Marina Projects Ltd has announced the successful sale of Endeavour Quay, the Gosport run specialist boatyard business, to Premier Marinas Ltd. As part of Premier Marinas’ continued expansion and development plans, the company has purchased the rights to the name and business operation of the specialist boatyard.
Endeavour Quay lies adjacent to Premier’s Gosport Marina and offers one of the largest boatyard facilities on the south coast of the UK. The yard will continue to serve its existing customers and will provide additional boatyard facilities for premier customers, trading as Premier Endeavour Quay from 1st August 2014.
Endeavour Quay Ltd was started by Marina Projects Limited in 2006 when it took over the world-renowned, ex-Camper & Nicholsons site in Gosport, on the western shore of Portsmouth Harbour. The boatyard business has been successfully run over the last nine years with the 180 tonne travel hoist and three large boat sheds serving an international market with a focus on the private large yacht market, commercial vessels, race yachts and superyachts.
Pete Bradshaw, chief executive officer for Premier Marinas commened, “It is great news that Premier Marinas can now include the Endeavour Quay boatyard operation as part of our portfolio, it is a fantastic addition and testament to the professionalism that exists within the Marina Projects’ team. It significantly increases the offering to our berth holders and visitors and fits neatly alongside our Portsmouth Harbour marinas operation with Gosport and Port Solent.”
