Windermere Quays to be reconfigured UK: Marina Projects is managing a £1 million reconfiguration and extension of Windermere Quays Marina, Lake Windermere, on behalf of owners Windermere Aquatic. The current construction work follows an extensive design and approvals process undertaken by Marina Projects to secure necessary consents, which included the negotiation of a new lease for the extended marina. The planning approval required the implementation of a detailed consultation strategy with key stakeholders and regulators, as well as the commissioning of specialist studies into navigation and marina design. The project forms part of a wider regeneration strategy for the Bownesson-Windermere area and will include a large expansion of berth numbers to keep pace with market demand and evolving vessel sizes. Phase one sees the marina reconfigured from 180 to 260 berths and notable design improvements made to pile restraints to accommodate extreme lake level rise. Specialist contractors Walcon Marine and Rolec In 2014, Bellingham completed A-dock, adding 14 slips to the facility, and augmented this with B-dock in November 2016, with a further 15 slips. The new B-dock caters for boats up to 75ft (23m) with special accommodation for vessels up to 95ft (29m). An additional 460ft (140m) of side tie floating dock was built for transient boat traffic. This space is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. The docks have some special features, one of which is the overwater promenade that allows boaters and non-boaters alike to experience the joys of the water up close. The walkway itself is 400ft (122m) long ending in a 15 x 30ft (4.5 x 9m) platform that acts Services were appointed to complete the construction works. Walcon is installing System 21 and Waliflote pontoons, and Rolec supplying Quantum pedestals and bespoke lighting throughout the marina. Work is scheduled to complete in June in readiness for the peak summer boating season.

The marina is located in a deep water basin on the Caloosahatchee River, with direct access to the Gulf of Mexico and Intracoastal Waterway. Surrounded by a high-end residential community with excellent amenities, the marina is proud to emphasise that 90% of its slips are open to the public. as a viewing deck and even a venue for small wedding ceremonies. No detail was overlooked when designing the marina. Grey composite trims are added to the dock frames and tops of the walers to match the light grey composite decking used on the promenade. Each new pier has concealed pump-out, and cables for the power pedestals are concealed under stainless steel plates. Tarpon Point is a full-service, 5-star marina that offers a resort-style swimming pool, kayak and paddleboard rentals, as well as a private club house and ships store with toilets and shower facilities. There is also a collection of top end boutiques and restaurants on the premises.
