300-berth docks site, to be ready in 10 months

A new 300-berth marina in Falmouth has got the go-ahead.

The marina will be built in the docks area between Queens and Duchy Wharves. A new floating breakwater will also be built to protect the marina from prevailing winds, providing additional berthing for commercial vessels and superyachts.

The site will also have full facilities, including a 300-space car park. Work will begin soon and reportedly will be finished by the time the Tall Ships visit the town in September next year.

David Ring, chief executive of A&P, which is building the marina, said: “This is great news for Falmouth and A&P.”
