Lough Derg’s Shannon Sailing Ltd Acquired by POD Marine

25th February 2021
Lough Derg’s Shannon Sailing Ltd Acquired by POD Marine

Dun Laoghaire Harbour-based POD Marine Ltd recently announced the acquisition of Lough Derg boating firm Shannon Sailing Ltd.

The deal involved the transfer of an 80-plus-berth, private and enclosed marina with swinging moorings, chandlery and engineering workshop based on the inland waterway in the village of Dromineer, Co Tipperary.

Equipment in the purchase includes a hydraulic crane for smaller loads and a 35-ton boat lift for larger vessels.

The site also comprises a private car park, slipway, diesel pump and pump-out facilities.

As with its base at Dun Laoghaire’s West Pier, POD Marine says the site in Dromineer has ample space for boat and trailer storage.

The company also confirms that the Dromineer business will continue as an ongoing concern.
