The latest progress on the development of one of the South West of England’s most exciting marinas will be revealed to visitors to the Southampton International Boatshow from 12th to 21st September.
Proposals for the new 290-berth Port Falmouth Marina, which aims to create a state-of-the-art gateway to the historic seafaring town of Falmouth and the rest of Cornwall, will be on show on stand number B46.
Marina manager Drystan Jones said the proposed marina was the first stage in a major investment programme in Falmouth Docks by A&P Ports and Properties.
“We have planning permission for the development and aim to start construction following the obtaining of a licence required under the Food and Environmental Protection Act,” he said.
“We’ve been receiving an increasing number of enquiries in recent months, and I expect interest at the show to be brisk – in fact, it might be one of the last times people will have the opportunity to sign up for a berth.”
The new marina will transform the area between Queens and Duchy Wharves. A new floating breakwater will also be built to protect the marina from prevailing winds, providing additional berthing for commercial vessels and super-yachts.
