WORLD NEWS Drystack expansion sets new regional standards USA: Marker 1 Marina in Dunedin, Florida is to significantly expand its drystack facilities so as to better handle and accommodate larger vessels. The project, which should complete next month (December) incorporates the use of a new 52,000lb (23,587kg) Wiggins Marina Bull forklift. The new drystack building will hold over 350 vessels of up to 45ft (m) in length in a specially-designed secure structure. Marker 1 also offers custom boat lifts for customers who prefer this option. 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 AU0 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). Meeco Sullivan buys Wahoo Docks USA: Meeco Sullivan’s parent company, Tuckahoe Holdings, has acquired a majority ownership interest in Wahoo Docks. Tuckhoe Holdings is a family run and family controlled private investment firm that focuses on acquiring successful businesses it can own and invest in on a permanent basis. Wahoo Docks is a 25-year-old company that has become a leading North American supplier of aluminium residential floating dock systems. Meeco Sullivan specialises in galvanised steel and timber systems. Tim Osby, who will retain his ownership position at Wahoo Docks and continue in his role as president, commented: “We have always taken great pride in designing and producing the highest quality aluminium dock systems and we are excited to be joining forces with an industry leader like Meeco Sullivan. It will be business as usual for us as we continue to support our nationwide dealer network creating new sales opportunities for them and helping Meeco Sullivan grow its commercial aluminium dock business.” Ralph Morley, senior vice president sales and business development for Meeco Sullivan, also spoke highly of future prospects. “This is another great example of Tuckahoe Holdings’ commitment to supporting Meeco Sullivan’s growth goals by giving us the resources to make strategic acquisitions,” he said. “Wahoo Docks is a highly respected industry leader and a perfect complement to Meeco Sullivan’s business. When you add Wahoo Docks’ 70,000ft² [6,503m²] state-ofthe-art manufacturing facility in Georgia to our McAlester, Oklahoma and Warwick, New York manufacturing facilities we have more production capacity and expertise in galvanised steel, aluminium and timber dock systems than anyone in North America,” he added. - November/December 2018 9
