Marina focus for Marinas19 AUSTRALIA: The Marinas19 International Conference and Trade Exhibition will be held on the Gold Coast, Queensland 27 th -28 th May 2019. The event immediately follows the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show that flows on from the Australian Superyacht and Marine Export Conference (ASMEX). Marinas19, the next in the series that has been organised every two years since 2001 by the Marina Industries Association, will revert to a marina focused event. For the last three events, it has been run in partnership with the Boating Industries Association and has adopted a broader marine agenda. Porto Lottti joins 1782 Club ITALY: Porto Lotti, the luxury 520- berth superyacht marina in the Gulf of La Spezia, has joined the exclusive Camper & Nicholsons Marinas (C&NM) 1782 Club. C&NM COO, Dan Hughes, welcomed the new club member. “We are so pleased to be closely working with Porto Lotti through the 1782 Club, which offers a unique marketing and business development platform to help promote marinas internationally,” he said. “With the recent marina extension of 14 dedicated superyacht berths now complete at Porto Lotti, larger yachts can easily be accommodated. Its unique location within the Gulf of La Spezia, provides a destination close to some of the world’s most high profile Italian shipyards and yacht manufacturers as well as being in a great location for those yachts heading south ahead of the season.” In addition to the 14 superyacht berths, the marina also boasts a transit berth for yachts up to 180m (590ft); one of very few in the region. Lakeland Leisure buys Roydon Marina UK: Windermere-based Lakeland Leisure Estates has purchased Roydon Marina Village, a 56-acre inland marina and leisure complex in Essex. The site includes a 350-berth marina, 60 holiday lodges and a hotel. Nigel Wimpenny, managing director of Lakeland Leisure Estates, said: “This excellent site is a key part of our strategy to grow our business portfolio, mainly through the acquisition of wellestablished locations.” Lakeland owns and manages a WORLD NEWS variety of leisure complexes including five marinas. In January this year it acquired Deganwy Marina, North Wales, from the Crown Estate. The acquisitions of the Roydon and Deganwy properties were made using HSBC funding packages. Milestone achievement at Ocean Village UK: The refurbishment and extension of MDL’s Ocean Village Marina in Southampton has reached a milestone. Walcon Marine has completed Piers A to D, which are now in use, and has three more to finish. All walkways, piers and pontoons have been constructed using Walcon’s System 21 product and heavy-duty wave-attenuating pontoons have been used near the marina entrance. Pontoons have been decked with a charcoal grey composite product supplied by Dura Composites (see p. 46). A key feature of the new layout is the introduction of Pier P (for Platinum). For higher fee paying customers, Walcon has designed and built customised high-spec pontoons with under-deck services, branded cleats and smart services using keypads and mobiles. The berthing package includes extra shoreside services and privileges. - July/August 2018 9
