Inland and Coastal Marina Systems upgrades sailing club’s watersports pontoon

January 24, 2022

Working closely with Leigh and Lowton Sailing Club, we have upgraded the club’s water access for a range of watersports, including sailing and kayaking.

Replacing the existing uneven and slippery units, we designed and manufactured an 18m x 2.4m mixed watersports pontoon, featuring a bespoke walkway with mooring points. 

Located in front of the sailing club near Warrington, the new pontoon has 300mm of freeboard and hardwood timber fendering, providing easy launch and recovery for a wide variety of recreational craft. 

Topped with our GRP mini mesh decking, Leigh and Lowton’s club members now have a more stable and non-slip platform for launching their boats to enjoy time on the water. 

“We looked at several options to improve our launching pontoon, including doing the whole job ourselves,” says the club’s facilities manager, Howard Green. 

“We choose to work with Inland and Coastal as we liked their ‘can-do’ collaborative approach, practical help and workable, quality solution. Our members are delighted with the result. We have a great new launching area for all our boats including our RIBs.”

Jon Challis, our sales manager, comments: “By working closely with Howard, discussing the various possible approaches, particularly with regards to sourcing the pile moorings locally, meaningful savings on the overall budget were achieved. We hope that the club members continue to enjoy their new facility for many years to come.”
