Marina Berths in Darwin, NT, Australia

I would be grateful for any info on marinas in Darwin that could handle a catamaran 14.3 meters long & 7.2 m wide.

I will now answer my own query

After searching for marinas in darwin, I found there were three - Cullen Bay, Tipperary waters & one other (oops, senior moment)
I emailed them and there are NO \ none \ zilch multihull berths available for rent.
Visiting multihulls anchor out in Sadgrove Creek in the wet season. Ther you go - get out there with the crocs & sandflies, you multihuller.

Now how I am going to tell the admiral this news??

We were on the hook out the front of the yacht club in the dry season for a week or so. A multihull would be better because you can park closer is... we were hundreds and hundreds of meters out.

Nic snapped this snap... I'm stuffed how she could make that mud splattered hell hole look so good.

At low tide the dinghy had to come up the mud HUNDREDS of meters!
