Construction at the new Frankston Yacht Club is now complete.
The new Yacht Club is a stunning addition to the waterfront precinct, architecturally designed to complement the landscape of the Frankston foreshore and the natural beauty of the bay, boasting a 5 Green Star energy rating, natural timber curve lines, significant decking overlooking the beach and car park facilities.
Council has funded the majority of the $10.7 million project. With thanks to the Australian Government for their contribution of $1.25 million and the Victorian Government which contributed a further $333,020 via the Melbourne Water Living Rivers program.
Council will be going back out to tender to secure an operator to lease the on-site restaurant and café in keeping with the high quality of this facility.
Frankston Yacht Club representative, Commodore Meaghan Densley, said the improved venue means the club will be able to expand the sailing programs on offer to the community.
