D’ALBORA WILL ADD 178 BERTHS TO MELBOURNE’S WORLD RENOWNED DOCKLANDS
March 20, 2007
Located in the heart of Melbourne Australia, Victoria Harbour is the latest marina complex to be built in Melbourne’s world renowned Docklands. One of five different marina projects in the area, Victoria Harbour was quoted by Mark Haycox, urban designer for the government authority VicUrban, as being the “the best so far.” The new marina at Victoria Harbour was designed and constructed by Bellingham Marine Australia, Pty Ltd. and features the company’s patented Unifloat® pontoon system.
This world class boating facility boasts the best in modern mooring with secured access, first-rate amenities, and a myriad of shoreside services. All berths are fully wired with utilities including power and water. A public pumpout station is also available on site.
The first phase was completed in December of 2006 and included the installation of 72 berths over 3 main arms with an additional 106 berths planned for a second phase. The arm nearest the city has ten berths dedicated to short term public mooring access with the other two arms servicing long-term tenants. The marina’s berths range in length from 10 to 35 meters and accommodate a variety of vessels including, motor yachts, sails boats and catamarans.
Project milestones and delayed access to the work site required works to be carried out in a five week window. Bellingham Marine achieved the required duration of this fast tracked project by closely managing the project team of contractors. The project was completed on time and to the high quality level expected by Bellingham Marine and the developers.
Developed and managed by d’Albora Marinas, upon completion, Victoria Harbour will accommodate 178 vessels and will offer property owners living in Melbourne’s CBD the opportunity to moor their boat within a short walk of home or work. The vision for Victoria Harbour includes a mix of commercial, residential and retail space complimented by a state of the art marina.
