Major Plans for Haslar Marina Revealed

HGP have recently submitted plans for the redevelopment of Haslar Marina which includes plans for:

  • A New team base and racing facility for Alex Thomson Racing (Round the world yachtsman)
  • A New Marine engine and powerboat workshop facility
  • New Boats Sales unit
  • 10 Independent Yacht stores
  • Slipway improvements
  • Shoreline stabilisation including a new Pedestrian seafront walk
  • New Bar / Restaurant and Deck
  • New Office building for Dean and Reddyhoff.
  • Major extension to the marina.

The Alex Thomson Racing Team has been based at Haslar Marina for over 15 years and if planning permission is granted, Gosport will be secured as the team’s headquarters for the foreseeable future and their upcoming Vendee Globe 2020 campaign. The base will become a UK centre of excellence for ocean racing and will include a world-class boat facility, offices, training facilities and a visitor gallery which will allow the public to engage with the team.

In addition HGP have assisted in the extensive redevelopment of the marina and the creation of a new wave screen to the marina berths, which would see the addition of 50 new deep water moorings for larger boats and new wave break pontoons to provide more sheltered berthing in the north part of the marina. Further enhancements include the new clubhouse and office buildings, which will feature a new waterfront location for the marina bar-restaurant.

As well as the new services that will be offered, it is expected that the proposed development will create an additional 50 jobs on-site.
