Our Marina Phase 1 is now in place and looking great, and ready
in time for next week's HarbourFest celebrations.
All are agreed it is a quality installation by our local suppliers, VARIS Engineering Ltd, Forres, Morayshire, who pulled out all the stops to have it ready on time. Well done to all concerned.
There are approximately 10 berths depending on vessel size, with half for residents and half for visitors, and applications for permanent berths were well over-subscribed which augurs well for our proposed 70 berth installation planned for next year.
