Premier announces infrastructure investment
UK: Premier Marinas has earmarked £7.5 million for the start of a £75 million project to redevelop Noss on Dart Marina, which it acquired in 2016.
The project commences with the rebuild and expansion of the marina to include 232 berths, a new boatyard, hard standing for up to 100 boats and a drystack. The plan also contains provision for new marina facilities, a new marina reception, 21 offices and workshops for marine services and a new home for South Devon College’s marine trades courses. The planning application also provides for a 50-room hotel, two restaurants, a spa and 39 residential units.
The company also intends to spend £480,000 reconfiguring a third of the mooring system at Port Solent, Portsmouth, for boats up to 33m (108ft). The new berths will offer boaters wider fairways and upgraded walkways and pontoons.
Premier Marinas will invest over £11 million in its marinas over the coming 12 months. The company owns and operates nine marinas along the English south coast and is part of The Wellcome Trust, a global charitable foundation.
