Marina Services for Businesses

One of the specialist areas covered by IBB is the law relating to the operation of ports and marinas. This is a niche area covered by only a handful of law firms in the UK. The law can be complex and confusing, so It is important for marina owners and operators to take specialist advice to ensure that they are aware of their legal rights and responsibilities, and so avoid making costly mistakes.

Our solicitors have experience in dealing with administrative, commercial and property matters which occur in this niche sector, and they will often work alongside other specialist teams in the firm when necessary.

Why choose IBB?

We act for a number of leading marina operators around the country and are members of British Marine and The Yacht Harbour Association, so you can be confident that we will be able to deal with any issues which may arise relating to the operation of your marina business.

The members of our team advise marina owners on:

  • Property acquisitions and leasehold and freehold disposals
  • Mooring leases and licences
  • Waterside/riverside projects with moorings
  • Port and harbour development matters
  • Disputes with boat/yacht owners, including possession proceedings and debt recovery
  • Floating homes

We can also help you with preparing or reviewing the relevant documents for operating or developing a marina (including marine leases, consents and licences), and our specialist construction team can provide advice about any aspects of construction or refurbishment in relation to a marina, port or harbour.
