MA Financial Group’s MA Marina Fund confirms completion of its acquisition of East Coast
Marina (ECM) in Manly, Queensland. The marina will expand the Fund’s portfolio to 13 high
quality marina locations and will form part of the d’Albora network – the largest premium
marina and hospitality network in the southern hemisphere.

East Coast Marina is located approximately 20kms from Brisbane’s CBD and within the
Manly Boat Harbour which is Australia’s largest small-boat harbour. The marina will add 535
additional berths to the d’Albora portfolio including 295 wet berths and 240 premium dry
storage racks. Additional facilities include a full-service boatyard for vessel maintenance,
commercial tenancies, waterfront dining, onsite marina office and ample dedicated car

In addition to the scale and quality of on-site facilities, East Coast Marina has the benefit of
a significant investment in water recycling and catchment facilities for boat washing and
landscape irrigation and nearly 300 solar panels generating renewable energy for the site.
“This latest addition to the network in Southeast Queensland will provide even more
opportunity for our brand, it will allow d’Albora services and customer benefits to be
experienced by more of the Australian boating public,” said Julien Pouteau – Managing
Director, d’Albora.

Joint CEO of MA Financial, Julian Biggins, said “We are delighted with the acquisition of East
Coast Marina. The purchase aligns with the MA Marina Fund’s growth objectives and is
driven by the significant investor demand for exposure to alternative real estate assets.”
d’Albora is Australia’s largest full-service marina network, offering premium marine services
and benefits to its customers along the east coast in QLD, NSW, and VIC.
