A BBQ, bar and live music will entertain while marine businesses open their doors

Chichester Marina’s new £3.5 million boatyard is being officially opened on Saturday, with a ceremony scheduled for 2pm followed by a BBQ, drinks and live entertainment.

During the ceremony, a specially made plaque will be unveiled on the boatyard building by Chichester Harbour Conservancy director Siún Cranny alongside Premier Marinas directors and local council members.

Marine businesses in the boatyard will be opening their doors and putting on special events, while Chichester Sea School will be running a free pilotage and passage planning workshop at onsite Chichester Yacht Club.

Companies including Garmin, Navico, Raymarine and Waeco will be present showcasing their products.

The event will also feature a raffle in aid of Premier’s chosen charity, the Rainbow Centre, with prizes donated by businesses based in the boatyard.
