New enterprise units in Plymouth have helped five marine businesses expand.

The new units provide workshop and office space as well as access to marine facilities at Turnchapel Wharf. Each unit measures 220 sq ft and all five were rented off-plan to local businesses.

One of the new tenants is Elite Marine Engineering that has been trading for a year. “We started off with just a storage container at Turnchapel Wharf, now a year on we have grown into our first premises," said Lewis Huddy and Steve Putt, who started the company in 2018.

"With our new unit we have a lot more space where customers can bring their boats or engines to us where we are able to offer minor repairs to full engine rebuilds from our full equipped workshop.”

International brands

Turnchapel Wharf, owned by Yacht Havens Group since 2014, was transformed from an ex-Ministry of Defence site and is already home to international brands such as Fugro, Princess Motor Yacht Sales and Thales with its Maritime Autonomy Centre.

Elec Marine has also taken occupancy of one of the new units. The marine electronics firm joined Turnchapel Wharf in 2015 within a smaller office and workshop but has now moved into a larger facility.
