Nominated for ‘Marina of the Year’ in The British Yachting Awards 2020, Bucklers Hard enters the second phase of its £2m redevelopment.
The harbour has now begun taking reservations for an additional 35 berths which will be available by April 2021, the marina’s golden anniversary year, including large berths capable of accommodating vessels of 18 metres and above.
Beaulieu Enterprises MD Russell Bowman said: “They are the only sailing awards voted for entirely by sailors themselves, and we’re delighted to have been recognised for our commitment to improving facilities and providing a friendly service that goes above and beyond.”
The development is designed to future-proof the marina and adapt to the changing nature of modern boating. Phase one has already seen the construction of a dedicated visitor area, upgraded electrical services and an initial increase in walk-ashore pontoons. Delayed by the coronavirus outbreak, work resumed as soon as it was safe to do so.
Harbour Master Wendy Stowe said: “The Beaulieu River is the perfect place to ‘get away from it all’, particularly in such a challenging year. We’ve been pleased to provide a secure and friendly environment this summer and look forward to sharing our new facilities with visitors when they open next spring.”
