Marina Lounge concepts revealed

The Gladstone Marina will soon be home to an ultra-modern Marina Lounge to give visiting boaties an exclusive space to kick back and relax their sea legs.

Work is already underway on the Gladstone Ports Corporation facility with the floor completed last week while the kitchenette and automatic doors are taking shape.

The $150,000 Marina Lounge fit out will feature a kitchenette, games area and library as well as a business centre.

The concepts reveal a contemporary design with a blue, white and timber colour scheme.

The new service has been months in the making and will offer boaties who moor at the marina five star facilities during their stay as early as Easter.

Marina Superintendent David Osmond said the new GPC Marina Lounge is located at the entrance to the private Marina arms.

“We provide many services here at the Gladstone Marina to make sure our customers’ stay is as enjoyable as possible everything from a laundry to showers and even a courtesy bus,” Mr Osmond said.

We provide many services here at Gladstone Marina to make sure our customers’ can refresh, relax and explore.

We have an experienced team on hand to help plan your journey and facilities to help you refresh, including laundry, private shower and bathroom amenities, even a courtesy bus,” Mr Osmond said.

“The Marina Lounge is a welcome addition to help our valued customers refresh and relax in a premium waterfront lounge.

“Some of our guests spend long periods on the water so to have this modern hub will be fantastic to come and check their emails, read a book or even socialise with other guests.

“It will help generate that real community feel.”

Acting CEO Craig Walker said the facility puts the Gladstone Marina on the map as a world class facility.

“We’re getting closer to the Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race and we will have hundreds of crew on yachts sailing into our harbour,” Mr Walker said.

“The ones who will berth at the marina and stay a few nights will be wanting to rest their tired sea legs and what a perfect place to do that at our Marina Lounge.

“It’s all happening in Gladstone this Easter.”
