Aquarama Marina originally built back in the 1960’s was just a small fuel stop with limited pens and a slipway. Completely re-developed in 1985 into a fully faceted marina with 210 pens and a 50 stacker boat rack – the first boat stacker to be build Western Australia and remained the only one for many years until boat stackers became the obvious solution to boat storage with the short supply of accessible land to store boats near the water. The marina offers a variety of services to benefit our clients with in-house businesses like; Mechanical repairs, a boats sales office, public slipway, detailing & repairs, boat course training centre and a restaurant. Situated only 20 minutes up-river from the Fremantle Port we are just a short cruise to the Indian ocean and beyond where you’ll find the pristine waters of Rottnest Island. The staff at Aquarama pride ourselves on great service to all our clients, a reputation we’ve built up over many years in the marine industry.
