Grand opening for world-class Marina

AN IMPRESSIVE FIREWORKS display
watched by over fifty guests, saw the official opening of the new 50-berth Koolewong Marina in Brisbane Water at end of February.
The $5 million boutique marina is owned by Les Binkin and Symantha Suprain, owners of the Marmong Point Marina and
designers of the Trinity Point Marina in Lake Macquarie and has been six years in the planning.
Binkin and Suprain acquired the site which included The Boathouse Restaurant on Murphy’s Bay in Brisbane Water in July 2015.
A world class facility, the marina already has 35 berths booked and all to local residents most of whom will relocate their boats from Pittwater, Brooklyn and other locations in the Sydney area.
One of the first to sign up for a berth was Managing Director of Raine & Horne Real Estate Gosford. Commenting, he said “its been a long time coming with years of talk but finally it is here. This is not any marina it is a marina of world class standard and is up there with the best. Their attention to detail shows that the owners are highly experienced and should be congratulated for providing this much needed piece of infrastructure. We should be very proud of what they have achieved.”
Koolewong Marina offers safe and secure floating concrete berths for docking yachts, cruisers and catamarans permanently or for a casual visit. Each berth provides power and fresh water and state of the art security video is installed across the marina.
Jeff Weber has been appointed full time Marina Supervisor.
Services that are being offered at Koolewong are full professional boat detailing, boat sales, car parking and full amenities.
The well-known Boathouse Restaurant will continue to function as it has in the past.
Considerable landscaping work has been carried out on the car park and pathway leading off Brisbane Water Drive to encourage cyclists and walkers to call in on their way through.
Both Binkin and Suprain see the environment and ecology surrounding the marina as vital.
The Marmong Point Marina received Fish Friendly Marina status in 2013
Mr Binkin said, “We are proud to be accredited with this new environmental initiative
