The picturesque Port Dinorwic Marina, which dates back to 1763, was previously operated by The Marine and Property Group and offers year-round cruising in the Menai Strait, which separates North Wales and Anglesey.

Simon Monks, Restructuring Partner at Azets and joint administrator, commented, “Whilst Port Dinorwic Marina has had its challenges in recent years, its sale out of administration to a new owner / operator will enable the necessary investment to create a thriving marina that staff, berth holders and local community can be proud of. I wish the new owners every success in operating the marina going forward.”

Andrew Barton of The Waterside Consortium added, “the whole process of purchasing Port Dinorwic has been a journey through the highs and lows of any business acquisition.  Throughout the process, Azets and Christie & Co were both communicative and informative, providing the necessary support to guide us to a successful conclusion and the deal was completed in the end based upon trust, honesty and integrity. 

Jon Patrick, Head of Leisure & Development at Christie & Co concluded, “Considerable interest in Port Dinorwic resulted in multiple offers for the business being received, a number from owners of holiday park businesses in and around the Northwest, as well as community-based investors, lifestyle buyers and multi-site marina operators. We have seen a marked increase in marina and marine related advisory work throughout 2023, with further new marina instructions already confirmed in Q1 2024.”
