Birdham Pool Marina unveils plans for new berths for 2018

Birdham Pool Marina is delighted to announce plans to construct some new pontoons in the marina which will result in a further 28 new berths of between 6 to 12m being added to the marina. The berths will be ready by the start of next season (April 2018)

Work will commence on the pontoons in Autumn 2017.

Marina Manager John Hiltunen said “we are in the fortunate position of being a popular marina due to the fantastic location; wonderful setting and historically maritime feel of Birdham Pool, so it’s really nice that we will be able to offer a few more berths instead of having to turn people away”

Castle Marinas Ltd, owners of Birdham Pool, have made several enhancements to the marina over the last two years in terms of the storage and lifting of boats plus better tenant facilities, whilst still retaining the pretty, quaint and traditional feel that the berth holders love so much.

Operations Director Mike Braidley says “‘the new pontoon will not affect the beautiful setting of the marina, and will improve access to other pontoons in the Pool. We needed to clear some of the silted up areas within the marina, and it’s a real bonus that we’ve gained back some of berths we had historically given up’”

“Anyone interested in a berth at Birdham Pool Marina is advised to contact John, the Marina Manager or the Birdham Pool team as soon as possible as It is anticipated that the new berths will be very much in demand.”

Castle Marinas Ltd owns and operates seven marinas in the UK. Five on the inland waterways and two coastal marinas, Birdham Pool and Royal Clarence Marina in Gosport which operate a reciprocal berthing scheme.
