Premier Marinas Acquires Sandpiper II
Noss-on-Dart Marina has purchased Sandpiper II in preparation to run a designated water taxi service for berth holders and visitors in the future. Sandpiper II, a Cygnus 21, is a well-known local boat that has operated as a water taxi on the River Dart for many years.
Introducing a water taxi service is a fundamental part of Premier’s planning application for Noss on Dart Marina; this £30,000 investment will improve water access between Dartmouth and Noss-on-Dart Marina. Sandpiper II is licensed to carry 12 passengers at a time.
Sandpiper II arrived at the South Coast marina late in November where she will undergo various maintenance tasks to revitalise her and bring her up to the Premier standard.
Andy Osman CMM, General Manager at Noss on Dart Marina, said: “We are delighted to have secured a local boat to begin our Water Taxi service. She has a great history of operating on the Dart and will hopefully become an integral part of our services at Noss for many years to come.”
