I suppose that Swanwick are trying to recoup the costs of the major works that have taken place there recently.

Definitely gone up at Premier Gosport.
They even have a picture of my boat in their sales pitch!
Interestingly, I made a very happy move to Haslar last September.

premier in Falmouth has loads of spare berths contrary to what they say.
Wonder why
Falmouth Yacht Haven £4700 for 12months for a 12m boat

Those prices aren't based on a years mooring but just if you want to stay a month. It's £571 a month for a yearly berth, not £815 as in the advert. And cheaper if you pay upfront for the year

Is it my imagination or can you not actually find the visitor berthing rates on the premier web site? Click through a tortuously poorly designed UI via any of the routes apparently to "visitor berthing" and you get a page which says "Rates from £3.05/m...find out more?" YES OF COURSE I WANT TO FIND OUT MORE THAT'S WHY I CLICKED ON "SHOW ME THE ****ING VISITORS BERTHING RATES" ON THE LAST PAGE. Click that and even if you came via the swanwick sub-site you're still asked to select your marina and presented with a form to ask for a quote. Am I just looking in the wrong place here? Anyone tell me how to navigate to visitors' rates?

"SWANWICK MARINA - 10M £815 PM"

I interpret the advert as £815 per month based on a 10 months deal.

In any case it's them who are advertising that. So it's £815 p/m on 10M and £571 p/m for a year?? sounds strange. Maybe you are due a price update next time?

Nearly as much as Salterns which was always the gold standard.

Still is to my knowledge. 8m boat was £6000 a year last time I enquired about 3 years ago. Now boats.co.uk are present and filling the (once empty) pontoons with Fairline and Princesses I can't imagine the prices reducing.

I understand the hotel will be demolished soon (at least the developers are trying to get permission) so unless they rebuild, it will most likely be turned into luxury holiday flats and they'll lose the current restaurant/bar facilities.

Just had my berthing quote in from Swanwick - I run Autumn to Autumn. It's only 35% higher than last year so I immediately accepted :encouragement:
