Chandlery discounts

 To coincide with the Meet the Professionals weekend, there will be a number of special offers and exclusive deals available in the chandlery.

Please talk to us about special orders for winter maintenances and upgrade projects, is the message. Competitive deals are always available, and advice comes free.

“That is where we score over online shopping,” said chandlery manager Richard Gadd. “We can help on owner installations. And we will always come on board and give advice if required.”

The improvement of the harbour infrastructure continues, with the deep-cleaning of the pontoons from the lightship to the eatern end of the marina now complete.
Another phase of the upgrading of the electrical system has also been completed, with all the hard-standing outlets now switched over to the new metering system.
