WORLD NEWS Second stage

WORLD NEWS Second stage for Friday Harbour CANADA: Having successfully completed phase one, Poralu Marine has now been contracted to undertake the second stage of a 1,000 slip marina project on Lake Simcoe in Ontario. Friday Harbour Resort is destined to become a new allyear-round upmarket residential and visitor destination. The company, which has been instrumental in introducing the concept of aluminium dock systems to North America, designed and built the phase one Friday Harbour marina system at its factory in Saint-Eustache, Quebec and completed all in record time to enable the facility to open in spring 2018. It offers multi-location commercial marina slips and private residential docking amenities along a boardwalk. Stephen Fischer, Poralu Marine sales manager in Ontario, summed up the challenges and the result. “As this [Friday Harbour] is located on a lake that freezes over in winter, we had many constraints for this project considering we had to start delivering in February, the heart of winter. Meeting these challenges required us to demonstrate our technical ingenuity while allowing design to prevail. After all, Friday Harbour is a beautiful Coral Sea Resort to boost Abell Point’s attractions AUSTRALIA: Paul Darrouzet, owner of the award-winning Abell Point Marina in Airlie Beach, has exchanged unconditional sale and purchase contracts for acquisition of the adjacent Coral Sea Resort. The strategic move is the next step in his plan to continue developing Abell Point as a leading international marina. In recent years, Abell Point has undergone an AU million upgrade and now has 520 wet berths, berthing to accommodate vessels up to 80m (262ft) in length, and highly praised restaurants and venues. With impeccably maintained grounds and a beautiful new 2.5ha (6acre) garden opening early this year, the marina already boasts a resort-like atmosphere. The addition of first-class boutique accommodation and an enticing array of facilities – including an oceanfront restaurant, a private dining seaside gazebo, cocktail lounge, fitness room, private higher end development. With a Poralu programme that found a way to match engineered solutions with aesthetically jetty, 25m (82ft) pool, wedding chapel, 200-seat function room, resort shop pleasing high-end products, this marina will certainly increase in value over time,” he said. and tour desk – will contribute to the marina precinct becoming a premier mainland destination resort. “Over the course of the past two years the Whitsundays have faced a great deal of adversity,” Darrouzet comments. “However, that said, we are all greatly confident in the future of the region and I have a sincere and deep interest and investment in the ongoing development of the Airlie Beach community. I am truly excited about this next phase on a number of levels, from our superyacht strategy through to every aspect of our business this acquisition makes sense.” www.marinaworld.com - January/February 2019 7
