Breaking News - Sydney City Marine Under New Ownership
Effective this week, well-known yachtsman Syd Fischer’s Australian Corporate Holdings has completed the purchase of the state-of-the-art Sydney City Marine boat-maintenance facility.
Executive chairman of Australian Corporate Holdings, Fischer OBE, is renowned for his hands-on approach to business and also for his many sporting achievements. Twice recognised as Australian Yachtsman of the Year and three times as Ocean Racer of the Year, he has competed in more than 40 Sydney Hobart yacht races, five America’s Cup challenges and was inducted into the NSW Sports Hall of Fame in 2002.
“With our long and successful history in boatbuilding and maintenance, my team and I see this as an ideal opportunity to give
and competent service to all boat owners. Sydney City Marine is the best facility in Australia and we understand what owners want — good, efficient, personalised service,” said Fischer.
Located under the ANZAC Bridge, Sydney City Marine is one of the most advanced boat repair and maintenance facilities in Australia, with the technology and capacity to handle repairs and maintenance for a wide range of marine craft from recreational power and sailing boats, to superyachts and commercial vessels.
With up to 600 tonnes in lift capacity, an enormous hardstand area and undercover facilities, fast all-weather turnaround ensures minimum downtime for any boat. Boat repairs and maintenance can be carried out 24/7 and the site is centrally located with easy road access and onsite trade persons.
Environmental controls at Sydney City Marine are also world class. The two purpose-built paint sheds, with a total size of 875m², utilise advanced boat-painting technology ensuring 90 per cent of the paint sprayed reaches the boat’s surface, while any airborne paint particles are filtered through sophisticated extraction filters. The entire site is sealed to prevent any seepage into the ground or harbour, and all water used in cleaning is sent to an on-site water treatment plant. A 300,000lt rainwater tank also ensures the facility is self-sufficient and rigorous noise dampening techniques control any extraneous industrial sounds.
The Sydney City Marine address is James Craig Road, Rozelle, NSW, 2039, phone (02) 8572 7800; (02) 8572 7878 or visit www.sydneycitymarine.com.au
