The Yard Brisbane Expands to Accommodate More Superyacht Services: The Yard Brisbane, located on Australia’s east coast near the Port of Brisbane, is undergoing development to accommodate both larger superyachts and a bigger variety of related services. Among the services currently offered are vessel refit and repair, ship-lifting, project sheds and berthing for superyachts.
Over the next two years, development will include resurfacing of hardstand areas, renovations and upgrades to existing building and project hall and new administrative offices. By March, the yard will also operate a new 200-ton self-propelled lift. With the existing 300-ton and 600-ton travel lifts, the yard will have grater flexibility be enabling better access to existing project sheds and hard-standing areas.
Mark Phelps, international development manager at The Yard Brisbane, noted that his facility will be able to accommodate more superyachts, have more specialized on-site marine services and be able to service larger and more sophisticated vessels in and out of the water.
Officials at the Yard Brisbane also recognize the momentum that the South Pacific is gaining as a superyacht destination and base. Phelps said his company’s goal is to meet the growing demand for servicing yachts with longer-term upgrades that include larger lifting capability, keep pits for sail boats and more berths for in-water work.
The yard recently welcomed the 43-meter superyacht sloop Mystere for a full refit that will include a pain job, new teak decks, rig service and keel and rudder removal for survey.
