Premier Marinas has acquired the Trafalgar Wharf site in Portsmouth Harbour UK from the Trafalgar Group for an undisclosed sum. The sale includes the dry stack boat storage (Europe’s largest indoor dry stack boat storage facility) and Trafalgar Shipyard.

Other Trafalgar Group businesses which include Boat Club Trafalgar, RIBs For Sale, Ballistic RIBs, Thornham Marina and Gatcombe House Serviced Offices are not included in the transaction and those located at Trafalgar Wharf will continue to operate as usual.

All of the existing operations team at Trafalgar Wharf will be retained and transferred to Premier Marinas as part of the sale agreement.

“We’re delighted to add the Trafalgar Wharf site to the Premier portfolio and welcome new team members into our family,” says Premier Marinas CEO, Pete Bradshaw. “The acquisition marks yet another milestone for Premier as we continue to invest and grow our business. Trafalgar Wharf adds new capabilities to our group and we’re confident that we will be able to combine the knowledge of the existing team and our wider operational experience to further enhance the site and operations.”

Jonny Boys, managing director of The Trafalgar Group, comments: “We’re all about doing things differently and putting our customers first. We’re delighted to be handing the reins to Premier Marinas who share our vision to create fantastic boating and waterside experiences.”

In May (2023) Premier Marinas officially opened its new flagship marina and boatyard at Noss on Dart in Devon.
