Marina Construction Update

Jan 21, 2010   //   by webadmin   //   News, Redevelopment  //  No Comments

Construction of the new marina is now well underway. Most of the dredging has been done and arms A, G, E and half of D have been completed. Arm F is next and we still expect to have the rest of the berths in place by mid year, 2010. The boats are moving in and it is wonderful to see the place transforming.
Attached below are a few photos of the construction so far. As they say a picture is worth a thousand words.





Demolition Begins

May 31, 2009   //   by webadmin   //   News, Redevelopment  //  No Comments

Demolition of the old jetty structure began with the removal of an area of the marina known by various titles: The Northern Marina, The Paris end, The Bronx and, very unkindly, the Graveyard.
This was an area of the marina on the wrong side of the slipway tracks where some of the cheaper berthing options were available. There will be some sadness as the old place slowly disappears. Here John, a long time resident and “Mayor” of the Bronx puts on a brave face as his berth vanishes behind him.

Tidemaster Wins Contract

Tidemaster Docking Systems has been awarded the contract to build the new 244 berth Oyster Cove Marina at Kettering, just 34km south of Hobart, Tasmania.

The agreement was set in place in November and with approvals already in place, construction will commence immediately and is scheduled to be completed by mid 2010.

Scenic Oyster Cove is known as the gateway to Bruny.

Jaco Coetzee, GM for Tidemaster Docking Systems, says “This sale represents not only a new era for Tidemaster, but a unique opportunity for Tasmanian boaties. The new marinas is set right in the heartland of some of the best cruising opportunities in the Island state, and combined with the state-of-the-art facility that we are manufacturing, I see a dramatic increase in the number of boats that will call Kettering home.”

GM, Jaco Coetzee believes the marina will open opportunity for a rise in boating.

Tidemaster has started construction of modules and expects to ship the first of the marina modules by Christmas.

Partnership for Marina Re-build

A partnership has been formed to undertake the rebuilding and expansion of the Oyster Cove Marina.
Garry Rogers, well known for his involvement in V8 Supercar racing and the car industry in Melbourne, has bought a share of the Marina from Phil & Anne Boustead. Phil & Anne have owned and managed the Marina since 1998. Garry’s positive outlook, energy and enthusiasm are very welcome and we are looking forward to the work starting in early 2009.




Marina Redevelopment Set To Start

Mar 3, 2008   //   by webadmin   //   News, Redevelopment  //  No Comments

After a lengthy process of consultation with all the key stakeholders, the proposal to expand and redevelop the marina was given planning approval by the Kingborough Council on the 12th of November.
The development proposal includes adding 80 Marina berths, associated dredging, expanded hardstand area including the installation of boat hoist, shedding and other associated works.
We are also planning to rebuild/replace the existing marina berths, seal the carparking areas and expand and improve the ablution facilities.
The masterplan is undergoing some final tweaking to ensure we are making the best use of our leased area and will be displayed here soon.
We expect to begin work early in 2008.
Reports on the marina expansion and other marina news will be posted here regularly.
