Port Navas Yacht Club, the only privately-owned yacht club on the Helford River, is under new ownership.
The club has been purchased by Giles Williams, whose family has strong roots in the area and is well known in the community.
Ben Davies from Savills, which marketed the property, said: “This property offered a once in a lifetime opportunity for someone with a love of boating to buy their very own yacht club and it was a chance that the buyer could not resist.
“The new owner has chosen to keep it as a yacht club with waterfront bistro, moorings and pontoon berths alongside residential waterside apartments, which will come as a great relief to the Club’s members and local residents.”
The Helford River and estuaries continue to offer safe swimming and sailing facilities from a sheltered inlet from which to explore the coast, much of which is owned and protected by the National Trust.
