Margate Marina in Tasmania has started work on a 150m extension to its wave attenuator which will pave the way for an additional 73 berths being made available at the site.

The marina, located south of Hobart on the D'Entrecasteaux Channel, commissioned its initial 50 berths as part of the redevelopment project last year. About 90% of those berths have now been leased.

The redevelopment of the site involves the replacement of existing wooden piers with new floating berths and has approval for up to 300 berths to be built.

The attenuator/breakwater extension includes a 90m southern extension and a right-angled 60m westward arm that will provide additional berthing security to the marina. The work is being carried by Pacific Pontoon & Pier.

The additional floating 73 berths will include individual 10m, 12m, 15m, 18m, 20m, 25m, 30m, 35m and 40m berths which the marina says will provide the only dedicated individual pens for larger vessels, including superyachts, in Tasmania.

The marina is now inviting enquiries from prospective tenants for the extra 73 berths under construction.

More information is on the website.
