Wyndham Harbour Marina
stage one close to completion
The construction of the marina at
Wyndham Harbour, a $440 million residential
and marina development located in Werribee
South, Victoria is in full swing with piles
now in place and pontoons being installed.
The piles and pontoons have recently been
installed by Bellingham Marine, creating the
Marina’s critical foundation.
Breakwaters, dredging, land reclamation
(to provide parking at the marina) and services
infrastructure (including electricity, water,
sewer and Wi-Fi) have been completed,
with only the berth installation and services
connection remaining. These works will
facilitate a fully integrated marina, creating
a safe harbour for recreational craft.
Up until now, there has been no safe
place between Geelong and Williamstown
for boating enthusiasts to dock their boats
when seeking protection from volatile weather
Stage one opens early 2016.

The Missing Link
If you cannot put your hands on your safety
equipment in less than 10 seconds, it could
cost you your life.
Unfortunately, on the majority of boats,
mandatory safety equipment is stored in hard
to access places, and more often than not is
out of sight and hidden away.
Life Cell has been designed to address this
very problem, which we believe is the missing
link in marine safety. It was developed after a
real life situation when a 42ft motor cruiser sank
suddenly and without warning in less than 50
seconds, 10km off the coast of Sydney.
Life Cell is a simple flotation device that
stores all your mandatory safety equipment
and is designed to float off its bracket if the
vessel is submerged. It keeps people together
in the water and allows you to facilitate your
Life Cell is endorsed by Westpac Lifesaver
Helicopter Rescue and has been approved by
AMSA for use of the domestic commercial fleet.
