Shute Harbour inundated with inquiries following launch to market
The Whitsunday Lakes Trust, $350 million Shute Harbour development has been inundated with enquires, amassing a whopping 520 expressions of interest in just four weeks following its national launch to market.
As the Whitsunday’s first major resort development in over a decade, the stage one release has been met by a swarm of interested buyers, eager to put their name to one of the 58 land and berth packages in one of the most sought-after sailing locations across the world.
Rob Taylor of Taylors Property Group said the latest wave of interest has come off the back of the Sanctuary Cove Boat show which accounted for 10 per cent of the enquiries to date, with the vast majority coming from boating enthusiasts who recognised the 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 Taylor.
“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.”
Once complete, the Shute Harbour Marina Resort will encompass a 395-berth marina with individual berths ranging from 10-metres to 30-metres on a 99-year lease, in addition to private berths ranging from 25-metres to 45-metres.
