MARINA IS UPDATED TO INCREASE CAPACITY
February 2, 2006
With a prime location on the beautiful waters of Australia’s Port Stephens, Soldiers Point Marina was recently rebuilt to accommodate larger craft and increase capacity. The marina design and construction was handled by Bellingham Marine.
The recently completed project incorporates the Bellingham Unifloat and Pacific systems with ducted servicing. The 100-berth marina accommodates vessels from 7 m to 42.7 m. All berths have full-service amenities, including 150-amp, 3-phase power; water; telecommunications; TV; Foxtel and wireless internet. They feature filtered water to provide the purest water for drinking and washing boats.
The marina also offers a 24-hour, self-serve fuel wharf and a free pump-out facility. Sandy’s Marine and Chandlery is a well-stocked marine store offering bait, tackle, fishing gear, gas, ice beverages and snack foods. It also performs essential marine services, including mechanical repairs, servicing and shipwright services. Marine electricians and skilled mechanics are available on call. The marina is also home to Riviera Sales-Port Stephens, with Steve Stewart and his team handling sales of the comprehensive Riviera flybridge and sports cruisers and stylish US imports including Four Winns.
Soldiers Point and nearby Nelson Bay meet the shopping, entertainment and dining needs of all discerning boaters. The marina’s courtesy car is available to boatowners for use in and around the local area. A complimentary pick-up and/or drop-off at Newcastle Airport can also be arranged for those choosing to arrive or depart the area by air. On site, the Point Restaurant offers a beautiful waterfront dining experience with seafood and prime rib specialties. Informal dining is available at the Bimini Bar and Grill. Plus, the marina is only an hour away from the Hunter Valley wine district and is just 25 minutes from an airport with direct flights to many capital cities.
As the world’s leading marina design/build construction company, Bellingham Marine produces Unifloat saltwater systems, Unideck freshwater systems and Unistack dry storage systems for marinas worldwide.
