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 delivers significant value to the local economy.

Project overview

The Queensland Government partnered with City of Gold Coast and Southport Yacht Club to deliver a 163-metre Superyacht berth at the Southport Yacht Club. Officially opened in February 2022, the new berth allows the Southport Yacht Club to cater for 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 which 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.

  • Forecast to create around 30 jobs during construction

  • Expected to grow the local economy by $2.9 million each year

  • Forecast to support 20 ongoing jobs once operational


  • The new berthing facility will create more local jobs across the food and beverage, tourism and services sectors and will be supported by our region’s world-class capabilities in vessel repair, refit and maintenance.
