As you may have been aware, Weir Quay Boatyard was recently put on the market.
It has now been announced that the Boatyard has been sold to a local family with strong boating interests and a passion for the local area.
The Acland family will be taking over WQB and retaining all the staff and will be led by father and daughter team, Harry and Georgie. They have an exciting vision of maintaining the ethos of the working boatyard whilst improving the services offered to both the mooring holders and locals over the long term.
We have been informed that, going forward, it will be very much ‘business as usual’ with some interesting developments in the offing which will become apparent in the future.
Please join us in welcoming the Aclands and sharing their enthusiasm for the future of the Boatyard by offering your support where you can. They have already joined Weir Quay Sailing Club and will be keeping their Scow “Topsy” in the Hub Club Boat Park.
