Alicat Workboats Ltd are delighted to announce that we have received £165,000 funding from the Coastal Communities Fund. This funding will help towards the cost of constructing a new all weather facility at our Great Yarmouth base.
This project will complement the recent £1.6 million investment by Alicat Workboats in the provision of a new 200 tonne mobile vessel lift and associated works.
With the expected growth in the marine industry in this area, this new all weather facility will enable us to have all year round maintenance, repair and construction which will create new employment opportunities for apprentices and skilled personnel alike both directly and indirectly as well as securing a number of existing jobs.
‘The barn’, an old existing building (highlighted) will be replaced to accommodate the new facility. The granting of the funding has ensured that we will start building this facility this year.
Alicat Workboats would like to thank the Coastal Communities Fund, Big Lottery Fund, Norfolk County Council Economic Development Unit, New Anglia LEP, Chamber of Commerce, Great Yarmouth Borough Council and all others that supported our application.
