Practical Boat Owner - - News -

A 333-berth float­ing ma­rina and bridge­head build­ing have been an­nounced as part of £8 mil­lion re­gen­er­a­tion plans for Pre­mier Mari­nas’ Swan­wick site.

The de­vel­op­ment will re­sult in 59 ex­tra berths for 6m-40m boats, with all pon­toons run­ning east to west. Pre­mier said this will al­low cus­tomers to have a berth mea­sur­ing at least the length of their boat, and will make berthing safer and eas­ier. All of the pon­toons will be ac­cessed via a sin­gle cen­tral bridge­head, which will have a new build­ing hous­ing cus­tomer ser­vices and other fa­cil­i­ties. A new pav­il­ion build­ing for boat sales and ma­rina busi­nesses is also planned, sub­ject to plan­ning per­mis­sion. The work will be car­ried out in two phases, be­gin­ning in Oc­to­ber 2018.

Work will start on the Swan­wick scheme in Oc­to­ber
