NEW MARINA OPENS ON MELBOURNE’S WATERFRONT
August 18, 2006
Two of Australia’s leading companies have teamed up to deliver an integrated mixed-use development that combines residential, commercial, retail and leisure activities. Mirvac’s high-end development at Yarra’s Edge, located in the heart of Melbourne’s Docklands, includes five high-rise waterfront towers and a stunning new 168 berth marina designed and built by Bellingham Marine.
Located on the Yarra River between Crown Casino and the Bolte Bridge, Marina YE is one of the latest additions to the Yarra’s Edge development. Designed for long term mooring of large luxury yachts and motor cruisers, the marina features Bellingham Marine’s Unifloat® system and is equipped with up to 22 metre fully serviced berths. Berth sizes at Marina YE range from 10 metre to 22 metre. The marina also offers transient moorage for boaters visiting the area.
Marina amenities include fully serviced berths with communication provisions and individually metered power and water outlets. Wireless internet access is available on the docks and 24 hour security helps protect vessels moored in the marina. Dinning, shopping, and showering facilities are also available on site. Many of Yarra’s Edge apartment owners have already taken advantage of the opportunity to moor their boats at Marina YE – directly outside their doorstep. Additional berthing for water taxis and ferries has also been installed strengthening the area’s public transportation system.
Mirvac has more than 30 years of experience in the property industry and has an unmatched reputation for delivering quality products. Coupled with Bellingham Marine’s 48 years of experience and unsurpassed reputation in marina construction the two are setting the standard for Australia’s waterfront development.
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. Public Relations
