This year at the Devon County Show, MDL Marinas will, for the very first time, be exhibiting at the biggest show in Devon. Amongst the cattle showing, cup-cake decorating and a Royal visit, MDL Marinas will be onsite enjoying the sunshine alongside Sunseeker and Bentley. Why not pop by and meet Mike Smith from Torquay Marina who will be manning the stand along with Sunseeker Torquay. Come and speak to us about the benefits of being an MDL Annual Berth Holder as well as our latest benefit of Passeport Escales, offering you even more free cruising destinations off the coast of northwest France.

Illustrating the company’s continued commitment to offering class-leading marinas and the finest customer experience for berth holders, Europe’s largest marina operator, MDL Marinas has recently completed another three refurbishment projects at its UK marinas. The leading operator has invested over £4m to-date, and has plans to continue to invest in the coming months.
Timed for the start of the new boating season, Sparkes Marina in Hayling Island has undergone a full refurbishment of its facilities with berth holders enjoying new toilet, washroom and laundry rooms. Queen Anne’s Battery in Plymouth has also undergone an extensive refurbishment with beautiful modern showers, toilets and washing facilities on-site. The two investments alone total over £500,000.
In addition, Ocean Village Marina in Southampton has seen upgrades to the internal décor, as well as upgraded modern facilities in line with Sparkes and Queen Anne’s Battery marina. All three upgrades have made significant improvements to the popular marinas and will be a very welcome addition to berth holders and visitors this season.
Jon Eads, Chief Operating Officer at MDL Marinas, commented: “We are committed to investing in our marinas and these three projects have transformed the berth holder facilities we offer. As Europe’s leading marina operator we are committed to not standing still and are continually looking at ways to not only improve and update our marinas, but also to ensure our customer service and locations are of the very highest standards. This is why many of our customers have been with us for years, and for us the focus always remains on ensuring our berth holders and visitors continue to get the very best out of their boating.”
Annual berth holders at MDL Marinas this season are set to benefit from being able to access a whole host of boating information at the touch of a button with the launch of the innovative MyMDL system.
MyMDL will now allow annual berth holders to book their Freedom Berthing free visitor nights online, where the system will automatically check availability and confirm the reservation should a visitor berth be available.
For those looking for a longer stay away, the new Berth Swap function allows members to experience another marina by agreeing to swap their berth with another berth holder as part of their Club Outlook membership. MDL Berth Swap is open to annual berth holders at no additional berthing cost, with no restrictions on where users can travel, opening up a whole host of fantastic new cruising grounds to MDL boat owners.
For annual berth holders staying closer to home, MyMDL’s personalised content will also provide users with exclusive, tailored offers from their home marina and marina tenants. Boat owners logging in will also be able to access details of news and events related to their home marina as well as extensive weather forecasting and tide times, invaluable when planning their next cruise.
Dean Smith, Marketing Director at MDL Marinas, commented: “We’re delighted to be able to launch the new MyMDL system, which has been designed to give our berth holders even greater control when it comes to getting the most out of their berth and their Club Outlook membership. This is all about adding value for our customers and gives 24 hour access to a wealth of information and services all at the touch of a button, with easy access to not only the latest news and offers, but also opening up our marina network like never before with the online Freedom Berthing and Berth Swap booking system.”
