Superior Puts Its Stamp On The Seychelles

Superior recently completed work on a boutique marina on an exclusive and remote island in the Seychelles.

 

Frégate Island Private is an idyllic community with 16 grand residences, and home to beaches that frequently make the “Most Beautiful Beach in the World” List.

 

It is also a haven for Giant Aldabra Tortoises, the endangered Hawksbill Turtle and hundreds of species of birds. Frégate Island is proud of its record of achievement in saving many species of bird and marine life from extinction, as well as rehabilitating indigenous forest.

 

Superior manufactured the pontoon components in its Arundel facility on Queensland’s Gold Coast, and then shipped them to the Island, which is 30 nautical miles from the Port of Victoria on Mahé, the largest island in the Seychelles.

 

As Phil Hudson, International Sales Manager explains: “We installed a Capri marina system that replaces a 15 year-old steel monster. It will berth four to six boats, privately owned yachts and charter yachts, depending on the size of the vessels.”

 

There were several challenges involved in the project, including the site.

 

“Building a pontoon on a remote island was a long process from initial briefing to handover. It all went very smoothly and it was a privilege to work with Wayne Kafcsak, the general manager who was very happy with the result.”
