Under blue skies in beautiful autumn weather the marina is a great place to forget about worldly problems. You can work on your own boat at your own pace and social distancing is not a problem. We are of course at all times being very careful to abide by the rules set by Government. When the restrictions are released we think things will move pretty quickly….boats will move around to get back home or to make Yamba home in the future.

It’s a good time right now to book time on the hardstand. Call Graham and he will give you his best deal during May and June.


Yamba Marina is open for business. We have again been advised by the NSW State Government that we are allowed to operate as normal (providing we undertake appropriate safeguards). Of course we do that. The ability to keep boats safe and operational is a benefit to all.

Our handstand is open. Our travel-lift is operational. Marina marine service tenants are largely operating as normal.  Please keep in touch as we want to help you with your requirements.

We are still operational at Yamba Marina. As we supply fuel and services to the Police, NSW Maritime and Marine Rescue we need to be open as an essential service. Our hardstand yard is operating under strict rules of social distancing and regular disinfecting. All facilities are disinfected on a regular basis and access to the marina is restricted to boat owners only. We are NOT allowing boats to berth from interstate under any circumstances. The Thrifty Hire Car business continues to operate, again under strict rules and protocols.

If you are staying on your boat try this new long-life milk from Norco. Screw top makes it easy to store. We have them in the kiosk.

A handy little thing to have when you run out of the fresh stuff……

NOTE; Someone said  “That’s a weird news item”. We said; “Not if you are on your boat and the only thing your need is milk for your tea or coffee.  200ml re-sealable containers…..just $1.50 each!!!!!


We are getting calls from boats travelling the coast. If you are a boat coming from a NSW port you are welcome at Yamba Marina under current restrictions. However if you are travelling from interstate by water, you cannot berth at Yamba Marina unless you have undergone 14 days isolation on anchor in the Clarence River. If you arrive from interstate you CANNOT get off your boat for 14 days after arrival. These restrictions are being controlled by NSW Police.

To be clear, boats from NSW waters are welcome at Yamba Marina. However social distancing and all other measures for health and hygiene must be observed. Visitors are not encouraged on the marina and all vessel movements are monitored. No social gatherings on boats are allowed. Please do the right thing.
