Andy Osman CMM, General Manager said: “Many of our longstanding berth holders have been waiting for the new marina to be built, some for over ten years and because of this we would like to assure everyone that as a marina owner and operator, the replacement of the floating marina and the facilities that serve it are our primary focus. Specialist contractors Walcon Marine have been awarded the contract and weather permitting, plan to complete the works for the start of the 2021 boating season.”
Premier Marinas is delighted to announce that the construction of the new floating marina at Noss on Dart Marina has begun. This six month project marks an exciting phase of the redevelopment of the site and will involve driving over 100 new piles into the river bed to secure the new pontoons and general marina infrastructure.
Walcon Marine is now onsite and have started the phase 1 demolition and construction works, including the installation of the new inner walkways and what will become pontoon E and part of pontoon J. Once this phase has been completed, the marina team will temporarily relocate some berth holder boats onto the new sections whilst the Walcon team remove parts of the old pontoon to make way for phase 2, which will involve the construction of pontoons F and G.
Following this, the next major phases of the project will include: phase 3 – the construction of pontoons H and J; phase 4 – the construction of the additional walkways, which will ultimately lead to Premier’s dedicated water taxi and fuel pontoon berth; and phase 5 – the construction of pontoons A, B, C and D. The new £3.5m floating marina will provide a finger pontoon for each boat and rafting out will be a thing of the past.
