YARDS & YARD MACHINERY Left and below centre: the new MT hoist is the largest on Australia’s Gold Coast. On the water, the purpose-built marina, constructed by Gold Coast based Superior Jetties, features berthing for 15 superyachts of up to 50m (164ft) and alongside berthing for vessels up to 70m (230ft). Superior Jetties CEO, John Hogan, is proud to have worked closely with The Boat Works to create “a world-class superyacht facility.” “The owner’s vision was for a fully-integrated site so multiple environmental systems have been designed. Tony and all the team have been a pleasure to deal with and we value this landmark development as one of our best worldwide,” he commented. Happy captains International captains experiencing the new yard have said that the aesthetics and atmosphere rival marinas in Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach and Barcelona. The captain of 33m (108ft) MY Pinnacle said he and his crew received “first class service at a facility that surpasses many other facilities I have experienced as an international captain.” The captain of MY Settlement, a 35m (115ft) Sunseeker, was particularly enthusiastic. “This is next level! Compared to the rest of the world, there is nothing close to it here or overseas. The captains’ club lounge, with its extensive view of the marina and yard, is a bespoke space for meetings and relaxation. I’ve been to most yards in the world and this is unique. The attention to detail throughout the facility is unlike any other. The staff here have bent over backwards for us. We will be return customers for sure.” The captains’ club lounge – a luxury two-storey VIP reception centre adjacent to the slipway – is a quiet retreat for captains, crew and owners, offering premium services and commanding views over their vessel, marina and superyacht yard. The lounge was designed as a bespoke space for private discussions among owners, project managers and service providers. Along with access to over 60 marine professionals and on-site businesses, captains and crew can also renew and enhance commercial licensing with internationally recognised training at Paradigm Maritime and enjoy a choice of restaurants, cafés and bars. Clean measures Creating a clean green marina was the prime objective from the outset, setting a new benchmark for boatyards. Committed to preserving up to 200m (660ft) of land along the 1km (0.6mi) waterfront has resulted in a revival of plant and marine life and preserves the ecosystem. The resort-style lawns, palms and citrus trees create an oasis. Bio-gardens are planted along the yard’s perimeter as the final stage of the self-cleaning function of the tier- - March/April 2020 41
