The historic docks - located by Tower Bridge and the Tower of London - are due to undergo a careful refurbishment and restoration programme, which will see the marina re-launched later this year under the Camper & Nicholsons brand with 170 new berths for vessels up to 40m (131ft).

Dan Hughes, C&N business development director, commented: “We have worked closely with Blackstone on a new vision for the Docks, to develop a genuinely international marina as part of a thriving waterside community in the centre of one of the world’s greatest cities. The plans include an improved marina layout and berth plan, better facilities both ashore and afloat, and an overall improvement to the marina experience.” C&N Marinas marketing director, Sean Purdy, added: “The vision for the marina is for it to become a thriving hub of yachting and social activity for London - ‘the capital of the world’. As this 24-hour city adapts to the needs and demands of its ever-growing international business population, we see St Katharine Docks being at the heart of that.” In addition to undertaking this demanding project in London, C&N is also creating an entirely new marina in Cowes on the Isle of Wight.

They make an excellent addition to the Safe Harbor network.” With the addition of the four California properties, Safe Harbor Marinas now owns and manages 35 marinas in 14 states. - May/June 2016 15
