HIGH PROFILE MARINA NOW BOASTS FLOATING DOCKS
May 1, 2000
Since 1867, one of the finest yacht clubs in Sydney, Australia, has undergone several expansions and renovations. The latest major project at Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club was the replacement of fixed wood jetties with five new Unifloat concrete floating arms from Bellingham Marine Australia. During construction, boats were shifted to allow demolition, installation and pile driving with as little inconvenience
to members as possible. Matthew Bate, marina manager, and Tom Sims, Bellingham’s manager for New South Wales, coordinated the interface between the club and construction crews. The new floating slips feature Rockla spun concrete guide piling and Marine Technologies’ service pillars and fire stations. All told, the club provides storage, both wet and dry, for 412 craft.
Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club offers an extensive array of services for its members and visitors. Among them are marine electronics and mechanics services, a ships chandlery, yacht brokerage, sail repair service, tender service, yacht charter and sailing school, and even a gymnasium. Additional onsite amenities include bathrooms, showers and fine dining.
