TALKING SHOP typically

TALKING SHOP typically 10-13m [33-43ft] – slightly smaller than on the English south coast. This is typical of the Clyde throughout although there may be an above average amount of motorboats at Largs,” Houlgrave observes. Visiting boats arrive in all sizes and have included many superyachts, which can be comfortably accommodated on the sheltered dock alongside the sugar sheds. The water is very deep and the only restriction is a 24m (79ft) beam. “We’re ideal for superyachts because we’re so close to Glasgow airport,” he continues. “Owners like the traditions and the culture of Scotland – history, scenery, golf, whisky. And some like to go north and head round to the Baltic.” Safety and security are also essential, especially in the superyacht sector. “The site is really safe. We have excellent CCTV and good security gates and no need for 24 hour patrols although we will probably look at this when our expansion is under serious consideration. We also have a couple of live-aboards and although we don’t encourage this, it’s an extra means of security,” Houlgrave notes. Fuelling is also to hand at the on-site fuel dock and by special arrangement, and a portable pump-out unit is available. JWD has a major oil spill response plan in association with Peel Holdings. With no permanent facilities building currently at JWD it lacks a social centre. The marina helped to fill the gap in the summer months by organising a party for berth holders, and event hosting is definitely on the JWD agenda. “All yacht JWD at night is a scenic and peaceful destination. racing takes place between JWD and Rhu Marina [across the estuary] and this could increase our potential to host events in the future,” Galbraith asserts. Houlgrave picks up, “we’ll be better off when we have better facilities in place but even so we would agree to host events now. We have the space and the capability to do so.” • Advanced mobile boat hoists • Full selection of options available • Dependable and economical performance Kropf Industrial also supplies a full line of hydraulic boat trailers, as well as steel tube floating dock systems and floating breakwaters. 888.480.3777 - November/December 2017 25
