Redesign completes at Windermere Quays
With its new pier and reconfigured original mooring system, Windermere Quays Marina now meets the needs of existing and future customers.
Lake Windermere in Cumbria, the largest natural lake in England, is one of the country’s prime tourist spots. Surrounded by mountain peaks and picturesque villages, over time the lake has become a magnet for watersports enthusiasts. Windermere Quays Marina, originally built in the Lake District National Park’s key town of Bowness-on-Windermere from 2004 to 2006 by Walcon, has now been reconfigured and extended in a development designed and managed by Marina Projects.
“The increasing size of boats on Windermere as well as greater overall demand required us to update our marina,” said Grahame Armer, managing director of Windermere Aquatics, the parent company of Windermere Quays Marina. “We have increased the number of berths from 184 to 260, with an emphasis on having more capacity for boats in the 9 to 15m (30 to 50ft) range. The overall footprint, including the moorings, has doubled to allow more space for the larger boats to manoeuvre.”
