Newark Marina


Project Summary

Responding to increased demand for berthing, we were asked to design and manufacture a 33-berth extension to the popular Newark Marina.

Client Newark Marina
Date October 2020
Where Newark Marina, River Trent, Nottinghamshire

Situated on a non-tidal section of the River Trent, Newark Marina’s expansion was not without its challenges. Extensive flooding, buried vehicles and the pandemic caused disruption to the realisation of Managing Director James Wilkinson’s vision of a bright and attractive new extension to the picturesque inland marina.

The project, also using local contractor Action Demolition, garnered a great deal of interest in the area, resulting in early demand from the local boating community keen to secure one of the new berths.

Working closely with James and his team, we ensured the new standard leisure marina pontoon system, with terracotta Glass Reinforced Concrete (GRC) pontoon decking, was available for delivery as soon the ground works were complete, ready for his team to install themselves, creating substantial savings for the marina.

"I am really pleased with the outcome. We went for Inland and Coastal's own specialist GRC decking system because it gives a much brighter, lighter feeling to the marina, whilst offering great stability and grip underfoot for our berth holders."
