“Customers will enjoy the new location which offers affordable and stylish furniture. Since the 1970s, Amart Furniture has had a strong presence in Queensland. Our store in Warana continues to be one of our busiest.”

World Gym co-owner Benny Elias said it’s the fitness brand’s first location on the Sunshine Coast and 28th nationally.

“Over 2000 people have already pre-registered to join us, which is a new record for the business and a phenomenal result. More than $3 million has been spent on the state-of-the-art facility, which is also the first in Australia to include an outdoor Ninja section,” he said.

Noosa Boathouse marina sells for $4 million



Noosa Boathouse marina sells for $4 million (1)

An iconic waterfront property in Noosaville has sold to a local investor for $4 million.

The Noosa Marina was sold following a six-month campaign after receiving “multiple offers”, according to the agent Tom Forde, of Forde Properties.

The marina was sold with 14 tenants in place.
The property features the Boathouse floating restaurant – a three-level restaurant incorporating a 120-seat conference facility and a rooftop cocktail bar.

Mr Forde said that the marina was unique among Noosa properties because of its location, describing the asset as “irreplaceable”.

The property sits on a pier over the Noosa River and contains 14 tenancies – consisting of nine marina berths and five tenancies within the boathouse complex.

“It’s probably the best waterfront location in Noosa,” Mr Forde said. “It has incredible views.”

The property had originally been listed with a price guide of $4.5 million.

The mix of tenancies – ranging from charter companies to retail operators – was a draw card for the new owner, providing a low risk, diversified investment, Mr Forde said.

The tenancies are currently generating a combined net annual income of $278,336.83 resulting in a net passing yield of 6.96 per cent.

He said that the Noosa commercial market was going strong, driven in part by out-of-town buyers seeking stronger yielding properties than could be found in major southern markets, with the majority of the town’s commercial stock owned by ‘absent owners’.

“Queensland [in general] offers higher yields than lower states,” Mr Forde said.
