Camper & Nicholsons Marinas have confirmed that it has agreed terms with Granton Harbour to design, commission, manage and operate the new Edinburgh Marina, the centrepiece of a £500 million waterside quarter development close to Edinburgh city centre.

Camper & Nicholsons Marinas are owners and operators providing specialist marina operational management to a portfolio of clients in over 25 countries worldwide. The new Edinburgh Marina will enable Scotland’s capital to compete for a major share of Scotland’s £3.7 billion marine tourism industry by creating new world-class facilities to help expand the size of Scotland’s overall berth availability .

Designed to surpass the Yacht Harbour Association’s 5 Gold Anchor rating, Edinburgh Marina will comprise 315 fully serviced berths providing 24/7 access to the sea, a state-of-the-art marina office and fully serviced boatyard and dry-stack operation.

The marina will be located immediately next to the Edinburgh Marina Spa and Conference Hotel and new luxury residences.
