Upgrade complete at Yamba Marina

Yamba Marina has completed the full refurbishment of the entire floating section of the marina with the finalisation of work on D Arm. Yamba Marina has 94 berths. A DA is in place for an additional 45 berths

Since late 2016 the floating marina has undergone a total face lift,

  • Over 5 kilometres of new treated hardwood timber whalers have been put in place.
  • 60 new M-Tech power and water pedestals installed.
  • New fire reels and fire extinguishers,
  • More than 1500 new through rods installed.
  • Over 300 new fibreglass inserts installed replacing old marine ply joints and sections.
  • Pile rollers to all berths have been replaced with new equipment.
  • More than 400 new cleats installed.
  • Access gangways have no-skid fiberglass long-life treads.
  • More than 2000 meters of new berth and public area fenders installed.

The fuel dock and visitor berths have been ungraded and two floating work berths upgraded and strengthened.

In addition, the marinas’ 21 swing moorings are currently undergoing a scheduled makeover with new 13mm gal chain, new swivels, and 16mm tested shackles. Blocks are lifted

The marina refurb project was managed by Complete Marine Services, a south-east Queensland company. Importantly, Complete Marine was able to carry of the entire job with only very minor disruption to marina activities. “This was a huge job for us being a smaller marina” said owner Peter Sutton. “Russell Holloway and his team from Complete Marine started the job 18 months or so ago and were able to complete on time and on budget,” Peter Sutton said.

“We now have a fully-rebuilt marina and a DA in place for an additional 45 berths which we will begin work on shortly” Peter said. “The North Cost is going ahead very strongly and with the new Pacific Highway upgrade Yamba will be less that 1.5 hours from Cooloongatta Airport and the Gold Coast. We’ll also be just about an hour by road from Coffs Harbour,” Peter said.
