ST. GEORGE MOTOR BOAT CLUB ADDS 78 BERTHS TO MARINA
December 12, 2013
In late October, St. George Motor Boat Club, which is located in the southern metropolitan region of Sydney, completed an expansion to their existing marina. 78 berths for vessels 8m to 18m in length were added to the facility bringing the marina’s total capacity up to 228 and making the club marina one of the largest marinas in Australia’s NSW.
Bellingham Marine was hired as the design/build contractor for the job to provide a turn-key solution including piling, pontoons, and utility services.
In addition to the new berths, the marina added a second floating wave attenuator. The new 4m wide curved attenuator provides the marina’s interior slips with additional protection from prevailing Southerly winds. The marina’s existing “E” arm attenuator was also extended as part of the expansion project.
“The club is proud to have partnered with Bellingham marine in providing a state of the art facility for its 20,000 strong membership base,” said Club President David Blyth. “The system has already had its first test with the club experiencing 50 knot southerly winds on October 29 of this year. The attenuator performed as it was designed to; even under these extreme conditions with waves over 1 metre in Kogarah Bay the marina was like a mill pond.”
“We are very pleased with the way Bellingham Marine went about their work with minimal disruption to current parking and berthing. The 3.5 million dollar development was achieved through 5 years of hard work and is a credit to the board and club CEO Adrian Vermeulen. As a developer myself, I was impressed with the final result with less than 1% in variations from the original quoted amount,” said Blyth.
