We’re proud to say that we’ve come a long way. Located just 20 minutes’ drive south of Hobart, the redevelopment of Margate Marina represents one of Tasmania’s biggest recreational boating investments.
The Marina is a significant new addition to Hobart’s boating infrastructure with several advantages. These combine to produce a unique marina offering for Tasmania; a dual fuel pontoon, dedicated berths for superyachts (30m to 40m), CCTV, an office open 7 days and free pump-out facilities (open early 2020).
Redevelopment construction started mid 2018 and our first 50 berths were completed in October that year when our first customers moved in. Construction continued and we now have 123 berths, progressing towards 300.
The 300m wave attenuator has been custom engineered for the site conditions and includes a 60m right angled section heading westwards. This, coupled with the deep protective baffles, provides a safe haven in strong winds.
All berths are floating pontoons with water and metered power to each berth. (All berths have 15 Amp supply. In addition, the 20m berths have 32 Amp 3 phase connections and the 25m, 30m and 40m berths have 63 Amp 3 phase outlets.) All berths have at least 3 side cleats and a centred cleat between berths.

What customers are saying
“Thanks for the expert service when Andromeda was hauled recently at Margate Marina. I needed the boat supported clear of the ground to allow work under the keel. This was possible with your hydraulic trailer and the hull was well propped and supported so that the 50 knot gusts during the time on the hard were not a problem. A very satisfactory experience.Roger Locke
“The service provided by Margate Marina is as good as I could want. You are prompt, friendly and competent. Having used both the DSS and Port Cygnet each for about 10 years your service compares favourably. I will continue to use your facility and look forward to further developments in the services available. The yard system and haul out trailer work well together. The stands hold my yacht in a convenient position to work on. It was interesting to hear about the marina development. We could be interested in occupying a berth when the development opens.”Andrew, Mollycoddle (11 metres, Adams design)
“I would like to pass on my sincere thanks to Justin and his team at Margate Marina for their support and positive attitude whilst having my boat on the slip for 2 weeks recently. I was really impressed with the new trailer and hardstands purchased recently, a real positive moving forward for your business. I highly recommend you guys to anyone looking at slipping their boats and I believe in time to come once the word is out your business will develop and grow as it should. Keep up the good work and once again thank you and we'll see you on the next slip.Dennis Lord – Morphik
“Just a short message of appreciation of your team at the Margate Marina, Justin, Emily, Gary & Dion. This last slip involved a lot of time and effort and at every stage of the work everyone was extremely helpful and co-operative. Could you please pass on my thanks and appreciation to all.”Colin Evans
