The Whitsundays’ first major resort development in over a decade has been inundated with enquiries.
Amassing a whopping 520 expressions of interest in just four weeks following its national launch to market on April 30.
The stage one release of the $350 million Shute Harbour Marina Resort has been met by a barrage of interested buyers eager to put their name to one of the 58 land and berth packages up for grabs in one of the world’s most sought-after sailing locations.
The latest deluge of interest has come off the back of the Sanctuary Cove Boat show which accounted for 10% of the enquiries to date, the vast majority coming from boating enthusiasts who were quick to recognise the rarity and value of large-scale berths in the Whitsundays region.
“The immediate market response to the resort has been incredible. We knew we had something special on our hands here, but we have been simply inundated with genuine interest – it’s been a whirlwind,” said Rob Taylor of Taylors Property Group.
“We’re already in the process of converting many of these enquiries into contracts for our future Shute Harbour Marina Resort residents.
“Many of these buyers have been long awaiting a marina project of this calibre to arrive in the area. Large scale berths are difficult to secure along the coast right now – all nearby marinas are close to capacity for the forthcoming season.”
