Despite previous information reported, the Noosa Boathouse and Boathouse Marina precinct leasehold has been sold, not, however the Noosa Boathouse restaurant business. Current business owners of nearly 6 years Phil and Sarah Bradford will remain operating their successful 3 level bistro, bar and events business with a long term lease in place, securing the iconic floating dining hub's prominent future and will continue to operate - business as usual.
Phil and Sarah Bradford were excited last week, to extend an invitation to the new landlord to attend their "Line Caught • Grain Finished" lunch event on Friday as part of the official 2019 Noosa Food & Wine Festival. The lunch saw a fantastic collaboration between three talented chefs – Noosa Boathouse's own Shane Bailey, Nick Holloway from NuNu in Palm Cove and TV chef Ben O'Donoghue from Billykart Kitchen, who put together a magnificent 4 course Beef and Seafood feast for the 130 diners.
Contrary to previous articles, local developer Mark Bain was not the final purchaser of the vessel and marina. While Phil and Sarah can't confirm the buyers identity, they are thrilled to have another long term and well respected Noosa local as their landlord and will continue to develop a great relationship moving forward.
With hundreds of pre-booked weddings and events already on the books for the next 18 months, Phil assures all valued Noosa Boathouse couples, clients and guests that there will be absolutely no change to how our weddings and events business will be run with the same applying to the other 4 elements of their business – the restaurant, Little Boaty Coffee Bar, Fish & Chips Takeaway and the Sunset Bar. "We will continue providing the same locally harvested produce, excellent service and wonderful experiences to our guests in all areas of the business."
"We've worked really hard to get a great team in place who have helped us to get the business to where it is today. We are thankful for the ongoing support of both locals and holiday makers alike. Please be assured that it's business as usual here at Noosa Boathouse!" Phil said.
