Hoist investment protects family-run marina Following construction of a new boat dock, Amble Marina in the UK has commissioned a new 40 tonne Wise boat hoist. The investment will help secure the future by providing an essential service for 250 plus annual berth holders and hundreds of visiting boats. Amble Marina is a small, family-run business situated on the scenic north Northumberland coast whose customers have relied for many years on local lift out facilities. With the future of these facilities under threat, the marina took action for fear that customers might relocate to other marinas. Managing director Karl Brunton said: “We found ourselves facing a very difficult situation but we are committed to our customers, business and region. This development required the biggest investment we have made in our 25 years and was the most technically challenging due to the geology of the site. We are delighted we have successfully completed the project – it is excellent news for our customers and is fundamental to the longevity and success of the business.” CMP Thames, the main contractor, had the experience and expertise required to complete the project from start to finish and the project was completed on time and to budget. The Marine Management Organisation granted a licence to build in summer 2016 and inspected the work throughout the course of the project ensuring compliance and that necessarily rigorous standards were met upon completion in November 2017. The new dock has a pontoon on each side PRODUCTS & SERVICES Insurance deal for Yacht Havens customers Towergate Insurance has formed a marina partnership with Yacht Havens to give customers discounted insurance, together with exclusive berth holder benefits.

Tim Thornhill, business giving worry free access to any vessel ready for lifting or launching. “Our annual customer satisfaction survey overwhelmingly showed support for the build and this new development ensures we can continue to provide the highest quality service,” Brunton added. Future plans include unit director, said: “Key partnerships like this allow us to get closer to our customers and understand their needs, and to offer them bespoke offering a full range of services to customers in order to assist them with their boat maintenance and repair. The marina aims to have a number of specialist contractors working on-site who offer the high level of knowledge and skill customers require. Email: berth holder benefits. We’re really pleased to be working with Yacht Havens who share similar values, knowledge and expertise.” - January/February 2018 57
