WORLD NEWS 66 berths with 6-star service AUSTRALIA: Marina owner/operator Mulpha is to spend over .3 million on a 66-berth extension at Sanctuary Cove Marina in Queensland. The investment will expand its capacity to host large vessels. “The new facility will be a ‘signature project’, setting a new benchmark in marina design and facilities in Australia,” says marina general manager Steve Sammes. Berth holders will enjoy a ‘6-star’ level of services and facilities, including some covered berths – a first in the Australian marina industry. Gold Coast company Superior Jetties has been awarded the build contract. “Sanctuary Cove is uniquely positioned to offer berth holders the ultimate boating and lifestyle experience,” Sammes adds. Marina users have direct access to the Sanctuary Cove retail village, home to one of the best dining and retail destinations on the Gold Coast, the five-star InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort, two championship golf courses, and extensive health and fitness services at the Sanctuary Cove Country Club. Mulpha has been encouraged by the continued growth of the Gold Coast marine industry. Recent announcements, such as the multimillion-dollar private investment in the refit and maintenance facilities in the PANAMA: Set to open this month (November), the brand new marina project of Buenaventura, 50 miles outside of Panama City on the Pacific coast, is part of a major upmarket residential development. The marina, which will be operated by US Marina Group, has 60 wet slips, drystack for 100 boats, a fuel dock, boat club, repair services and charter services. adjacent Coomera Marina Precinct and the Queensland Government’s commitment to long-term dredging of the Coomera River demonstrate the industry’s commitment to making the Northern Gold Coast the premium boating destination in the region. Greg Shaw, Mulpha CEO, believes that Sanctuary Cove is the country’s “best-positioned marina in terms of location and facilities” and says the expansion forms part of an ongoing long-term investment programme to continue to enhance Sanctuary Cove facilities for the benefit of all stakeholders including guests, residents and tenants. “Extending the marina facilities will attract a new superyacht market to the destination,” he asserts. The marina expansion is due for completion in May 2020 immediately prior to the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, which is owned and managed by Mulpha. Capacity at the marina will increase from 237 to 303 berths for vessels of 15-55m (50-180ft). Phase one completes at Al Maidan UAE: The first phase of the Al Maidan Marina expansion project in the emirate of Umm Al Qaiwain has been completed according to Jassem Humaid Ghanim Al Shar, chairman of the Umm Al Qaiwain Cooperative Fishermen Association. In a report issued by the Emirates News Agency WAM, he confirmed that the breakwater, along with 130 berths of various sizes up to 45ft (14m) was in place. The second phase will include the construction of a coast guard station, a new fish market, storage space for fishermen, accommodation for workers, and other service facilities. The project, launched by the Ministry of Infrastructure Development and set to cost AED65 million, will help preserve the fishing profession and encourage Emiratis to work in the industry. - November/December 2019 13
