South coast marina operators, Dean & Reddyhoff Ltd, has completed the purchase of Deacons Boatyard Ltd, located in Hamble, Hampshire.
With 130 marina berths and a full-service boatyard for 150 boats ashore on the river Hamble, Deacons complements the existing Dean & Reddyhoff marina network, which has 1500 berths at Haslar, East Cowes, Portland and Weymouth marinas, plus a modern boat yard at Portland.
The two companies have been working closely together for the last year, with Deacons offering boat yard services to Dean & Reddyhoff Solent-based berth holders.
Dean & Reddyhoff Managing Director, Michael Prideaux, comments: “It is a great location on the Hamble River, and we respect their history and heritage. Deacons has developed a really good reputation for helping customers look after their boats, and will be a great fit with our existing marinas.”
Deacons Managing Director Lucas Shotts will become a Director at Dean & Reddyhoff, developing boat care services at Deacons and Portland boat yards.  “Being part of the larger Dean & Reddyhoff group offers great opportunities for our customers, our staff and our on-site tenants” he said.
From April on wards, Deacons annual berth holders will receive the same boating benefits as all other Dean & Reddyhoff berth holders, including 21 free overnight visits to group marinas, discounts at on-site restaurants and free tickets for Southampton Boat Show.
