PRODUCTS, SERVICES & PEOPLE Heavy-duty Pile Ring option New Zealand company Marinaquip has launched a heavy-duty version of its innovative all-tide, all-weather, monitor-free Pile Ring mooring system. The device keeps lines for boats and watercraft constantly tight by automatically rising and falling with the tides, waves and water levels. Initially available in two sizes to cater for pilings of 400mm (16in) and 550mm (22in) to suit the majority of vessels, the latest PR750 heavy-duty option now provides for piles up to 750mm (29in) and mooring rope sizes up to 50mm (2in), making it suitable for larger yachts and workboats. The system is being utilised extensively throughout Australasia and was introduced into the North American market in 2016, where it has been particularly successful as a costeffective way of reducing boat damage and docking disasters caused by bad weather, storm surges and fast rising flood waters. Designed using multiple components, Pile Ring is easy to carry and can be installed at water level on a tall freestanding pile without the need for lifting gear, or under an existing wharf or dock where access is more restricted.

Key professionals launch marina consultancy Two well-known industry professionals, James Beaver and Bill Green, have formed a ‘next generation’ marina and waterfront consultancy business called Marina Solutions International (MSI). The duo will work with other key industry figures to offer a turnkey service. Bill Green, a former Master Mariner and ex-technical and projects director at Camper & Nicholsons Marinas, has been involved in marina design, build and operation projects for over 30 years. He has worked most recently in the emerging yachting markets in Asia and foresees steady development in this sector. “In the past 24 months or so I have witnessed the South East Asia market taking on an accelerated development rate, and a more considered and sustainable one at that,” he notes. “It’s incredible how much growth and expansion has occurred in such a short space of time. Thanks to certain dedicated individuals lobbying politicians and improved professional services, Asia is now finally embracing Bill Green yachting and yacht tourism, and not only domestically and regionally, as it is now attracting a greater share of the international market.” James Beaver, ex-director of marina commercial services with Moffatt & Nichol and previous chief operating officer at Camper & Nicholsons Marinas, has over 25 years’ industry experience. He has worked on global projects, has extensive knowledge on the development of marina related commercial property and has special insight into the European and Mediterranean markets. He notes that marinas in proven markets also need advice. “Established marinas in prime Mediterranean locations don’t always have the facilities, but they don’t appear to need them to maintain good occupancy levels and command high prices,” he explains. “That said, in order to future-proof a marina, some further infrastructure, services and facilities would be a wise investment, to ensure it retains its appeal and continues to compete in the Med and internationally.” The MSI team includes associates and consultants such as Kemal Saatcioglu, former CEO of D-Marin James Beaver Marinas, and Philip Jones, marinas director at Orascom. Business in Asia is supported by Joseph Wong, who previously partnered with Bill Green for seven years on projects in this region. Together, they are in a strong position to offer professional advice at any stage of a marina’s lifecycle, including operational guidance, business planning and detailed design. James Beaver sums up on MSI strengths: “We regularly travel to marina and yachting hubs all over the world, which presents us with a clear picture of how the global marina market is developing and expanding. This insight enables us to innovate and build-in USPs into our marina designs, whilst ensuring the marina is able to accommodate the yachts of tomorrow in an ever-changing marketplace.” E: 62 - November/December 2018
