‘We’re adding over 135 floating berths which will make a total of 270,’ said Shaun Tiedeman, General Manager of DSS. ‘We can offer berths from 10m up to 30m for maxi Yachts’.
[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_cvq3G5Mq0″][vc_column_text]The expansion will cost nearly $7m and is the result of a decade of planning. ‘It will be the largest and most technologically advanced marina in Tasmania’, Shaun added.
Designed by Burbury Consultants, the new floating marina is based on the Bellingham Marine system and is being installed by Tas Marine Constructions.
The additional berthing capacity will be good news for interstate festival visitors. Over eighty were registered for AWBF 2015 and that number is likely to grow with future festivals. DSS has strong relationships with various mainland yacht clubs whose members are encouraged to bring their boats to Tasmania, and enjoy the facilities offered by DSS .
Best known for its sailing program, including well known events such as the annual Pipeopener Series, Melbourne to Hobart, Launceston to Hobart and King of the Derwent, DSS has a full schedule of summer and winter racing for keelboats and dinghies.
Although the take up of new berths has been strong, spaces are still available.
