Southeast Queensland’s luxury destination, Sanctuary Cove, has become the home of superyachts with the launch of its new $3.5M Pier C development, adding a further 31 berths to the marina and taking the destination’s superyacht berthing capabilities to 39 in total.
The news also comes with the appointment of Australia’s former Below Deck Chief Stewardess, TV Presenter and Yachtie, Francesca Rubi, as official Ambassador of the Sanctuary Cove Marina to spearhead the campaign.
The Pier C development by Mulpha is the next stage in Sanctuary Cove’s 2023 strategy to address the growing demand for permanent and transient superyacht berths in the Sunshine state. It comes after the destination completed its $10M marina expansion in June 2021, which saw the addition of 61 new berths and the first undercover berths in the southern hemisphere.
“We are thrilled to officially unveil Pier C as part of our greater superyacht focused plans to address the growing desire from national and international superyacht captains to berth at Sanctuary Cove,” General Manager of Mulpha Sanctuary Cove Marina, Steve Sammes, said.
“The demand for more large-scale berthing opportunities in the South-East is increasing and there is an invaluable economic opportunity to invest in more super-yacht driven piers on our coastline. Sanctuary Cove is superyacht ready, now.”
Sanctuary Cove Marina was one of seven marinas who received its Superyacht Ready accreditation within days of the Marina Industries Association’s Gold Anchor and Superyacht Ready accreditations in December 2022, successfully meeting the suitability criteria of the marina’s infrastructure to accommodate superyachts, accessibility for superyachts, security measures and service availability.
