The regulatory and management frameworks that sit across waterways and adjacent land are complex, and the interests of stakeholders are often conflicting. Good things don’t come easy in this space.
Estuary Partners engage to understand objectives, opportunities, and constraints. We build a draft game-plan with clients and key partners, then calibrate our approach with insight gained from decades of combined yet varied experience.
When it comes to delivery, we are experienced in stakeholder and government engagement and our network empowers us to form sharp and effective teams

Estuary Partners is always on the lookout for new and different ways to operate efficiently, maximise safety and environmental outcomes, and drive collaboration between industry, regulators, and waterway users.
In 2021 David Gore and Alan Barrett acquired Marina Focus from MSL Solutions.
Building on more than a decade observing and advising on the evolving needs of yacht clubs, marinas, and harbour managers in the region, the pair have formed InFocus Software in Sydney to refresh, renew, and reinvigorate the famous Marina Management System (MMS) and deliver new features and functionality.
Estuary Partners now incorporates Environmental Dynamics – the boating industry-specialist environmental consultancy established by Tony Griffin in 2005.
Tony was instrumental in the development of Environment Health and Safety (EHS) best practice for the boating industry and authored the definitive guidance document for boat storage and servicing facilities “Environmental Action for Marinas Boatsheds and Slipways”
After many years collaborating within the Boating Industry Association, Tony and Alan have formed a partnership to deliver relevant and practical EHS support to boating industry stakeholders and authorities alike.
