You have got the superyacht and now it’s a question where to berth it. Let’s be honest Monaco is so crowded, Antibes too populated and San Remo just too far from the airport!
What you need is your very own harbour where just your yacht and those of a very few discreet friends can exclusivly dock.
The good news is we have heard that Charlestown Harbour, an enchanting yet fully functional Grade II listed 18th Century port, near St Austell on the south coast of Cornwall, has been put on the market for sale.
As well as providing an idyllic and unspoilt location, Charlestown has a lock gate providing controlled, constant water levels. The inner basin is approximately 150 metres long by 33 metres wide. The controlling beam through the inner gate is 9.3 metres, and maximum draught is 4.2 metres.
The outer harbour has a protective mole, forming a safe haven and is flanked by private beaches on either side.
The £1,500,000 asking price includes the harbour, waterfront, beaches, and approximately 1.5 acres of land suitable for storage.
A further 0.809 Hectares (two acres) of freehold land suitable for commercial/residential development (subject to planning) is also available in conjunction with the purchase of the harbour or following the sale of the harbour. Offers in the region of £1,500,000 will secure this land.
Additional commercial buildings and the Harbour Master’s Cottage will be offered subject to a separate negotiation
