Watch our video to uncover some great boat storage ideas. No longer will the excuse "got no room" will ever be heard again!
The St Kilda Marina is an ideal place to moor or dry store your vessel. St Kilda was the first commercial marina built in Australia in 1969. Built from swamp land by the famous Spooner family (see Caribbean Boats) the Marina has become a landmark for the cosmopolitan St Kilda skyline and surrounding tourist area.
Located only 400 meters from Luna Park and the Acland Street cafe and restaurant precinct. Your choices of boat storage are several; the atmosphere is relaxed and informal.
Your private, floating marina berth for your vessel. Secure locker, 240v electricity and fresh water ensures self sufficiency. Marina management and staff, encourages boat owners to use your vessel for weekend and overnight stays, to enjoy the wonderful restaurants within the Marina precinct and surrounding areas such as Acland Street. 24/7 access to your boat encourages increased usage and accessibility.
Undercover storage with unlimited fork-lift launch and retrieval 364 days a year (except Christmas Day) usually for the smaller vessels to approx. 21ft or circa 2,500kgs maximum. Access to shared electricity and water.
Outside storage with unlimited fork-lift launch and retrieval 364 days a year (except Christmas Day), usually for larger vessels to approx. 26ft or circa 2,500kgs maximum. Access to shared electricity and water.
Boat & Trailer Park:
Outside storage area within marina complex, where you launch and retrieve your vessel yourself, using your own vehicle. Direct access to the private members boat ramp avoids public congestion and summer time stress!! Access to shared electricity and water.
The Marina is privately owned therefore purchasing a berth outright or for a long term lease is simply not possible. All boat storage and/or marina berthing are conducted on a strict 6 or 12 month rental basis only.
The Marina has a wonderful club atmosphere and centrally located within easy access to Port Phillip Bay, 10kms from CBD and has secure car parking, only metres from your boat.
Within the Marina precinct nestled amongst the boats and palm trees are several of Melbourne's coolest restaurants; Riva and The Great Provider. Both offer different levels of dining and ambiance, we suggest on a warm summer's night, there is no better place to dine.
In addition to fine eating the Marina boasts a friendly and relaxed boating community and marine trades, ready to cater for your every need.
Priority berthing is usually given to all new Caribbean vessels purchased from our company. This avoids the long and lengthy waiting period.
Note: Some moorings for larger vessels are currently wait-listed for 2 years.
St Kilda Marina has installed 2 x environmentally friendly, trailer boat wash bays, located on the western side of the Marina complex (behind the north & south storage buildings) and 1 x on-water located at the fuel dock - for the larger, non-trailerable vessels.
These purpose-built, wash bay locations, will use 100% rain-water collected into 5 x 30,000L water tanks from the roof of both the north and south undercover storage buildings.
Coin-operated high-power, pressure cleaning machines enables owners to wash their boats, clean covers in a totally environmentally friendly manner, regardless of the current stage of the water restrictions.
Stand-by and watch this space for more details of the forthcoming future development of St Kilda Marina as she expands her wings to cater for Melbourne's growing interest in boating and the exciting lifestyle she brings.
