Chatham Maritime Marina set for £500,000 berth expansion

MDL’s Chatham Maritime Marina, situated on the River Medway in Kent, is investing £500,000 in a state-of-the-art expansion plan which will include the addition of 54 new berths.

This exciting new development, due to open in April 2016, will also see a brand new pontoon in the marina which will lie adjacent to notable vessels at The Historic Dockyard.

The Historic Dockyard is a truly stunning 80-acre site with important buildings, museum galleries, historic warships and is described as the finest example of a Dockyard of the Age of Sail anywhere in the world.

Michael Glanville, Group Head of Operations at MDL Marinas, commented on the investment: “The marina is at the heart of a multi-million-pound leisure and retail development, so it made sense for us to invest in these additional berths and the pontoon to accommodate the extra interest coming into the area. We look forward to showing perspective berth holders around the site.

“The Chatham Maritime Marina makes the perfect base for long distance cruises over to the continent with France, Belgium and The Netherlands all within easy reach. Closer to home, the surrounding area is delightful with the Medway Estuary offering excellent cruising, secluded anchorages and perfect lazy lunch stops.”
