Guernsey Harbours has unveiled plans to upgrade significantly the facilities on the island’s Crown Pier, also known as the Victoria Pier.
The pier, which is located alongside the Victoria Marina for visiting yachts people, already features a restaurant and toilet and shower facilities.
It sits in a conservation area of St Peter Port, with some buildings dating back to the 19th century and any development must both preserve and enhance the area.
The facilities serve more than 30,000 visiting boaters each year and demand has increased since the well-received Swan pontoon link up.
Guernsey Harbours is seeking a commercial partner to help redevelop the area.
Matt Le Page, President of the Guernsey Marine Traders Association, said: ‘The yachting community is well served on the island and we’re really pleased with this move which will bring the facilities right up to date and further boost the visitor experience.’
Harbour director Sarah McGreevy said: ‘It’s a great opportunity to maximise and enhance what we can offer our visitors.’
‘Maintaining the status quo is not an option', says Guernsey Harbours director
