marina berth in advance or finding one at the
last minute, any where in Australia.

to stop. With a couple of clicks your marina
berth is guaranteed and the dockmaster has
your details seamlessly.

making it easier and enjoyable for boat owners
to get more use of their boats with a lot less
hassle,” say Marina Exchange owners, Alister
Copley and Carl Crafoord.
