Pacific Pontoon & Pier is a wholly Australian-owned company whose head office is based on the Gold Coast, Queensland. The Gold Coast has historically been the centre of the booming Australian boating industry, presenting a water-based lifestyle in a perfect location. Waterfront living has continued to be highly sought after and has driven the growth of the marine industry world-wide.
Pacific Pontoon & Pier has grown through innovation, research and development, to be arguably the largest marina builder in Australia in recent years, developing a product range that has revolutionised marina construction, supplying a low-maintenance, high density and aesthetically pleasing marina product. The proof of the success of the system is that three other marina manufacturers have copied parts of the design. Whether Pacific Pontoon & Pier's client requires a residential pontoon or a world-class marina, they're ensured that they're receiving 1st class technology.
25 years ago the founder of Pacific Pontoon & Pier (PPP), Bill Bourke, could see the need to move away from the waler-thru-rod design that then dominated the marina construction industry in Australia. Bill set out to design a system, which he succeeded in patenting (patent number 2003262204), that used low-maintenance and high-durability construction materials and methodologies. The ambition was to develop a system that would deliver a design life of 30 years without major and expensive overhauls or regular thru-rod tightening.This system has been further developed over the past 25 years, with improvements and details that can only come with experience.
The Gold Coast office includes a well-equipped design department and all design work and layout detail is still overseen by Bill to this day, ensuring every client obtains the full benefit of the company's 25 years of experience. The company has acquired its own fleet of piling rigs and an impressive list of plant and equipment. 25 years, 55 marinas, and over 8000 marina pens later, Pacific Pontoon & Pier are the quiet achievers of the Australian marina industry and have proven that there really is 'a new way of building marinas'; marinas that are economical and are built to last.
Besides Australia, Pacific Pontoon & Pier also service the marina construction markets in South Korea, South East Asia and United Arab Emirates.
