MARINAWORLD@20 Trinity Point on Lake Macquarie in NSW, Australia offers deep water moorings for vessels up to 30m (98ft). 20 years of new marinas To mark Marina World’s 20 th year, we continue our two-part celebration of marina developments by highlighting some of the newbuild marinas that have been completed since 2000. Part one (highlight rebuilds and highlight superyacht marinas) appeared in our digital-only July/August issue (available in our library at SOUTHEAST ASIA, AUSTRALASIA & FAR EAST • Port Bouvard Marina on the shores of the Dawesville Estuary south of Perth, Western Australia opened in 1999/2000 as the hub of a new residential development. The first phase comprised over 80 floating berths installed by Sea Slip Marinas and moored by Seaflex. • Ashiya Marina, located between Osaka and Kobe on Osaka Bay, opened in 2004 to set new marina standards in Japan. Owned and operated by BellPort Japan, it was built by Nishido Tekko America Corporation, a shareholder (at the time) of Bellingham Marine. Although fairly small in size with 165 slips, it incorporated marina firsts for Japan – electric carts and a computerised voyage planner for customers – and upmarket facilities. Like many marinas in the country, it was built as a members-only facility. • Qingdao Marina, one of the first fullservice marinas to be built in China, was completed in time to host the sailing events of the 2008 Olympic Games. Offering over 600 berths at Seaflex-anchored Pontona floating concrete pontoons, it was viewed as a spur to the development of a string of marinas along the east coast. • When One°15 Marina Club in Sentosa Cove, Singapore opened as 2005 nudged into 2006, it was a full two years ahead of schedule and, with 130 berths, had 30 more than the minimum required by the lease. It was the first marina in Asia purpose-built for berthing up to ten megayachts at any given time. Update to 2020: The marina has 270 berths and can berth superyachts up to 61m (200ft). • Aimed to fill a niche at the top end of Thailand’s marine leisure industry, Royal Phuket Marina (RPM) was 5 Gold Anchor classified even before opening. Ready for boats in December 2005, it had two basins, each built in a separate phase to accommodate a total of 350 vessels up to 35m (115ft) long. The outer marina is for visitors and the inner for the exclusive use of marina residents. Pontoons were supplied by Marina Systems International of Thailand and power pedestals by UKbased Rolec Services. Update to 2020: RPM has a covered drystack for vessels up to 15m (49ft) served by a Wiggins Marina Bull forklift. • Extensive plans were announced in 2006 for a 1,100 berth marina in Hiroshima, Japan. Boat Park Hiroshima, situated on the river just a 15 minute car journey from the city centre, was built to minimise the illegal mooring of boats in local bays and estuaries and was funded as a PPP by Nishida Tekko Corporation and BellPort Sanya Serenity Marina in southern China has boosted Sanya as a yachting and tourism destination and was a Chinese stop-over in the 2014/15 Volvo Ocean Race. – September/October 2020 17
