Berth Allocation:  At Breakwater, our team will try our best to allocate the most suitable berth for your needs - shorter term visits, longer stays or living aboard, we'll work with you to accommodate your boating needs.  To allocate an appropriate berth, our staff will use your vessel’s overall length (i.e. including bowsprit, pulpit, anchor, davits, tenders & motors).  On arrival, the Marina Manager may survey your vessel to confirm.  If your boat exceeds the length or width of the nominated berth, we may need to allocate a larger berth size at the manager’s discretion.



At Breakwater Marina, we can accommodate visiting Superyachts up to 45m. We are conveniently situated in the City Centre close to local services, entertainment facilities or to simply stock-up, making our city an ideal place to stop-over.  Speak to our Marina staff about tidal restrictions accessing the Marina Entrance channel which is dredged to -2.0m, with +3.5m depth in the Marina Basin. Power Requirements cater from 32amp, 63amp, 125amp to 415v power available at our selected Superyacht berths.

For Superyacht Enquiries, please visit our Superyacht page or contact Marina Management to discuss further.
