Mooring provider Aquavista acquires Castle Marinas

Aquavista, a residential and leisure mooring provider, has acquired Castle Marinas, which will see its marina offerings expanding to over 5,000 berths UK-wide, at both inland and coastal locations.

The acquisition of the mooring provider, West Sussex-based Castle Marinas, expands Aquavista’s current portfolio of 18 marinas nationwide, with an additional 11 marinas, including Crick Marina and Birdham Pool Marina at Chichester Harbour.

Steve de Polo, Long Eaton-based Aquavista’s Chief Executive, believes the purchase will bring growth opportunities.

He commented:

Mike Braidley, Operations Director at Castle Marinas, sees the acquisition as like-minded companies coming together to enhance customer service.

He said:

The investment was funded by mid-market private equity firm LDC.

LDC partnered with Aquavista in December 2018 to support targeted capital investment across the marina estate. Since then, the business has invested more than £3m to improve its marina facilities.

David Bains, Investment Director at LDC, said:
