Work begins on Plymouth's King Point Marina
Work has begun on a new 171-berth marina in Plymouth that will become the centerpiece of the redevelopment of the city’s Millbay area.
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.”
