SeaRegs Training move to Plymouth facility
The company specialises in commercial maritime training, including survival and first aid for entry level seafarers up to Stability, Navigation and Radar for Masters, with notable clients including the Port of London Authority, the International Sailing Federation and other maritime institutes around the world.
Directors Simon and Vicky Jinks have taken occupancy of a modern workshop, classroom facilities as well as a Transas simulator suite for pilotage and navigation exercises.
SeaRegs worked in partnership with Turnchapel Wharf to ensure the new premises met its unique and growing requirements.
Turnchapel Wharf is the former home of the 539 Royal Marines Assault Squadron. When the Ministry of Defence sold the site in 2014, new owners Yacht Havens Group developed the site into a thriving waterfront business park for marine businesses.
Simon Jinks says, “Our new office comes at a time of growth for SeaRegs Training with more teaching space and more equipment required to meet a growing demand for our services. We have recently acquired Plymouth Sailing School so this new facility at Turnchapel Wharf will be critical to our long-term success. In addition to our new classrooms, we now have easy access to the water to be able to deliver the practical elements of our courses with ease.”
Speaking about the new buildings and the continued development on the ex-Ministry of Defence site, Yacht Havens Group Managing Director Dylan Kalis said, “Investing in Turnchapel Wharf and developing the site has allowed a range of local, national and international marine businesses to grow and prosper. I am delighted that SeaRegs have joined Turnchapel Wharf…”
