The new state-of-the-art facility is expected to be completed in early 2014 and will accommodate vessels up to 20 metres, including some provision for multihulls.
As expected, demand for long-term leases has been strong and only a handful of the 20 year leases remain. RMYS is also accepting deposits for short-term rentals of up to 12 months.
The successful tenderers for the new marina are:
Fitzgerald Constructions, who, in conjunction with Natural Stone Constructions, are carrying out the necessary extension to the existing breakwater;
Bellingham Marine, who will be providing all aspects of the new marina itself, and Scarlett Contracting, who will be upgrading the necessary power supply along the existing pier.
