Navigating the Shipping Channels

We have over 40 km of shared shipping channel in Moreton Bay and these channels are used by thousands of recreational vessels, hundreds of commercial ships and an increasing number of tourist liners each year, you will be given all the appropriate knowledge on how to avoid these vessels.  Did you know that there are 5 virtual channel markers in the shipping channels?

You may also be interested in using our mobile phone app to log on via Boat Beacon. This will give you the added protection of ‘collision alarm’ with any other vessel using AIS. If you are a user of the shipping channels or plan to do so, this is a must.

MBTBC MARINA will only sell another 1 berth

Call George Davie, Chairman of the Marina Co Board for full details (no brokers involved) 0418731753.

This is the only club marina where the berth owner’s control their own destiny. The Marina Co holds the head lease, therefore, as a member of the Marina Co you have a say in the future. The first lease term is until 2044 and what happens after that with future lease extensions is the berth owner’s decision as a group, and no one else to dictate terms.

If you purchase to rent out as an investment, the Marina Co will guarantee that the six-monthly lease and Marina charges are covered for the first two years if for some reason the rental return is not sufficient. A fully rented berth currently returns approximately 4.8% after all costs.
