Southport Yacht Club Superyacht Berth

The Gold Coast is the number one Superyacht destination in the country. With our support the development of a Superyacht berthing facility will deliver significant value to the local economy.

Project overview

The Queensland Government, City of Gold Coast and Southport Yacht Club are partnering to deliver a 163-metre Superyacht berth at the Southport Yacht Club. The new berth will allow the Southport Yacht Club to cater for more and larger vessels (up to 135 metres), opening up the Gold Coast to some of the world’s largest and most luxurious yachts.

This project is a part of the $25 million Growing Tourism Infrastructure (GTI) Fund 2020/21, and is a key element of Queensland’s Economic Recovery Strategy: Unite and Recover for Queensland Jobs to help accelerate the State’s recovery from COVID-19.

  • 20 ongoing jobs once operational
