Doug Wright, ports commercial and estates manager for States of Guernsey, commented: “Marina Projects bring a wealth of marine leisure knowledge and experience to this exciting project. We have a rich and diverse leisure boating community here in Guernsey and our consultants have understood the challenges associated with the site and engaged with local stakeholders to identify clear direction and are assisting us with the strategy to develop the proposals for a new all-tide marina scheme.” As part of the ongoing viability assessment, Marina Projects will undertake financial modelling of Pool Marina to measure the impact of the new berthing asset on the existing operations in terms of income, overhead costs and capital expenditure. The key assumptions and outcomes will serve to identify the investment case for the marina. Marina Projects managing director, Mike Ward, said: “We are really pleased to be working with Guernsey Ports to bring forward well-considered proposals for an all-tide marina facility in St Peter Port. The strategic and geographic advantages of the location, and the immediate connection to the fabulous waterfront of St Peter Port, are key strengths that the study will look to leverage. An all-tide facility will change the face of marina berthing in Guernsey. Notwithstanding an array of complex challenges, we have the necessary experience to help our client deliver a scheme that creates significant benefits for the local residents and harbour users.” BPC1993 Inland & Coastal 182x132 ad OLAW.indd 1 03/07/2020 11:48 20 – July/August 2022 THE BEST CROATIAN MARINA • Regattas • Weddings • Team Building Rogoznica N43° 31.8’ E15° 57.8’ Marina Frapa - Rogoznica Uvala Soline 1 • 22203 Rogoznica +385 22 55 99 00 • Dubrovnik N42° 39.5’ E18° 4.9’ Marina Frapa - Dubrovnik Lapadska obala 21A • 20000 Dubrovnik +385 20 42 22 66 •
