Built using Walcon’s System 2000 aluminium-framed pontoons, the walkway is 145m (476ft) long. The finger pontoons will be delivered by Walcon over time as bookings are taken. The piling and installation was undertaken by Irvings Piling. Tingdene acquired the marina in 2016 and Walcon undertook the initial phase of its regeneration. This saw the first pier go in, together with a back walkway for three of the four piers. Thereafter, in line with their new business model, the upgrade will continue with the rolling removal of old pontoons and the installation of new piers in response to demand. Tingdene specialises in inland marinas and, since it was formed in 2004, has acquired ten marinas spread across central eastern and southern England, investing in them up to the highest standards. For a recent acquisition, Broadlands Marina in Suffolk, Walcon supplied a Carolyn Elder After 35 years of loyal service, marina director Carolyn Elder (left) has passed the day-to-day management of Largs Yacht Haven across to Dave Hewitt (right). Elder joined Largs Yacht Haven in 1987, helping Yacht Havens Group develop the site from initial proposals into a thriving boating community on the west coast of Scotland. Largs Yacht Haven is now Scotland’s largest marina, home to over 700 berths and supporting 100 full time jobs. During her three decades, Elder took on a number of additional roles locally to drive marine tourism and trade for the Ayrshire area. She was president of the Ayrshire Chamber of Commerce, and worked with yacht clubs and classes to develop Largs Yacht Haven as a host to national and international sailing events. She is also part of the local committee which manages the Largs Regatta Festival and Fife Regatta. “It’s been an honour to have managed Largs Yacht Haven for so complete package of pontoons and fittings required to create an 88m (289ft) back walkway and three piers with finger pontoons, capable of providing an additional 54 berths for leisure craft up to 12m (39ft) in length. In recent years, it has also worked with Tingdene on upgrading Racecourse Marina in Windsor, Berkshire, and Pyrford Marina in Surrey. many years. I’m so grateful that the Kalis family (owners of Yacht Havens Group) entrusted me with developing it and I’m so proud of what we’ve been able to achieve together,” she said. Elder remains a Yacht Havens Group director, taking on a new role providing operational support to the group’s nine marinas in the UK and the Netherlands, and spending more time on her 8.5m (28ft) sailing yacht. 54 – May/June 2022
