The build of the new Sales Pavilion at Premier Marinas’ Swanwick Marina is nearing completion, with handover to commercial tenants scheduled for the end of next month.
The development provides 14 high quality units, fitted with solar panels to enhance its environmental credentials. Businesses moving into the new building, named The Saltings, include: Ancasta International Boat Sales, Clipper Marine, Fleming Yachts, MiCats, Nautor’s Swan, Nordhavn, Pearl Yachts, Princess Yachts, Sanlorenzo Yachts and Sunseeker International.
Graham Bristowe, general manager at Premier’s Swanwick Marina, said: “This will be yet another stage in the regeneration of Swanwick Marina and will be followed by the final stage – the development of a new F&B facility incorporating a berth holders’ lounge. This development always had our existing sales businesses in mind to be able to facilitate their specific needs as well as introducing new and exciting new brands to the marina. We have had widespread interest to the point of being oversubscribed and we are now incredibly close to achieving our vision.”
A unique representation of so many global brands in one location, businesses are excited to move into their new units and begin creating their personalised office and showroom spaces for their customers.
Ben Nichols, UK Sales Director at Clipper Marine, said: “We are so excited to have an office befitting of Swanwick Marina. It will be a place to meet clients in a relaxed and comfortable environment. We really look forward to welcoming clients, new and old, this summer.”
Sanlorenzo UK, who opened a temporary office at Swanwick last year, are also looking forward to the move with sales manager Nick Hatfield adding: “Being able to present the highest quality motor yachts from Sanlorenzo and Bluegame to clients in what will be the epicentre for motor yachts in the UK is absolutely fantastic.”
UK-based motor yacht brand Pearl Yachts will also be joining the line-up. “We have many reasons to celebrate at present with a record order book and an exciting product range,” said Iain Smallridge, managing director of Pearl Yachts. “Customer service is always at the heart of Pearl’s reputation and the opening of a new Sales and After Sales Office in Swanwick will enhance that, with capacity to better serve our network and, ultimately, our customers. Expanding our presence here is important to keep the brand’s British soul, even as we become increasingly international. We are all excited for the opening.”
