The Boat Works has added a Gold Coast’s largest ship lift, the 300 Tonne marvel named “Rhino” for its grit and hauling power

With 2.8m wheels and a stonking 13 metres in height, towering over the newly completed additional slipway, the 300 Tonne Marine Travelift now takes pride of place at the new Superyacht Facility on the Coomera River, Gold Coast, Australia.

The new 300 Tonne mobile boat hoist adds to the compilation onsite sharing the expansive footprint with the 70t lift, 100t Marine Travel Lift and the 45t Hydraulic Sealift.

Only three years ago, The Boat Works added the 100 Tonne ship lift to its facilities in the southern yard that today has over 1,000+ people working onsite and 60 onsite tenants comprising the gamut of marine professionals.

Over half of The Boat Works’ new superyacht yard is taken up with 40,000-square-metres of concrete, and expansive steel beams and walls are going up each day for the 18 massive individual refit sheds.

“The pace is incredible to say the least,” commented Shane Subichin, The Boat Works General Manager. “The new superyacht yard has really taken shape in only the past three months since we hosted the ASMEX and Marinas19 delegates in May.

“There is nothing comparable in Australia, and most likely, the world. The environmental initiatives, including water filtration and large tracts of bio gardens are unique.”

Scheduled for official opening in January 2020, The Boat Works Superyacht Yard will feature allocated work bays for superyachts up to 50m with a choice of 18 individual refit sheds, dedicated hardstand space, Captains and Owners’ lounge, 75m superyacht service berth option, an extra 50 work berths, all within what will be the greenest and cleanest facility. anywhere in the world.
