Shute Harbour Marina Resort Inundated With Buyers
Opportunities to own a slice of the world’s most sought-after sailing locations are selling fast.
Shute Harbour Marina Resort, the Whitsundays’ first major resort development in over a decade has seen a flurry of eager buyers quick to purchase a rare slice of luxury living in North Queensland.
The development offers a rare opportunity to own waterfront land in one of the world’s most sought-after sailing locations, with marina berths quite literally at the doorstep of the development boating the closes mainland marina access to the famed Whitsunday Islands. Further, Shute Harbour is just 10 kilometres southeast of Airlie Beach, and a mere 25 kilometres from Proserpine and its airport.
With such unparalleled access, and only 58 land and berth packages released in the $350 million development, Shute Harbour has seen $21.5 million in sales contracts issued and over 600 enquiries following the project’s launch to market.
“The Immediate market response to the resort has been incredible. We knew we had something special on our hands here, but we have been simply inundated with genuine interest – it’s been a whirlwind,” says Rob Taylor of Taylors Property Group.
“A large portion of these purchasers are boating enthusiasts who recognise the rarity in such a premier berth location, or those from southern states who have been enticed by the lifestyle offering presented by the resort.”
Once complete, the 41-hectare site of Shute Harbour Marina Resort will encompass a world-class 395-berth marina with individual berths ranging from 10m to 30m on a 99-year lease and private berths ranging from 25m to 45m— cementing the development as the region’s boating mecca and gateway to the idyllic islands of the Whitsundays.
The project will also deliver a 100-plus room resort hotel, including function and meeting rooms, bars, restaurants, swimming pool and undercover parking; and 100 managed apartments with resort club facilities.
Land and berth packages will include private marina facilities to accommodate boats from 25m to 45m and start from $1.75 million. The freehold residential waterfront sites of 440sqm are earmarked for two- and three-storey design concepts.
Expressions of interest are also being taken on future stages which will include marina loft apartments and plaza terrace homes.
Development of the first stage of Shute Harbour Marina Resort, which will include the marina and the stage-one release of land and marina berths, is expected to take two years to complete. Construction is targeted to commence in 12 months.
