Hamble Point Marina to receive £1.2m upgrade

Our popular Hamble Point Marina in Southampton is undergoing a significant upgrade to its facilities. The £1.2m investment will ensure our berth holders, tenants and visitors have access to the very best facilities, helping to enhance their marina experience.

The investment works include refurbishment of the toilet facilities by the Ketch Rigger bar and restaurant. Due for completion this spring, the facilities will see a refreshed layout, PIR operated lighting and ventilation system helping to reduce energy consumption, and a large improvement to the overall look and feel. The current bins adjacent to the toilets will be relocated within a purpose-built bin storage.

There will also be resurfacing works to the main road leading to the dry stack and berth holders’ car park, relining the valley gullies on our large tenant building, enhancing the current central waste compound with an attractive symmetrical façade and high fence lines, as well as new lighting to the area, security cameras and access control.

We are also introducing Meter MACS’ Smart Electricity Technology across the boatyard. The new system will offer berth holders complete control to manage their own electricity account, with 24/7 access for online payments and automatic notifications of any interruptions to the power supply.

With its prime position on the River Hamble within close proximity to the Solent, Hamble Point is one of our busiest marinas, catering to a wide variety of boats of all sizes. The works will ensure the quality of the marina’s facilities are enhanced to the high standard our customers have come to expect.

We strive to provide the best possible experience. Our customers will always be our topmost priority, and so investment in our infrastructure, large or small, is essential to ensuring our high standards continue to be met.

In the pipeline for 2024 includes a new scheme for the marina car park to improve parking and security for our berth holders, tenants and visitors. Additionally, a proposed insulated container village providing workshop units and fishermen stores will offer improved land storage as well as valuable workshop space for new and existing occupiers.

The container is also set to incorporate a significant solar PV scheme, moving us forward with our ambitions around the carbon reduction of our marinas.

A redesign of the berth holders’ facilities near the marina office is also planned. The proposed revamp will double the size of the current facilities and provide individual toilet and shower rooms, along with dedicated family and disabled washrooms. Additionally, PIR operated lighting will be integrated to reduce energy consumption and ensure efficient operation.

As one of Europe’s largest marina groups, we will continue to invest significantly across our network of marinas and products, with £30m allocated for investment over the next five years.
