The marina operator has joined forces with Quay Marinas, creating a network of 11 sites across the UK
Two of the biggest names in the UK marina sector have agreed a merger deal, which will complete within three months and spark a £10million investment in new facilities over the next five years.
Dean & Reddyhoff and Quay Marinas operate 11 sites between them and by joining forces the new, as yet unnamed, business will become the second-largest marina chain in the country with 4,000 berths and 150 members of staff.
Although the deal will take until the end of the summer to complete, berth-holders can immediately benefit from free nights at any other location in the group as well as the option for berth swaps.
Michael Prideaux, managing director of Dean & Reddyhoff, said: “By merging with Quay Marinas, we will be bringing together the strengths of both companies and our joint ambition is to make our marinas the destination of choice for all types of boaters in the UK, across the whole of the UK.”
Simon Haigh, managing director of Quay Marinas, added: “We are confident that our visitors and berth holders can look forward to us making it even easier for them to spend time out on the water. Whether they are cruising, racing, fishing or diving, behind the scenes we’ll be working hard to make sure that our new company puts what our customers want at the heart of our business.”
