The Boat Works: Here We Grow Again

Not content to bask on their laurels as Australia’s greatest boat yard, The Boat Works has welcomed new partners to the fold over the past few months, adding to the offering for visiting boaties and locals.

There are now over 60 partner businesses on-site at this world-class facility, providing the largest concentration of marine trades in Australia, and spanning every facet of marine professionals – from boating supplies and chandlery offering trade prices, to high-calibre project management.

The array of services is phenomenal – from experts in gel coat repair, antifoul application, sandblasting and resprays, to a multi-skilled team who offer full-service packages from valet pick up, repair, maintenance and refit, along with everything in between – giving our customers an unrivalled choice.

Engineering and fabrication specialists, mechanical and hydraulics, trimming and upholstery, detailing and signage along with insurance experts, surveyors, electrical and electronics – the complete A to Z of marine services all in one place.

The most recent addition to The Boat Works is Paradigm Training, an 11-strong team providing training, licensing and certification for all levels of boat and PWC in both accredited and non-accredited courses designed for marine professionals and the recreational sector.

Customer testimonials are easy to come by and word-of- mouth referral from long-term customers lead to a steady stream of new boats to The Boat Works. John and Debra Caulfield, owners of a 575 Hanse with 2.85-metre draft, travel from Brisbane for haul-out with the 100-tonne travel lift. “We enjoy the quick and easy turnaround and the professionalism. The ease of arriving bow first into the lift that features an extended forebeam means no hassle of removing the rig. Access is easy and we don’t worry about tides now that the latest round of dredging has been done.”

Onsite rigging and yacht project management team, Everything Marine Australia, undertook a comprehensive amount of works on SY Amel 55. The owners expressed their appreciation for how the team demonstrated great skill and dedication to getting her back to new. The quality of their workmanship is excellent, with attention to detail evident in each of the repairs. It is of great comfort in stressful times to have experience by one’s side.

Mr Anderson owns a 38 Mariner, which undertook refit work recently. “Staff assisted me with a remote delivery, which made things very easy for me. From the time my vessel arrived at the yard, everyone involved, from the office to the staff at Ocean Degree, and Jessie from All Seas Marine, was exceedingly helpful in accommodating our timelines and needs, and offering the right advice when required.”

Yachtie, Aase Jakobsson is a fan of the facilities and support for the cruising community. “When maintenance or upgrades to achieve our cruising dreams need to be endured, certainly the services and the facilities for the live-aboard cruisers goes a long way towards easing what usually is a difficult and challenging experience,” he said. “The staff and trades are friendly and very competent, the facilities are clean and fresh. There is a very nice barbeque area, an air-conditioned lounge, multiple free laundry facilities, and shower facilities. The value for money cannot be understated. That’s why we keep coming back!”

On-site boat dealer Multihull Solutions used Choice Stainless for a client’s vessel, a Perry 43 sailing catamaran. “The service we received was outstanding. The team went over and beyond our expectations. It was stress-free and enjoyable.”

Seatech Marine was praised for their great service, good communication and comprehensive information. “The team at Seatech is always helpful, polite and prompt with sourcing parts. I only ever have to wait two days at most and communication is great.”

Shane Subichin, general manager at The Boat Works said, “The Gold Coast is the ideal pit-stop for captains and owners to ‘stay and play’, while their boats are serviced or carrying out refit works. The Boat Works offers every solution to boat owners of all types of vessels. We are dedicated and have experienced partners who go out of their way to help our customers to take their boating experience to the next level. Throughout our team and our onsite partners we share our customers’ passion for boating.”
