YARDS & YARD MACHINERY Left: the Gold Coast Marine Precinct is a world-leading maritime hub. Below: the new 100 tonne Marine Travelift has significantly boosted lift and launch operations in the new superyacht yard at The Boat Works. The Boat Works opens superyacht yard Following an exceptionally fast built time of just nine months, the new superyacht yard at The Boat Works in Coomera, Queensland is now open for business. In early February, the yard welcomed some of the region’s premium vessels of over 30m (98ft) for refit, repairs and maintenance. Customers were attracted by the 5-star amenities and the 300 tonne Marine Travelift boat hoist; the largest on Australia’s Gold Coast. Now spanning two facilities, The Boat Works occupies just over 22ha (55 acres) in total and accommodates vessels from 5 to 50m (16 to 164ft) within a masterfully designed and landscaped plot in the heart of the Gold Coast Marine Precinct. The new hoist joins the southern yard’s complement of 70 tonne lift, 100 tonne Marine Travelift and 45 tonne hydraulic Sealift, catering to widebodied multihulls. A superyacht magnet The Longhurst family’s private investment of more than AU0 million has resulted in marine and lifestyle infrastructure that is sure to prove a magnet for international superyachts and benefit southeast Queensland and Australia. “We’ve had a cast of thousands working on the development and it is already delivering economic flow on for businesses in southeast Queensland,” said owner Tony Longhurst. “Raising the standard has always been the motivation at The Boat Works and the superyacht yard is testament to the Longhurst family’s dedication to ecodevelopment and sustainability,” he added. The new yard occupies over 50,000m² (538,200ft²) of hardstand and superyacht refit sheds, accommodating 1km (0.6mi) of boats (as many as 40 vessels), including catamarans, motor yachts, sailboats and superyachts. - March/April 2020 39
