The marina recently experienced a power out caused by an extreme weather event in North Turramurra which went for more than a day, and therefore decided to install a fully automated back-up generator to guard against this issue in the future.
Here is how some of our clients responded to the marina’s initiative. This is just one of the many advantages of being in a privately owned marina.

Dear John, I want to congratulate the approach you, Darren and the team at the marina are taking here. Very quick and decisive to deal with an issue that is not caused by your doing, but despite that you are taking ownership of it and making what is no doubt a significant investment. We like the security of having our boat at Bobbin Head, as well as the support of your excellent and friendly staff. Keep up the great work. Best regards, DH

Hi John, This is a great initiative, and I’m sure will be welcomed by all boat owners. It has certainly been a challenging season this year. On behalf of Lynne and I to you, Nicky, Darren and the team – a big THANKYOU!

Well done John, I’m sure all the marina clients understand that the consequences of last weekend’s weather are unlikely to occur again in a hurry, but the generator is a great initiative. Regards BW

Great initiative, thank you, CD

So why not join the marina that cares…

Richard Humphry AO, "Compass Rose"

Empire Marina at Bobbin Head has provided me with excellent support for over seven years. Top quality professional services at this modern marina makes it easy for my family to continue enjoying what is one of the most pristine environments for boating.

Hamish Macpherson, GB46 “Beluga"

The marina was great during our Sydney visit. Excellent and professional front office staff provided straightforward paperwork and a guaranteed berth at time of booking, were flexible with our arrival and departure dates, and only charged for those nights we used. Facilities are new and clean, the marina is very tidy, and the location is simply stunning. There are also excellent on-site trades (shipwright, marine electrician, marine trimmer) if you have a few things to fix up after a long voyage. We thoroughly recommend Empire Bobbin Head and will return.

Peter Read, “Halekulani”

I have to say that the process of selling our very much loved boat was a pleasurable and hassle free experience, one that I we look forward to repeating again in the future. All in all a very professional and pleasant experience thanks to the team at Empire Boat Sales.

John Della-Pietra, "Tenacious"

It is not the facilities such as power and water to hand that impresses "old salts" like me. Many marinas have these facilities, but the quality of the people who operate and work at Empire Marina.

My wife and I have lived and owned boats in three states and sailed the East coast of Australia extensively over the past 50 years. The true value of Empire Marina Bobbin Head, is the highly experienced management and staff and the quality of work carried out by many of their permanent contractors.
