Welsh marina specialists acquire Burry Port
The Marine & Property Group Ltd have announced the acquisition of Burry Port Marina.
Offering 450 berths, adjacent to Pembrey County Park and within easy reach of the Gower Peninsula and Tenby, Burry Port marina is the latest addition to the company’s portfolio.
The marina complements the company’s existing marina locations in Cardiff, Aberystwyth and Port Dinorwic, and offers an opportunity for the marina to benefit from the company’s experience in marina development and management.
The acquisition of Burry Port marina, follows on from the successful water injection dredging campaign carried out by the company at the marina to improve the access into and around the harbour.
The Marine & Property Group Ltd have been working closely with Carmarthenshire Council and presented a long-term investment programme to develop the marina into a first-class facility.
The company’s plans include a rolling dredging programme ensuring facilities are accessible and optimal.
In addition, the company has plans for a new marina building with high standard toilets and showers and a bar/coffee shop.
As part of the agreement, the dock walls will be renovated by Carmarthenshire Council.
The company will be working with and supporting local businesses to provide these services.
These include support for all types of inboard and outboard engines and a range of specialist services including insurance repairs, Hot Vac osmosis treatment, Dek-King Dealer, 3M Gelcare Centre and Approved Awlgrip and International Application Centre.
Director Christopher Odling-Smee said: “We are excited to be working closely with Carmarthenshire Council to help develop Burry Port Marina into a first-class facility and a sustainable destination, alongside their greater initiative to develop the landside area adjacent to the marina.
“The planned creation of a leisure quarter and residential development at Burry Port will greatly complement our plans for the marina.”
