The past year has seen one of the biggest investments in Suffolk Yacht Harbour's facilities since the marina first opened.
This winter's dredging and renewal programme has seen the fuel jetty, crane bay and pontoon E completely reconstructed. The extension and refurbishment of the SYH workshops continues on schedule and will see 50% more workshop space and improved facilities when it completes during the summer. In addition, SYH has just invested in a replacement crane to offer single point lifting for yachts up to 12 tonnes. And a new storage area at the top of the self-launch slip supports the burgeoning growth in dry-sailing sportsboats.
It's great to receive good feedback on the work we undertake, especially when it's something unusual or novel. Zeger, a Victoire 12-metre, had her topsides wrapped with vinyl a few weeks ago – a covering which is popular for racing yachts but is new to cruising yachts on the East coast.
The owner told us "I am delighted with the service that you have provided, and the results that you have delivered. It has been particularly exciting to be part of something new and the process of wrapping the boat has been very engaging. You have taken a very tired looking hull and produced an 'as new' result that any owner would be delighted with.
The launch programme for the spring is starting to get very busy and with Easter falling early this year (Easter Sunday is April 5) there will be a rush of boat owners trying to get a launch during April. To book your slot call the harbour office or email Bob Gibbon.
