Carrickfergus Marina, Belfast, United Kingdom

Carrickfergus Marina is situated just 200 m west of the twelfth century Norman harbour at Carrickfergus on the north shore of Belfast Lough in Northern Ireland. It was fully rebuilt in a contract that involved dismantling the old pontoons and building a completely new facility and was the biggest marina project in the UK in 2008. The pontoons were manufactured in the UK and Finland, and finger piers produced by Marinetek Latvia.

The new design Spinnaker dockside service pedestal, manufactured by Rolec Services, was selected for use throughout. The updated marina has access to all the nearby harbour facilities of bars, restaurants and waterfront promenade areas and has its own top class amenities for sailing and relaxation.
