Marina marks 25 years by raising glass at show

Have your say

 A QUARTER of a century in business is being celebrated by a marina this week. 

The Dean & Reddyhoff team will be raising a glass to toast 25 years of the first Dean & Reddyhoff marina – Haslar Marina – at the Southampton Boat Show. 
 John Dean and Richard Reddyhoff had a huge task in building Haslar Marina - reclaiming land, dredging the creek, building the wave break and refitting the Mary Mouse Lightship.

In 1993, Haslar Marina welcomed the first berth holder, Dick Pinhey with ‘Corsair of Barbary.’

Ben Lippiett, marina manager, said: ‘We are looking forward to celebrating Haslar Marina’s history and swapping stories and memories.

‘A quarter of a century later, it’s fantastic that 22 of the original berth holders are part of the Haslar Marina family.

‘We’ve created a photo album at Haslar Marina, so if you’ve got photos and boating tales to share then do please pop along and see us at the boat show.

‘We look forward to celebrating the next 25 years.’

Southampton Boat Show runs every day until September 23.
