Whitehaven Marina completes £1.2m upgrade work

Five years on from its buyout by Marina Projects, Whitehaven Marina has completed its £1.2m upgrade programme. The Cumbrian marina has added a new office to its recently installed walk-ashore berths.


A brand new office and customer reception area completes the works, which have also included 140 new walk-ashore berths and a cruise-ship taxi terminal. The office’s glass atrium provides views across the waterfront and further enhances the North West marina’s appeal with boat buyers and owners.

Mark Bowden, operations director at Whitehaven, explained how this was made possible:?

“By clever design and engineering we were able to lift one side of the roof by 20 degrees allowing full-length windows to be installed, so the duty team can look across Lowther Marina and to the Sea Lock.”

Upon last month’s completion of the project, Marina Projects has also freed up addition parking spaces on the Bulwark Quay.

Upcoming events at Whitehaven Marina this summer include Tall Ships Festival (20-22 June) and Whitehaven Live (5 July).
Whitehaven Marina first opened in 1998, however the has been a harbour in the local area for 400 years, with booming trade in the 1600s making it the third largest port in the UK.

As a member of the TransEurope Network, Whitehaven Marina is able to offer berth holders discounted rates in the UK, Ireland, France, Belgium, Holland, Spain and Portugal.
