A very happy 2010 to you all and welcome to our January E news which is very timely as we are thrilled to extend a very warm welcome to two new businesses at the marina.

Glen and Anne Forrest and their new boat hire business Soldiers Point Boat Hire commenced just before Christmas and their kiosk will be up and running at the marina from mid-February. Click on their story for all details on their hire boats.

Tim Matheoda is at the helm of a new boat brokerage Maurie Drent Boat Services ... MDBS Port Stephens. Please click on the story below to read all about Tim's new business.

Since our last E News we've been having undergoing a minor facelift at the marina - we hope you like the results!   We've also had a slatted fence built to enclose the slipway and a new water treatment station will now capture and filter the used water (antifoul etc) from the slipway.  And make sure you check out the new plasma screen on the wall near The ATM which will display upcoming events and other useful information.
Hope to see you all soon and happy boating

Soldiers Point Marina Manager

Well known boating couple Glen and Anne Forrest have opened Soldiers Point Boat Hire with the latest and newest boats available in the bay.
Complimentary Boat Handling Clinic for Couples (and singles!)

This is an ideal opportunity for couples to review, revise and re-examine their skills, knowledge and confidence together, in our specialised and personal boat handling clinic.  This clinic for Soldiers Point Marina boatowners covers best boating practices, boat manoeuvring, caring for your boat, and great tips on boating safety, all under the guidance of boating legend Leif Albertson and will be held on Saturday, 3rd April 2010. Leif will run a clinic from 10.30am - 1pm and in the afternoon he will be happy to visit individual boat owners on their boats for futher education.  Bookings are essential, phone Darrell or Jim on 0249827445 or call in and see them at the Marina Office

Soldiers Point Marina...
New Calendar Pin Up

Bellingham Marine is one of the largest builders of prestigious marinas in the world so it was a thrill to recently be advised that Soldiers Point Marina had been selected to be on the front cover of their very first calendar. Photos were submitted by marinas from all over the world, however it was a stunning night time photo of the marina by local photographer Brent Mail that saw us take out the top honour.

"The Wedding"

Following our story in the last e-newsletter about the engagement of Lisa and Nick from The Deck we have had a lot of enquires about their "big day". A traditional Greek wedding was held in Nelson Bay followed by a reception for over 120 family and friends at The Deck. As usual with the big Papas family a wonderful happy day (and night) was had by all. Congratulations to you both.
Marina Christmas Cocktail Party
It was wonderful to see many of our loyal marina customers under the one roof, with many meeting each other officially for the first time at the inaugural Soldiers Point Marina Christmas Party held at The Point Restaurant. It was a beautiful afternoon and everyone was in a festive mood. Thanks to Paul and Julie for their warm hospitality.
