Gold Coast Marine Project
The Gold Coast Marine Precinct (GCMP) is the major marine industry industrial area within Gold Coast City dedicated to manufacture, servicing/repairs and refits of recreational boats.
Encompassing an area of approximately 250 hectares (taking in planning Stages One and Two) the Precinct is located on the Coomera River, approximately 15 kms from Surfers Paradise with direct water access to Moreton Bay and the Pacific Ocean.
The Pacific Motorway (M1) is only one kilometre west of the precinct and provides access to the Brisbane CBD and Airport within 40 minutes drive time.
The Brisbane Gold Coast Rail Line passes through the precinct with the Coomera Rail station just 600 metres from the precinct northern boundary.
To date, approximately 60 hectares of Stage One of the project has been developed with marine industry uses.
An estimated $120 Million has been invested by the private sector to develop this area Major private sector companies established in the Precinct include the Gold Coast City Marine Complex, Riviera Marine, Maritimo Offshore, Quintrex, Perry Catamarans and Mercury Marine.
The Precinct currently contains 60 individual businesses employing an estimated 2500 people with virtually all of these new jobs created as an outcome of the establishment of the Precinct.
City of Gold Coast's estimate is that the ultimate development of the Precinct could conservatively yield 5000 jobs.
