Expressions of Interest - Frankton Marina Development

Expressions of Interest are called for from suitably experienced marina developers for a proposed commercial development of the Frankton Marina near Queenstown, Lake Wakatipu. 

The proposal comprises marina berths supported by facilities such as carparks, marine related commercial activities, landscaping, etc.  The site is located at the Frankton Marina Reserve, Frankton Arm, Lake Wakatipu at the entry to Queenstown.

This is an opportunity to become involved in a premier destination resort where there is an unrealised demand for quality marina facilities at a very prominent location.

The selected marina developer will be given the opportunity to enter into a reserve lease agreement and a development agreement with the Queenstown Lakes District Council.  The marina developer will be responsible for gaining all consents and if applicable a lake bed lease from LINZ.  Sales and leases for the berths will be the responsibility of the marina developer, subject to the terms and conditions to be determined by Council.

Expressions of Interest close with the Chief Executive, Queenstown Lakes District Council, Private Bag 50072, Queenstown on Monday 19 March 2012.

Enquiries should be directed to Ken Gousmett, 027 229 6012 or

A package of information including the Development Brief is available on Council’s web site or will be sent on request to interested parties.  Please email reference Frankton Marina Development.
