Taggs Boat Yard owner says he will leave shipyard in 2019

Taggers Boat Yard is leaving the marina and will be moving to a site in South Sydney.

Owner of Tagg’s Boat Yard, Robert Tagg, told the ABC on Tuesday that he had received permission to move to the site near the city.

He said the site was suitable for his own personal use and that the company would retain a 20 per cent stake in the marinas.

“There’s been a lot of speculation around where we will move,” Mr Tagg said.

“I don’t know that there’s a big rush, there’s no rush.

I’ve been involved with the marins for 25 years, and there’s been some pressure, but there’s always a lot more work to do.”

The boats are good for people who like to have a bit of fun, or have a little bit of adventure.

“If we get a bit more foot traffic, we may even get some people who have been out there for a long time and don’t really like the boatyards.”

Mr Tagg had previously been in talks with the NSW Government about taking on a bigger role in marinas and the State Government had offered to extend its contract.

“We’re looking to go out and find the best location in NSW, and the best site in NSW,” he said.
