    The Power of Change

    AS DAVID LIVINGSTONE once said: "I'll go anywhere as long as it's forward."

    This is a pretty apt motto for the past decade at Killcare Marina. This period has seen us transform from an organisation on the brlink of irrelevance to one that has succeeded with a number of achievements - and which continues to provide not only quality services and value, but also safer and more environmentally friendly work practices.

    Changes are a matter of course, and we have not been resting on our laurels. There have been many improvements to the facilities and to the range of services over these years.

    One innovation we are extremely proud of is our boat lift. This true change first took place in the imagination during a Sunday afternoon drive, and was then turned into reality. Due to our effort to develop a superior slipway service, the Marina now boasts the only boat lift on the Brisbane Water, a boat lift that is able to lift extra wide multi hull vessels and a lift that is far more gentle on boats than the usual slipway.

    We are extremely delighted with the new floating Marina, a project that represents hard work and determination and I am excited that it has finally come into fruition.

    Having worked at the Marina in various capacities from the age of 15, I am passionate about the Marina.

    As a keen boater myself I understand the importance of quality of workmanship, using quality products and offering quality facilities. I feel deep satisfaction derived from the fact, that the new facilities are of utmost quality and are available for many of our returning customers who have contributed to our professional reputation.

    We are extremely grateful for this support over the years. Our reputation is our biggest asset and experience has taught us that the best advertisement we can ever get is a referral. I am satisfied that we fulfilled our promises, and I am honoured to be the Marina Manager.

    The team at Killcare Marina are proud to be a longstanding business in the community, providing our customers with good old fashioned “Service” with the same good old fashioned "Prices".

    Please feel free to drop by at any time to discuss your boating needs or just to say hi.

    Michael Sparks CEO, Marina Manager

  • Boat Lift History (DIY)

    In 2011 we designed, fabricated, and in December 2011 commissioned a new Boat Lift.

    Great effort has gone into its design and development. It took us more than a year from the idea to the overall finish of the construction, followed by a few required modifications and improvements over the first year of its operation.

  • Barge History (DIY)

    The concrete barge has been moored at the end of the Marina wharf since 1994. The barge serves as a wave attenuator, protecting the boats moored at the Marina wharf from instances of strong wind from the west.

    The barge was originally built as a Navy Ammunition Lighter, and never possessed an aesthetical appeal.

    In 2013 we started a project to transform the barge into a workshop and to improve her visual appearance.

    Our services extend to boats in Pittwater, the Hawkesbury River and occasionally from Sydney. At prices up to 50% less than Sydney Harbour owners of multi-hull vessels are often prepared to make the trip up and combine some cruising in the Hawkesbury River with lifting their vessel on our facility.
