Lakes Marina Projects is on track to open the Frankton Marina in the middle of next month. LMP partner Alan Kirker, of Queenstown, said the first boat had been docked in the marina for a few weeks to test it, before it was opened to the public.

The $20million project has been almost a decade in the making and will feature 187 floating berths, 17 floating sheds, a breakwater, a 156-space car park and other structures at Sugar Lane.

Mr Kirker said the sheds would not be completed until February or March next year, as tenants had yet to be confirmed.

Mr Kirker is a 10% partner of LMP, and Iranian-born entrepreneurs and brothers Iraj and Nasser Barabi own the remaining 90% of the company.

Work on the development, which followed an agreement with landholder the Queenstown Lakes District Council, started in November 2017.
