New Superyacht Berths at Gold Coast Marina

Press Release
Friday, May 18, 2012

Superior Jetties has completed the superyacht marina expansion at The Sovereign Islands on the Gold Coast, Australia

The project was  to provide moorings for eight vessels up to 30m for Lewis Land, The Sovereign Islands' owner and development group and included eight new superyacht berths for Grant Torrens International Marine's motoryacht brokerage display.

Superior CEO John Hogan said there was a marked shortfall of superyacht berths in Australia. "Queensland, and Australia more broadly, is seeing quite an increase in large luxury vessels and superyachts, both visiting and on the market," Mr Hogan said. "With more large vessels being manufactured, imported and visiting it's important to have suitable berthing facilities... they must be world class."

The Sovereign Islands expansion comprised seven 27.5-30m concrete Elite system berths with aluminium walers, designed specifically for large vessels and superyachts.

Lewis Land Queensland director Rob Challenger said the marina expansion was in recognition of the increasing demand for superyacht berths.
"We chose Superior for the project for two reasons – it is a leading company in the marina industry globally with significant superyacht marina experience and, importantly, it is a Gold Coast business," Mr Challenger said.

Superior's Elite marina system uses a heavy-duty concrete pontoon built using a solid monolithic flotation system – this is protected by a heavy-duty polyethylene skin. The system is designed to expand and contract independently of the flotation and reinforced concrete deck.
