Haslar Marina redevelopment application
A new powerboat centre, team base for Alex Thomson Racing and marina extension are part of plans by Dean & Reddyhoff Marinas for its Gosport-based Haslar Marina, within Portsmouth Harbour.
Detailed in the recently submitted planning application, the powerboat centre will include an upgraded public slipway with pontoon for launching and recovering powerboats, a specialist repair and service centre providing boatyard and engineering services, a sales centre hub for new and used boat sales, engines, spares, accessories and technical advice, a new public waterfront footpath to connect with the Gosport Waterfront Trail and 28 parking spaces.
Michael Prideaux, MD at Dean & Reddyhoff, commented: “In order for us to remain fit for the future, it is critical that this hugely exciting development gets given the go ahead. If it is, it will secure the future for Haslar Marina for the next 25 years and beyond.”
Alex Thomson base
The proposed development also includes a new team base for British solo offshore sailor, Alex Thomson. This would secure Gosport as the team’s headquarters for its upcoming Vendee Globe 2020 campaign and the foreseeable future. The base will include a boat shed, offices, training facilities and a visitor gallery.
Other redevelopment proposals include a new clubhouse and the creation of a new wave screen and marina extension, which would see the addition of 50 new deepwater berths for larger boats and new wave break pontoons.
If planning permission is granted, it is anticipated building work could start towards the end of this year.
