£1.2m upgrade to Hamble Point Marina

MDL’s Hamble Point Marina in Southampton is undergoing a £1.2m upgrade to its facilities.

The investment works include refurbishment of the toilet facilities by the Ketch Rigger bar and restaurant.

The works are due to be completed in spring 2024, and will see a refreshed layout, PIR operated lighting and ventilation system helping to reduce energy consumption, and an improvement to the overall look and feel.

The current bins adjacent to the toilets will be relocated within a purpose-built bin storage.

There will also be resurfacing works to the main road leading to the dry stack and berth holders’ car park, relining the valley gullies on MDL’s large tenant building, enhancements to the current central waste compound, as well as new lighting to the area, security cameras and access control.

Technology

The marina is also introducing Meter MACS’ Smart electricity technology across its boatyard. The new system will allow berth holders to manage their own electricity account, with 24/7 access for online payments and automatic notifications of any interruptions to the power supply.

“We strive to provide the best possible experience,” says Debbie Burns, Hamble Point Marina manager. “Our customers will always be our topmost priority, and so investment in our infrastructure, large or small, is essential to ensuring our high standards continue to be met.”

The investment forms part of wider plans for the marina including a new scheme for the marina car park to improve parking and security for berth holders, tenants and visitors. Additionally, there are plans for a new insulated container village providing workshop units and fishermen stores will offer improved land storage as well as workshop space.

A redesign of the berth holders’ facilities near the marina office is also planned, doubling the size of the current facilities and providing individual toilet and shower rooms, along with family and disabled washrooms. PIR operated lighting will be integrated to reduce energy consumption and ensure efficient operation.

MDL is planning on investing £30m across its marinas over the next five years.
