Commercial Property Management.

Commercial property sits at the core of any marina. Here at MDL we know marina property and understand how it works. Marina tenants are key stakeholders in any marina business and an integral part to the success of any marina; driving footfall and delivering services to berth holders.

Because we know marinas and understand marine property and its occupiers, we get the bigger picture and can align the management of the real estate to the wider strategic aims of the marina business. We anticipate needs, deal with issues long before they become problems and tailor services precisely to the marina’s requirements.

We manage commercial properties across the UK and have experience of managing all types of property: boat sheds, chandleries, gyms, retail and industrial units, restaurants and pubs.

We have dedicated teams who specialise in marina property management, accounts, service charges, facilities management, destination marketing, credit control, asset management, sustainability, utilities management, corporate accounting and traffic management/car parking.
