Ninety-nine year leases and low purchase prices are expected to boost buyer interest in the final berths just released For Sale at Far North Queensland’s newest marina, the Bluewater Marina at Trinity Beach.
Boat owners and investors can choose from a selection of 10, 12, 15 and 18 metre mono-hulled berths and 12 metre catamaran berths which are now available at the Marina, ideally located at the Bluewater Residential Community just 20 minutes from Cairns’ Domestic and International Airports.
Priced from just $119,000, the berths offer direct deepwater access to the Coral Sea and the Great Barrier Reef.
In the ultimate peace of mind for boat owners, the Marina is cyclone rated and berths are protected by 24-hour security cameras and an on-site Marina Manager.
“Add a 99 year lease to all of those benefits and you have fantastic value for money compared to other Marinas where the leases are no where near as long and the purchase prices are much higher,” said Phil Leahy, the Director of Sales and Marketing for Bluewater developer, Brookfield Residential Properties.
“We expect strong interest in these final remaining berths, both from local and interstate boat owners seeking a safe mooring for their vessels, and from investors seeking a different type of affordable investment.”
Mr Leahy said marina berths were increasingly being viewed as an exceptionally good investment. Demand would ultimately outstrip supply and just like any other supply and demand situation, prices would rise accordingly, he said.
“Queensland has the largest number of boat owners per capita of any state,” he said. “When you combine this with the fact there will be only very limited opportunities for the development of marinas and canal residential projects in Far North Queensland in the future, Bluewater Marina represents a fantastic opportunity to tap into this market at the right time.
“It also offers the truly unique benefit of being a short boat ride away from one of the world’s most acclaimed natural attractions – the Great Barrier Reef. The future potential of an investment in a Bluewater Marina berth is strong.”
The Bluewater Marina was designed to cater for yachts and luxury watercraft, and was deliberately set back from the ocean to offer an unprecedented level of cyclone protection. An adjacent boat ramp and large trailer car park offer convenient access and use, all day every day.
“The Marina is located adjacent to the planned retail and dining precinct so boat owners will ultimately have the chance to enjoy extensive lifestyle facilities, just a short walk from their boats moored in the Marina,” Mr Leahy said.
