Brighton’s floating yacht club to open in September
Yachting Boating World: Brighton’s new floating yacht club will open its doors to the public in September after being manoeuvred into position in July. The floating yacht club was recently towed into position at its new home in Brighton Marina.
With a new state-of-the-art building offering a series of ‘Club Class’ introductory racing sessions and plenty of refreshmens, it’s set to become a social hub in the popular Premier Marina site.
The new yacht club is located between pontoons 6 and 7, off the western concourse and next to the Lagoon Watersports office.
One of the UK’s largest floating buildings, at 3500 sq ft, the yacht club’s relocation and regeneration is the result of a Brunswick Developments, Intermarine and Premier Marinas collaboration.
Brunswick Developments have covered the construction funding while Intermarine are behind the building and creation of the unique yacht club and its floating platform.
The team at Brighton Marina Yacht Club (BMYC) have been working tirelessly to complete the project ready for its September opening.
BMYC Commodore Phil Thomas commented: “This is a significant moment for the club and all the members who have worked so hard for so long to help our first permanent clubhouse to become a reality. There’s still work to be done, though, as we continue to fit out the interior and create an exciting contemporary home for our membership and new members to come.”
