Great to see the first boats berthed at the new marina. There are still a few jobs to be finished on the project but the essentials are all in place.
Berths cost €180 per meter per year but all 63 moorings are long ago booked out and with nearly 100 applications received to date, it looks as if expansion is already on the agenda.
The marina will not only add considerably to the visual attractiveness of the town but it will also be a major encouragement for visiting yachts.
And it will enable local boat owners to make better use of their boats which will be available all year round, instead of being hauled out for the winter months, as they have been up to now.
