We chose this berth at MBTBC Marina for the following reasons:

1. Secure long term investment; (many SM superfunds own berths at MBTBC);
2. It is highly unlikely that more berths will be built within Manly Harbour;
3. MBTBC Marina has best location to dock and live aboard (if available) when cruising stops;
4. Berth owners may rent their berth privately while berth is unoccupied;

9. MBTBC Marina Inc owns MBTBC Marina + MBTBC Club House with trailer boat parking, launching ramps and restaurant.
10. Berth V14 is the last on the Vee finger, so has a 2mtr side dock with unobstructed views instead of 1.5 mtr side dock and no view;
11. MBTBC Marina Inc is pet friendly;
12. There are approximately 2,200 berths within Manly Harbour of which 450 belong to MBTBC Inc.

When buying the berth, we looked at marinas from Whitsundays to Southport and MBTBC was way and above the best because:

1. Manly is a great marine base for coastal cruising north to the tropical islands or south to Tasmania;
2. Moreton Bay is one of the best, protected, exploring, sailing, boating, swimming and fishing bays close to a capital city;
3. Manly Harbour channel is navigable at LAT for deep draft vessel;
4. Inland waterway connects Moreton Bay to Gold Coast, navigatable by deep draft vessel;
5. MBTBC Marina is cyclone rated for insurance purposes and geographically below the cyclone zones;
6. From berth V14, you can walk to all amenities, unlike some marinas requiring a car, bike or scooter to access the amenities;
7. MBTBC has lift and yard facilities and with no embedded/obligatory trade services rules; however all trades have marina access;
8. MBTBC is 30 minutes' drive to Brisbane Airport and 25 minutes to Brisbane CBD;
9. The marina is 10 minutes' drive to plaza shopping centre, Bunnings, and most marine trades centres;
10. Walk into Manly Village for Muir's chandlery, IGA, local shops, cafes, restaurants, doctors, dentists, veterinaries.
11. Hospital, ancillary medical services, police, libaries and schools are within the Manly and Wynnum district.
12. The Moreton Bay foreshore has a 10 km sealed cycle and walkway, children's park, fresh and saltwater pool, public BBOs.
