Shamrock Quay Announces New £150,000 Investment

Posted: 10th March 2014

As part of MDL’s plans to invest a minimum of £20 million across its 19 UK marinas and boatyards over the next five years, Shamrock Quay is pleased to announce a £150,000 refurbishment of its berth holder facilities. The project is set to be completed by the end of this month, in time for the new boating season.

Demonstrating its commitment to continually improving and investing in all its 19 UK marinas and boatyards, MDL has invested over £14 million across its sites since the start of the economic downturn in 2009. Over £800,000 of this total has been spent at Shamrock Quay, not only on property refurbishment, but also in plant, cradles, dredging, a new hoist, upgraded security and a new launch to assist with free movements for berth holders. MDL’s commitment to these levels of investment reflects the general improvement in the wider economy and a growing level of optimism being seen within the marine industry.

The latest project to refurbish the male and female berth holders’ facilities includes the redesign and upgrade of the existing showers including completely new hot water generation and supplies, upgraded heating, ventilation, toilets and lighting throughout.

The fruits of MDL’s investment in Shamrock Quay are evident, with a full house of office and retail tenants now in place at the marina and a strong pipeline of new enquiries. The site is now home to a diverse range of businesses, from marine specialists such as Fleming Yachts, Oil Spill Response and RIB Shack Marine, to exciting offerings such as hair and beauty specialist Beauty Bay, Tonneville Sound recording studio and bespoke kitchen specialist Inderkitchen. The latest new addition to the marina is Quay Fifteen, the exciting new family owned, family run restaurant where five-star chef Raz and his brother Rocky offer a “fine dining experience without the fuss”.

Jonathan Walcroft, Marina Manager at Shamrock Quay, said: “This latest round of refurbishment is great news for the marina, and further demonstrates MDL’s strong commitment to investing in all its sites over a number of years. We believe the marina is in a really good position to thrive, with its diverse range of businesses, easy access to the city centre and pleasant marine surroundings, and we will continue to plan further refurbishment works over the coming years to maintain our top class facilities.”

All UK property management is handled by a dedicated in-house team and MDL Estates are always keen to build strong relationships with tenants to help both individual businesses and the wider marina flourish.
