A potential new development in St Peter Port

Share this page

A new, all tide accessible marina in St Peter Port Harbour would be a premium facility, meeting all the modern standards that today's leisure boater expects. As well as addressing the existing shortage of berths for local boatowners, it can provide a valuable boost the Guernsey's economy.

Although it would require a multi-million-pound investment, this would be paid back through additional mooring fees and the wider economic benefits a new marina development would bring, providing a return for the island in the long-term.

Those wider benefits include a boost to the visitor economy through the improved leisure marine offering, new opportunities for the local marine services sector, and the potential to attract high net worth individuals to relocate here.

Investment will also provide the opportunity to improve facilities for both visiting boatowners and local mooring holders. 

Benefits for all harbour users

The outer breakwater of the new marina would also provide protection to other areas of the harbour, its infrastructure and the seafront.

This includes the Victoria Marina, between the Albert and Crown Piers, which is used for visiting yachts. It cannot currently be consistently used in the winter months, because the sea conditions are too rough.  With the additional shelter of a new breakwater it could be used year-round, extending the visitor season, and providing a facility for 'over-wintering' vessels which would generate more revenue. 

The areas around the Careening Hard and Fishermens' Quay would also be reorganised to provide additional mooring spaces and improve the overall layout within the harbour. Opportunities for upgrades extend to commercial users such as fishermen and small ferry operators. The benefits will therefore not just be for leisure marine users.
