Superior completes Sovereign Islands superyacht marina

'Superior Sovereign Islands'    Superior Jetties
Superior Jetties has completed the superyacht marina expansion at The Sovereign Islands on the Gold Coast, Queensland Australia.

The installation for Lewis Land, The Sovereign Islands’ owner and development group, sees the marina expansion include eight new superyacht berths for Grant Torrens International Marine’s motoryacht brokerage display.

Superior CEO John Hogan said there was a marked shortfall of superyacht berths in Australia.

'Queensland, and Australia more broadly, is seeing quite an increase in large luxury vessels and superyachts, both visiting and on the market,' Mr Hogan said.

'With more large vessels being manufactured, imported and visiting it’s important to have suitable berthing facilities… they must be world class.'

The Sovereign Islands expansion comprised seven 27.5m to 30m concrete Elite system berths with aluminium walers, designed specifically for large vessels and superyachts.

The additional berths will allow Grant Torrens International Marine to moor vessels up to 30m.

Lewis Land Queensland director Rob Challenger said the marina expansion was in recognition of the increasing demand for superyacht berths.

'We chose Superior for the project for two reasons – it is a leading company in the marina industry globally with significant superyacht marina experience and, importantly, it is a Gold Coast business,' Mr Challenger said.

'A core element of Lewis Land’s development objectives is to work with local businesses.

'Superior has done a fantastic job in a short space of time meaning the marina is ready for the Grant Torrens International Marine Brokerage and Lifestyle Show, beginning on 24 May.'

Superior’s Elite marina system uses a heavy-duty concrete pontoon built using a solid monolithic flotation system – this is protected by a heavy-duty polyethylene skin. The system is designed to expand and contract independently of the flotation and reinforced concrete deck.

The specially-formulated concrete pontoon deck has an average concrete thickness of 125mm and is finished with a customised aluminium waler that incorporates a unique press in bump rubber fender eliminating the need for screws.

Superior will have an on-water exhibit at the 2012 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, 24-27 May.
