It’s big

Located on the eastern coastline of Australia, you can find the one of the biggest boat building regions in the southern hemisphere – the Gold Coast. It is a city that offers:

  • 10 commercial marinas
  • 57 kilometres of pristine coastline
  • over 260 kilometres of navigable waterways
  • over 40,000 local registered water crafts and
  • more than 40 beaches.

Superyacht destination

The Gold Coast offers a one stop shop for superyacht berthing, maintenance, services and fit out:

  • Over 125 Superyacht berths (including 1 Megayacht berth)
  • Up to 65m length overall (LOA) unpiloted access to marine precincts
  • Ability to accommodate oversize vessels up to 160 metres in length
  • Provides connections to the Gold Coast international airport
  • Permanent customs clearance port.

High demand

Spanning 250-hectares, the Gold Coast Marine Precinct is the heart of the Australia’s marine industry and builds up to 80% of Australia’s boats. It is home to international brands and manufacturers such as Riviera, Telwater and Maritimo.

Demand is so high for quality boat manufacturing that Riviera has taken matters into their own hands and partnered with one of Australia’s top maritime training providers, TAFE Queensland. Together they now train over 74 marine apprentices out of the Riviera headquarters.

  • Up to 330 tonne capacity lifts and up to 400amp powered berths
  • A multitude of accessory manufacturers and expansive hardstands
  • More than 50,000 vessels maintained, repaired and built
