Exciting times ahead as work officially starts on the development of Noss on Dart’s new fully-serviced boatyard – with the new Hoist Dock and Dry Stack launching and recovery dock now under construction.
The boatyard is a major part of the development project and the planned 75 tonne boat lifting facility will be the largest lifting capacity on the River Dart. Local contractors, Teignmouth Maritime Services are already onsite and have begun important engineering works to secure the piles that will create the boat hoist dock. Along with having the capacity to lift up to 75 tonne vessels it will provide short term storage ashore for our customers and contractors to undertake maintenance work and projects.
Alongside the new hoist dock, also under construction is a new dry stack launching and recovery dock. This dock will facilitate a new Marine Travelift forklift which will launch and recover boats from the new dry stack facility.
Andy Osman CMM, General Manager at Noss on Dart Marina says: “Having the boatyard and dry-stack construction underway is a very exciting and vital stage of the whole marina development. I am looking forward to the completion of this phase and getting these services open for business.”
