People always ask; What is the height of the new bridge over the Clarence River? The safe height for yachts to pass underneath is approx 30 metres (you need to arrange to have the old bridge opened to complete the journey). Opening times can be arranged with at least 24 hours notice. So the river is open for business for yachts…all the way to Grafton.
This is the American boat Patriot damaged last week in the lead up to the America’s Cup. The other countries involved, Italy, the UK and hosts New Zealand, all chipped in to get their rival back on the water. What better way to say thanks than with a “band aid” over the wound made up of the flags of the three nations that helped with this great effort. Well done humans!
Yamba is packed and holiday makers are having a ball. The weather has been kind and people are using their boats both on the Clarence and off-shore. The marina is packed right now. If you are looking for a berth please call before you arrive. We will do our best to help. There are lost of dolphins in the river so be careful out there.
Who said the Clarence River wasn’t a superhighway? Look at this brand new Tesla charging station on the banks of the river at Harwood. Onsite at the charming Harwood Hotel the new charging station is just a few seconds off the brand new Pacific Motorway. Just another innovation in the Clarence Valley to bring more tourists to this fabulous area. A short hop up the river from Yamba Marina
We have BP Ultimate fuels at Yamba Marina. Both Ultimate Diesel and Ultimate Unleaded 98 are available seven days a week (except Christmas Day and Boxing Day).
It’s never been a better time to holiday in Australia. You can spend weeks exploring the mighty Clarence River from the Pacific Ocean all the way to Grafton and beyond. Yacht or power boat…it doesn’t matter…..the river is deep and wide…and there are seven pubs along the way…
From mid-September 2020 Yamba Marina will be offering Ultimate Diesel Fuel for its customers. Yamba Marina already carries Ultimate Unleaded Fuel so the arrival of Ultimate Diesel will complete the change of all Marina Fuel to the Ultimate variety. Yamba Marina fuel is supplied by BP and is the highest quality available on the North Coast. Ultimate Diesel improves engine performance and gives greater range per tank.
At dawn the wind was benign. By 3PM it was blowing at 45kmh (25knots for sailors). Better tied up at the dock. Be safe.
From Monday August 10 we will be undertaking some major works on the hardstand and outside the Marina Office area.
We ask that you limit activities in the space identified to avoid any problems. The area will be clearly marked and all safety precautions will bet taken.
The major thing to keep in mind is to keep physical visits to the Marine Office to a minimum as there will be site work going on. Call the marina on 02 6646 9898 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Yamba Marina will be fully operational during the works but will not be providing diesel fuel for approx 5 days. All other services will continue but parts of the hardstand and office entrance will be a work zone.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
You may be aware that the Cruising Yacht Club in Sydney has reported two cases of Covid 19. We must ask all people visiting Yamba Marina to tell us if you have been in a Covid 19 hotspot in the past 14 days. We have had some customers not quite tell the truth about their movements and we cannot stress how important honesty is. If you have been in Victoria or visited a Sydney hotspot area in the past two weeks please do not visit Yamba Marina. We highly recommend to everyone that if you have the slightest symptoms please get tested.
We need to keep the North Coast and Yamba free of this shocking virus. And please be civil to our staff if they enquire about you travel movements. It is for the good of everybody. Thank you.
