Lay-up capacity at Mylor Yacht Harbour is being increased by 21% with the creation of 90 additional boat storage spaces at the top of the valley.
The £95k project is scheduled for completion by the end of the month, in time to take full advantage of winter lay-up requirements.
Covering a two-acre site, the project has involved detailed planning permission and the movement of hundreds of tons of earth to create the flat hard standing area for boat lay-up.
The new shore berths, developed over the last four months, will have full access to electricity and water, with sophisticated security safeguards including comprehensive CCTV coverage and lighting.
“This latest investment brings our lay-up capacity to a total of 510 boat spaces,” said Mylor Yacht Harbour owner Roger Graffy.
“Boat owners using this extended facility over the winter will also have immediate access to our full range of facilities and services for annual maintenance, shipwrighting, GRP repairs, bespoke fittings, engineering and electrical work.”
He added: “Demand for Mylor Yacht Harbour’s services is at an all-time high and we are constantly reinvesting in upgrades and additions to ensure that our customers continue to enjoy the best possible facilities and service.”
Earlier this year, the company completed a £200k development programme that included raising the level of the car park and a facelift for the shower and toilet block used by berth holders and visiting yachtspeople.
