Our Plans

Initially we are looking to develop a new floating jetty at the Naval Point slipway, which will provide for improved facilities and safety for all users. 

The jetty consists of three parts:

  • Fixed timber access jetty
  • 12 metre gangway connecting the fixed and floating jetties
  • 20 metre x 5.25 metre floating jetty using five exsiting concrete breakwater units

The estimated cost for the above is $220,000 which excludes private contributions of approx $100,000.

Benefits

  • Stable floating jetty in rough conditions to berth boats against for launching / recovery to/from boat trailers.
  • The jetty will act as a buffer for waves generated in adverse weather conditions, calming waves which in turn will provide for safer transition to/from boat trailers.
    The jetty is positioned to the south therefore boats will be blown away from the jetty due to sudden wind gusts from the south.
  • Ability to guide boats onto trailers using hand lines
  • Additional berthing available during peak usage times, assuming weather conditions permit.

This jetty is phase one of a larger concept plan to enhance facilities at Naval Point. However the jetty is needed to attract more users to make the subsequent steps viable.
