Buckler’s Hard Yacht Harbour is planning a £2m investment to extend the Beaulieu River marina.

The redevelopment is aimed at securing the marina’s future as a desired location, while keeping pace with modern demands for bigger berths and offering more convenient walk-ashore pontoons.

Marina Projects has been appointed by the Beaulieu Estate (Beaulieu Enterprises Ltd - BEL) to provide advice on the redevelopment.

Within the redevelopment, around 60 additional berths will be provided.

“The initial scope of work included analysis of the local and wider market, historic activity trends, a detailed review of the site constraints, development of concept design options and the development of the business case,” explained Marina Projects MD Mike Ward.

Complex consents

“Careful consideration of the consent strategy was necessary because of a complex consent regime, extensive and sensitive habitats and the fact that the marina sits within the New Forest National Park.”

Russell Bowman, BEL MD, added: “We are investing in the future of the marina whilst seeking to reconfigure the facility and offer increased availability of walk-ashore berths and an enhanced level of customer service. It is imperative to us that we preserve the character which makes Buckler’s Hard Yacht Harbour so special.”

Planning permission has now been granted together with a marine licence required to deliver the works.

Buckler’s Hard Yacht Harbour was opened in 1971 and has remained largely unchanged since 1980.
