Our consultancy services cover all stages of the marina development cycle. We often undertake ‘concept-to-commissioning’ instructions from clients although the majority of our work is undertaken on a project basis.


A list of the services we offer is shown below and we would welcome the opportunity to discuss your requirements personally.


Master Planning & Design

Working with architects, planners and engineers we look to develop the most beneficial, active and attractive waterfronts. With a property background we fully understand the role active waterfronts play in successful developments.

Procurement Advice

Blue Sea Consulting can advise on procurement issues covering the majority of marina assets and projects.

Initial Scheme Viability Assessments ("sense check")

As the title suggests this is a high level analysis of the potential for a marina or waterfront development and is often the first point of contact for developers


Technical Access Reviews

New development can raise some interesting access issues and we have been called upon to provide guidance on such matters as revisions to Harbour Orders and changes to local Byelaws 


Marina & Waterfront Facility Design

We work with architects and engineers to design and optimise buildings for commercial and leisure marine users. 


Environmental Issues

We can advise on many of the environmental issues which impact upon the operation and development of waterfront sites. Our Associates include scientist and environmental specialists.


Operational Audit

Many organisations can benefit from an external expert review. Our audits deliver concise and realistic overviews of existing marine leisure businesses. The audit is customised for each client to highlight strengths and weaknesses in most aspects of their operation with a final report delivered to assist in delivering beneficial change at a scale relevant to the business.


Social and Economic Impact Assessments

The development of waterfront assets to Full Business Case (FBC) will inevitably require an understanding of its Social and Economic impact. We undertake this analysis with assistance from various agents


Market Research

Working with our Associates we carry out extensive research for public and private entities. Recent research topics have included; average nightly spend for visiting boats and a strategic review of opportunities for marina developments


Consultation on Policy Development

Blue Sea Consulting are consulted on matters relating to policy development at a government level and regularly contribute to matters affecting the marine leisure industry.



In order to give our clients the best possible services and to resource instructions efficiently we often work with a range of associate organisations.


Our associates and associate organisations are all held in exceptionally high regard in their respective fields and have been chosen by us because of their knowledge, practicality, skills and commercial abilities.
