Dunstaffnage Marina Extension
Dunstaffnage Marina near Oban is expanding its available yacht berthing this spring with the addition of heavy duty, concrete pontoons. By adding 200 metres of pontoons they will increase their capacity for visiting boats and hope to attract bigger craft, in particular super yachts.
Marina Manager, Ranulph McLauchlan said that, “Dunstaffnage is a wonderful location for sailors, growing in popularity for many years and is now recognised by super yachts alike.”
He went on, “Many see us as a convenient northern marina which is ideally suited as a setting off point to explore the Western Isles.”
The contracted for the pontoons has been awarded to Gael Force Engineering of Inverness and Forres, who will design, manage and install the marina extension. Gael Force Engineering’s
Production Director, Stephen Offord said, “Apart from providing berthing, the extra facility will, by its innovative design, add strength to the existing marina structure.” He added, “It will also provide some much needed additional wave protection from the north.”
The Marina is already a 5-gold anchor facility and is part of a growing network of marinas and local pontoons drawing people from far and wide to experience what Scotland’s’ waters have to offer.
