King Point Marina is being developed by Sutton Harbour Holdings, and is expected to be fully operational by early August.

The marina will have berths for boats from five to 25 metres, and a two-storey shoreside building containing showers, toilets and a terrace.

The top floor has been set up to house a yacht club or restaurant, and offers views out over Plymouth Sound.

Jason Schofield, chief executive of Plymouth-based Sutton Harbour Holdings, said: “I am delighted to see work beginning on site for what will be an exciting project that will benefit the whole of the Plymouth.

“King Point Marina will… enable more boat owners to experience the excellent sailing waters we have here in the South West, and reinforce Plymouth’s position as one of the UK’s leading marine destinations.”
