Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron Safe Harbour enhances the wellbeing of sailors in Port Philip Bay.
This major redevelopment focuses on creating an attractive and welcoming multipurpose facility for members and visitors. It includes 110 additional wet berths and upgrade of 35 visitor marina berths, extension of existing wave wall and removal of existing wave attenuator. The existing slipway, winch house and gantry crane are also to be replaced.
Original timber from the slipway is being reused for the stairs, joinery and cladding on the external facade of the new clubhouse.
The new clubhouse and upgraded safe harbour means visiting sailors can enjoy temporary membership as well as high grade marina facilities such as 24 hour toilets, showers and laundry with Wi-Fi access at the berths.
Basso Project Management oversaw both the new clubhouse and upgraded safe harbour projects. Assuring a more timely program of dredging and pylon installation avoided unnecessary costs and time delays
“This is a very personal project for me. As a child my family had a holiday home in Blairgowrie that my dad built. We used to visit all the time and I still remember sailing our friend’s Minnow out from the shore of the clubhouse.” Elia Basso, Director, Basso Project Management
