Just in time for spring, boating enthusiasts can now navigate the waterways at Port Coogee Marina with the opening of Phase 1 in Australand’s multi-award winning estate.
Located five minutes from Fremantle, the Port Coogee Marina is set to become the centrepiece of a world-class residential marina development.
On the back of a triple award win at the recent 2011 Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) WA Awards for Excellence, Australand WA General Manager Tony Perrin said the waterways opening was one of several significant milestones that will be reached over the coming months.
'Port Coogee has been developed as a new regional heart for Cockburn and the waterways and marina are there to be enjoyed by the whole community.
'The waterways have been designed to take a maximum 20 metre vessel within the marina waters and 12, 13 and 15 metre vessels in the canals.'
Mr Perrin said Port Coogee’s location was ideal for boat owners with the calm waters of Cockburn Sound and the range of support facilities to be offered unrivalled in the metropolitan area.
'Port Coogee’s public marina’s ability to accommodate up to 300 power and sail craft once complete makes it a perfect choice for boating enthusiasts,' Mr Perrin said.
'It will feature state-of-the-art refuelling and sullage facilities and a range of marine services for both penned and visiting recreational boats.
'The hard work undertaken over the past few years and the increasing level of home building activity means Port Coogee is on track to become a true coastal community.'
The first stage of 150 boat pens will be delivered by the end of the year.
