Servicing a cluster of Catamarans, Yachts and Power boats sitting quietly in their allocated storage space. The ‘Dry Marina’ i.e. out-of-water Storage option has proven to be a welcomed option for many customers.

Occupying over 3 acres of dry land storage in the new North Yard, the area now offers boat owners complete peace of mind that their beloved vessel is safe, secure and free from salt water maintenance.

Unique in the southern hemisphere, Australia’s largest ‘dry marina’ facility at The Boat Works, Coomera is proving a magnet for mariners seeking cost-effective options when their boats are not in use.

In a climate of rising costs and scarcity of marina berths, the solution of the dry marina is appealing to owners of power and sail, relieved to find a safe haven for their boat that provides security, a reduction in maintenance and access to a profusion of talented trades on-site.
Part of The Boat Works’ expansion which will double its current space to 45 acres, the dry boat storage precinct has a capacity up to 100 spaces for boats spanning 25 to 60-feet – and it’s already brimming with a sea of masts and motor yachts.
The mantra at The Boat Works is “why moor it when you can store it”, and that has struck a chord with cruising yachties and owners who may only use their vessels intermittently.
“Dry storage means a safe, secure place to keep their boats protected between use,” said Shane Subichin, General Manager at The Boat Works. “They’re out of water, so that minimises exposure to the elements, plus we offer 24/7 surveillance to put your mind at rest.
“The Gold Coast Marine Precinct offers all the services owners require for service, maintenance, refit work, and now storage, all much more cost-effectively than elsewhere on the east coast,” added Shane.

Since the new facility opened in November 2018, owners have been quick to take advantage of the innumerable benefits of the dry marina. Many are semi-retired and spend several months cruising in the winter and over the holidays, and then store their boat when they return home to family and work commitments.

Others are internationals who regularly take part in rallies and regattas in the South Pacific and are thrilled with the cost-savings and safety of the “lock up and leave” dry storage for their yachts.
Many say they simply prefer to store their boat out of water to avoid any danger of damage from adverse weather and immersion in water!

Owners have full access to power and water on-site and can use the free services such as ensuites, laundry, barbecues and the Bridgedeck Lounge, as well as the diversity of professional marine trades who can be coordinated to service, maintain regular checks and to detail or wash down your boat.

“The dry storage facility has attracted many newcomers to the Gold Coast Marine Precinct,” explained Shane. “Boaties who may have passed us by and headed home to Port Stephens, Newcastle, Sydney or Melbourne and stopping on the Gold Coast now.  Our clients simply fly in and fly out with the convenience of being located only 40 minutes either side of Brisbane and Coolangatta Airports, even more benefits. “It has generated a lot of work for local businesses and is keeping us on our toes as referrals bring even more vessels to the ‘dry marina’.”
