Spring 2019 Newsletter



West Coast Marina
Fraser McIver, James Hoad, Neil Donaldson

From the beginning of June we are very pleased to announce that Fraser McIver will take up the position of Marina Manager in the business, overseeing all marina, mooring and storage based activity at Ardfern including all bookings and boat movements. 
Replacing Fraser in the workshop is James Hoad who will become Assistant Workshop Manager from 1st June 2019, working alongside Workshop and Yard manager, Bob Fleck. 
At the same time Neil Donaldson, who has 25 years experience in the leisure marine industry, will take up the position of Chandlery Manager in the business when Guy Neville leaves the yacht centre in June.
Over the summer months Grant Lees will step down from his Marina Coordinator role to assist in the chandlery before leaving Ardfern in mid August to take up his place at university this autumn. Meanwhile, Rachael Fraser will again join the team in the chandlery over the summer period.
We look forward to working with Fraser, James and Neil in their new roles. All three have excellent skills, which make them a credit to the marine industry and we are very fortunate to have them working at Ardfern. We also thank Guy for his many years of service to the company and wish him well for the future, along with wishing Grant every success on his new Naval Architecture course.


With three new fibre broadband lines to the business and six antennas now in operation around the pontoons, the new WIFI network is now up and running and connectivity has been much improved, with much better signal and speed strengths than the previous system.


Now the new office extension to the side of the chandlery building is nearing completion, in what has been the first phase of our building projects for 2019 at Ardfern, the temporary portakabin office in the car park will be imminently removed to free-up more car parking spaces again. 
The building works to improve the shower and toilet block facilities are set to take place over the winter of 2019/2020.
