Recreational boaters can look forward to more casual berths at St Kilda Harbour this spring thanks to the government’s unprecedented investment in making boating better in Victoria.
The $83,500 project will see five new finger pontoons installed along the outer arm of the existing public berthing pontoon that will create an additional ten casual berths.
The government committed to providing eight new casual recreational boating berths in Port Phillip. The new berths at St Kilda Harbour together with two additional berths installed as part of the recent Rye Pier upgrade, exceeds the government’s recreational boating berthing commitment by four.
Funded by Better Boating Victoria, the project will be delivered by Parks Victoria with a view to commence works in October 2020 and have the new berths operational by November 2020. They will be free for public use and provided on a first come first served basis.
The installation of the new berths on the outer arm of the St Kilda Harbour Marina Jetty comes on top of the government’s investment in 2019 of thirty new seasonal moorings along the Mornington Peninsula coast.
The improvements at St Kilda Harbour are part of the government’s $47.2 million investment in recreational boating that includes upgrading six priority boats ramps, reviewing boating infrastructure management arrangements in Port Phillip and Western Port and establishing the Better Boating Fund.
