What are the best marinas?

There are over 300 marinas in Australia that cater for everything from small fleets of local boats to the ever-growing number of international superyachts coming from overseas each year.  You can divide marinas into three broad groups;

  1. Commercial
  2. Residential
  3. Club

Typically they provide more than just a basic boat storage service with many offering a wide range of choices to get more enjoyment from your boat ownership. We can transport your boat to any marina on the east coast of Australia. There are lots of choices and the eastern seaboard has Australia’s most popular cruising areas so some locations can get very crowded as they offer better facilities than others. Uniquely our transportation service can also pick you up from a boat ramp that can make things much easier sometimes.

It is always important to do some research first and look at the distances between marinas, how busy they are and if you can book a berth ahead of time. You have to ensure you don’t run out of water or fuel at a remote location in between. Although transporting your boat part of the way by road can solve this too.

A few of our favourite marinas that we do can provide boat transport from;
