TALKING SHOP Located in the popular holiday destination of Port Stephens, d’Albora Marina Nelson Bay has 200 berths and offers wide ranging dining, retail and entertainment options. upgrade of the Wi-Fi systems in our marinas. Wi-Fi is important as people spend more time in the marina. We are installing additional television monitoring for security and safety. We are implementing monitoring of electric power so if there is a power outage we get an alert. We can address the problem and notify the owner. Often we can rescue the situation on the spot. We’ve developed a mobile phone app for our marina system. It’s just been launched in January. You can book reciprocal berthing at any of our marinas, see a list of services, check fuel prices and get weather updates. We have incorporated a great deal of visual information and it will get even better over time. And we’re enhancing the leisure attractiveness of the marina. We want to create a comfortable and fun “marina experience.” We are installing breakout areas, leisure sites with BBQ facilities, lounges and other spaces to enhance leisure activities. We’ve seen the shift to where boaters want to be part of a community, and we’re helping to make that happen. Building environmentally responsible marinas is another commitment. All our marinas are in the Green Offering the largest drystack in the southern hemisphere in addition to 77 wet berths, d’Albora Marina Pier 35 is a full service marina in Melbourne, Victoria. Marina Programme, and we build for sustainability from a green perspective. We’re replacing old lighting with highefficiency LED lighting and investigating use of solar panels as well. RW: How have you integrated your facilities with the communities in which you’re located? BB: We welcome non-boating people to experience the sites, look at the boats and enjoy the environment. We provided access for paddle boarding, all the craze right now, and kayaking. Our marinas are open and we welcome the public. We’re not a closed club; our vision is to create a series of vibrant boating and social hubs. In support of that vision we are focusing on implementation of diverse quality dining options and exploring the idea of lodgings for visitors to our marinas. RW: d’Albora prides itself on higher levels of service, for example your Dockmaster Assist services. Doesn’t that require a larger staff and a higher price point for your slips? BB: Yes, we do have a larger staff. However, we still maintain an extremely competitive price point within the marketplace. We work hard to provide value for the price by providing a higher level of facilities and service. RW: Let’s return to the strategic branding programme you mentioned earlier. Talk about that. BB: We engaged a research company and a branding consultant. The research gave us deep insights into what our members want in their facilities. We talked to current members and members who are no longer with us to determine what motivated them to leave, which is important to know. The research gave us great insights, very detailed insights. We get information on our sites and services, and we learn how we can do a better job of member retention. In the brand strategy programme we took out a clean sheet of paper to see how we could best communicate to our members, potential members and the community at large. Our objective is to be the brand leader. We worked on brand messaging and design issues. We have finished our planning and are just now moving into implementation.
