Now spanning two facilities, The Boat Works occupies 55-acres in total and accommodates vessels from 5 to 50-metres within a masterfully designed and landscaped precinct in the heart of the Gold Coast Marine Precinct, Coomera.


The new 300 Tonne boat hoist joins the southern yard’s complement of 70 Tonne lift, 100 Tonne Marine Travel Lift and the 45 Tonne Hydraulic Sealift, catering to wide-bodied multihulls.


The Longhurst family’s private investment of more than $100 million has resulted in marine and lifestyle infrastructure that will prove a magnet for international superyachts and benefit south-east Queensland and Australia.

Starting such a project from a blank canvas has enabled the shipyard to create something that feels more in tune with a luxury resort than an industrial shipyard. It is clear from visiting that great care and attention to detail has been taken in every detail of the new facility. Each superyacht shed has been fitted with high bay LED lighting and dedicated air-conditioned work rooms with ensuite facilities, providing ideal working conditions for long projects. Lawns, palms and citrus trees make up the beautiful landscape to create the feel of an oasis throughout. Every aspect of The Boat Works has been designed to offer an experience.


That experience is most evident in the bespoke-built VIP Captain’s Club Lounge. The two-story VIP reception and lounge greets Owners and Captains directly from their superyacht, welcoming them into an opulent resting space with panoramic views of the superyacht marina. The Lounge boasts an interior décor that would not look out of place on most superyachts, which along with the Courtesy Cars will ensure that the transition from sea to land is seamless. Owners, Captains and crew are treated to an indulgent lifestyle while peacefully knowing that the 50,000m2 of hardstand and refit sheds has everything covered for the technical needs of a superyacht.
