Construction of our second commercial building, which will offer 12 units to a range of marine service businesses, has been a main focus for the team this month. The units are on track to be finished and open by the end of the summer.
The beginning of 2022 also saw the steel framework for the new Marina Control Building erected - something we are really excited about! The marina reception, luxury berth holder facilities, a launderette, berth holders' lounge and a small deli café will all be housed in the building at the core of the new marina complex.
"This year is certainly delivering some significant milestones!” Andy Osman CMM, General Manager said: “Following incredible efforts from the whole team, this month we have been able to lift the first boat into our new boatyard using the new 75 ton boat hoist.
"The boatyard team staff are doing ongoing training to drive the new lifting equipment and we will be slowly ramping up the operation over the coming weeks. Please bear with us as we get up to full speed!”
As the boatyard operation ramps up, priority will be given to Noss on Dart berth holders with “pit stop” lifting options offered to get as many boats lifted and back into the water before the season really gets going. The new dry stack service has also opened for business this month and the first wave of new customers have arrived and their boats have been lifted into their new home.
