includes a 90m section to the south and a right-angled 60m westward arm which provides additional protection to the Marina…offering a safe haven for all conditions.

Margate Marina is now the only marina in Tasmania providing dedicated individual 30m to 40m berths, catering for larger vessels including superyachts. It also has a dual fuel pontoon open 24 hours a day for members and visitors with very competitive pricing. Margate Marina will soon be the only marina outside the Derwent River area offering pump-out facilities.

The additional 73 berths include individual 10m, 12m, 15m, 18m, 20m, 25m, 30m, 35m and 40m berths…arguably the largest range of berth sizes of any marina in Tasmania. All berths have been especially engineered for the site conditions and are complete with power and water. Construction has been under the management of Pacific Pontoon & Pier.

The redevelopment of Margate Marina represents one of Tasmania’s biggest recreational boating investments, creating extra employment and additional opportunities for many businesses. It is a significant new addition to Hobart’s boating infrastructure with several unique points of difference…a dual fuel pontoon, berths to 40m and pump-out facilities.

Designed and built to Australian standards, the Marina has very generous spacing between berth rows, enabling greater manoeuvrability for all vessels. On land, there’s a large hardstand area, slipway and boat ramp with easy access for marine trades. The Marina’s specialised haul-out equipment caters for vessels up to 60ft (including catamarans) and 23 tonnes. Being developed adjacent to the slipping area will be a massive 650 sq metre marine trades building, a café and chandlery.

The Marina has gated security with CCTV monitoring and the Marina office is open 7 days a week. Liveaboards are welcome and their facilities include keyed access to shower and W.C. amenities.

Demand for the additional berths has been strong, driven by the Marina’s range of facilities and its immediate access to the famous cruising waters of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel.

The next stage of the redevelopment begins!

The next stage of construction has started with the 150m major extension of the attenuator/breakwater and an additional 73 berths.

The attenuator/breakwater extension includes a 90m southern extension and a right-angled 60m westward arm that will provide increased berthing security to the Marina. The new floating 73 berths will include individual 10m, 12m, 15m, 18m, 20m, 25m, 30m, 35m and 40m berths…arguably the largest range of berth sizes of any marina in Tasmania and the only marina in Tassie providing dedicated individual pens for larger vessels including superyachts.

The first stage of the redeveloped Margate Marina at Baretta is now open for business.

Sail and power boat customers are now moving in to the initial 50 berths which are complete with power, water and CCTV monitoring…ideal timing for the summer boating season.

The completion of this first stage provides secure berthing facilities vessels from 10m to 25m in length, protected by a custom engineered wave attenuator/breakwater. Construction work is being undertaken by Pacific Pontoon & Pier and will continue as the Marina expands to its potential of 300 berths.

The redevelopment of Margate Marina represents one of Tasmania’s biggest recreational boating investments, creating extra employment and additional opportunities for many businesses. It is a significant new addition to Hobart’s boating infrastructure.

The redevelopment is a welcome new facility given the scarcity of vacant marina berths in Hobart. The boating community has already shown strong demand with limited berths now available. This demand is driven by the range of facilities and easy access to the famous cruising waters of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel and surrounding areas.

The completed berths have very generous spacing between berth rows, enabling greater manoeuvrability for all vessels. On land there’s a large hardstand area, slipway and boat ramp with easy access for marine trades. The Marina’s specialised haul-out equipment caters for vessels up to 60ft (including catamarans) and 47 tonnes.

Unique facilities currently being completed include a pump-out service and a floating dual fuel pontoon depot (diesel and petrol). Also, being developed on land will be a café, chandlery and a new amenities building which will include shower and laundry facilities.

The Marina has gated security with CCTV monitoring and the Marina office is open 7 days a week.

Unique facilities being developed will include a pump-out service, a dual fuel pontoon depot (diesel and petrol), haul-out equipment for vessels up to 60ft (including catamarans) as well as providing greater manoeuvrability for boats between berth rows.
