Positioned in Ireland, the Greystones Harbour Marina will be open and ready for its berth holders on April 1, 2013. Following BJ Marinas appointment as marina operators in December 2012, the company has been working around the clock to ensure they meet their target of being open for the seasons start on April 1st.
At the announcement of this venture, Managing Director Bernard Gallagher said: “We’re delighted to be appointed as harbour and marina operators for Greystones. It’s a unique and stunning site and we’re looking forward to opening this new marine leisure facility next April in time for the 2013 boating season.”
The sister company BJ Marine Ltd is one of the most successful boat sales and service firms in Ireland established over 35 years. The firm represents some of the biggest names in global boating brands including French yacht manufacturing giant Beneteau for over 20 years. The firm also represents American power boat firm Sea Ray and British luxury motorboat manufacturer Fairline. In 2012 BJ Marine imported the first production hybrid diesel electric boat, the Slovenian built Greenline 33, into Ireland.
The bookings started to be taken in late January, with a steady stream of commitment from berth holders since then. There will be 100 berths initially ranging from 6 to 30 metres. Once the demand is there, the marina can be extended to a capacity of 230 berths.
