In the welcoming speech to guests, General Marina Manager Paul Tetlow, kindly thanked Camper & Nicholsons Marinas (CNM) for all the invaluable support offered throughout the entire and complex refurbishment programme and CNM for the ongoing support now that the marina is fully operational.

“During the last year, the SKD team have been very well supported by the staff at Camper & Nicholsons Marinas, to sustain and improve all areas of what we do, continuing to work hard to give great service and memorable moments for our berth holders and visitors alike. The new layout of the pontoons is so much more practical and generous for boats to navigate around, and it looks far better too!”
