SOUTH AUSTRALIA BOASTS A NEW, HIGH-CLASS MARINA
June 1, 1999
South Australia has a new marina in Adelaide. It’s part of a multi-use residential and commercial development built by Baulderstone Hornibrook, one of the largest builder/developers in Australia. The company chose Bellingham Marine to supply and install its Unifloat concrete floating pontoon system for the 59-berth Holdfast Shores Marina.
Tony Caretti, Baulderstone’s manager for the project, said that the quality and reputation of Bellingham Marine and its pontoon systems were the primary reasons the company was chosen to build the marina and trenched fuel jetty. A special feature of the installation is the single berthing arrangement, which is considered the optimum in boat access because it allows each owner to have a finger pier along both sides of the boat.
Steel piles with HDPE sleeves were used to anchor the marina, and the docks feature service pedestals from Marine Technologies. Boaters and the general public can enjoy many restaurants and shops within the complex, thanks to a wide berth area and adjacent commercial boardwalk. This segment of the development also includes luxury apartments and penthouses, retail tenancies, visitors facilities and parking for over 700 vehicles.
