Keeping it close

Summer is well and truly over and the new custom pontoon at Brownsea Island, Dorset UK has completed its first season in-situ for the John Lewis Partnership. Built to order, this was Manor Marine’s first order from Southampton-based pontoon specialist Intermarine Ltd.

Construction of the 13-metre steel tubular pontoon commenced in April 2022 and was delivered to the Brownsea Island site the following month, serving as access for visitors travelling to Brownsea Castle on the island.

Shorter timescale refit and construction projects are new areas of focus for the Dorset- headquartered Manor Marine as they fit in nicely around the company’s vessel construction programme which is naturally more time-intensive.

Leif Cooper, Managing Director at Manor Marine said, “We’re extremely pleased to have provided fabrication services to Intermarine Ltd for their Brownsea Island pontoon project. We have built many steel pontoons over the years, but this was our first with Intermarine Ltd and it has been great to be assisting with a Dorset-based Project”.
