Design Plans Released for Kennedy Point Marina

Kennedy Point Boatharbour Limited has released preliminary conceptual design plans for an approximately 200-berth marina proposed to be built at Kennedy Point in Putiki Bay, on the south-west side of Waiheke Island.

A New Zealand marina developer Tony Mair and an expert team of specialist consultants are conferring with interested parties on the concept designs and preparing an application for resource consent.

“The plans have been developed to minimize the impact to the proposed site and to offer benefits to the Waiheke Boating community,” Mair said.

The marina will be located adjacent to the existing rock breakwater, which currently protects commercial vehicular ferries. The site has already been modified with marine structures and commercial developments.

All materials for the project – including the rock for the breakwaters, the floating marina piers and piles, and concrete car park pontoons – will be brought in by barge to minimize noise and local disruptions.

The marina office, storage, visitor facilities and proposed clubrooms will also be floating, a technique that has already been successfully utilized at sites such as Orakei Marina in Okahu Bay.
