The Marine & Property Group are the parent company to five subsidiaries, each corresponding to their marinas and facilities in Cardiff, Swansea, Burry Port, Aberystwyth, and Port Dinorwic. They offer a range of services from berthing to maintenance and repairs, as well as property for marine leisure and commercial customers. On the horizon is a lively new apartment and amenities development adjacent to Cardiff Marina called Bayscape; the money will go towards these new facilities.

Marine living made perfect

At the Marine & Property Group, we hold a range of stunning and practical marinas across Wales, where we offer quality berthing, drystack facilities, and beyond as we branch out into commercial properties. With over 1,000 berths in total, we endeavour to keep our facilities at the forefront of the latest technology available to boat owners. But we don't stop there! Our marine engineers travel widely to repair and maintain boats across Wales, south west England, and further afield. In fact, we have a subsidiary dedicated to this, Cardiff Marine Services, for whom we've raised twice before with Crowd2Fund.

We're a large presence in the community and use this as a platform to promote good causes. We've partnered with the charity, CLIC Sargent, who support young people affected by cancer, to organise and attend events such as pub quiz nights, boat festivals, and marathons. In addition, we support The Green Blue initiative of the British Marine Federation and the Royal Yachting Association. Therefore, we do our utmost to consider the environment as we install solar panels and recycling bins, as well as regulating customer behaviour with regards to wildlife, sewage, and spillages.

Our HQ is our Cardiff site. Adjacent to this, is Bayscape, a new multi-functional development on an exclusive waterfront setting. Primarily, this will include 1, 2, and 3 bedroom apartments for homemakers, thereby creating Cardiff's first and only marina address. We will use the money raised in this campaign to continue to develop these facilities, including a new management suite. Finally, we have a location for a coffee shop/lounge bar overlooking the River Ely and perfect for al fresco entertaining.

A. Hello, Please could you direct your question to Crowd2Fund? I am able to comment on the business itself but not on investor investment matters as this is managed by C2F.

A. The investment in the landside facilities at Cardiff Marina provides a considerable upgrade for the marina and consequently will accelerate occupancy and berthing rates. The Crowd2Fund loan offers a flexible solution to funding projects. This in turn allows us to accurately forecast the use of profits generated to amortise long-term financing. On a net basis (taking into account any new loans) the business repays around £90'000 per month.
