Two of Queensland’s renowned superyacht destinations, which have invested a combined $120-million-plus in superyacht marine infrastructure, have joined forces, consolidating the close relationship between the two riverfront facilities.
The Boat Works will be extending to Sanctuary Cove berth holders access to special offers and incentives with the marine trades – from antifouling, inspections, servicing and shed/hardstand hire to evaluations and vessel management.
The synergies between the two riverfront facilities are numerous. Both provide five-star resort facilities and concierge-style services for boat owners, whether visiting from local or international waters, or permanent berth holders.
Following Sanctuary Cove Marina’s $12 million redevelopment and the February opening of The Boat Works’ $100 million superyacht yard, vessel owners will be provided with a one-stop-shop for a first-class marine experience.
The superyacht facilities align with the Queensland Government’s Superyacht strategy, aimed at building South East Queensland as the key superyacht hub in the Asia-Pacific region.
Sanctuary Cove provides long-term berthing options accommodating 300 vessels, with a dedicated long-term superyacht berth option for vessels over 24 metres and up to 65 metres in length.
The Boat Works occupies 55 acres, comprising world-class shipyard facilities and amenities servicing boats from 5–50 metres, the Gold Coast’s largest lift at 300 tonnes, plus the complete array of services and qualified marine trades and services along with onsite based chandlery and boating supplies.
The Boat Works will provide valet and concierge collection of the boats from Sanctuary Cove marina direct to The Boat Works for their annual maintenance and routine log-book checks.
The Boat Works trades specialise in all aspects of boat marine services. For visiting captains and crew, the exceptional facilities at Sanctuary Cove cater to every aspect of refit and repair.
Shane Subichin, The Boat Works General Manager, says: “We see the partnership as a terrific value add to our customers while their boats are here for yard time.”
“We’re excited to have The Boat Works partnering with us as a Gold Sponsor,” says Steve Sammes, General Manager, Sanctuary Cove Marina.
“Our services, combined with our relationship, means that vessel owners can enjoy a holistic experience in one convenient location.
“The relationship further reinforces the synergy of our customer service offerings afforded by both unique facilities.”
