On Monday Morning September 16th the doors opened for the new Budget Marine Chandlery in Jolly Harbour . The purpose build 5,000 sq foot facility will take over from the facility in which Budget Marine has been active for the past 20 years (one year was spent a previous building) . The new building will offer greatly improved exposure of products , air conditioning , street level access , excellent parking and loading .
The building was constructed in a record 7 months by TMCS construction headed by Tony Millard . The team of builders overtook the schedule and completed the building at a high quality level to allow Budget Marine to move in and settle down before the yachting season takes off .
The new facility already boasts the largest range of marine products in Antigua and will now make it possible to expand that range of products substantially thus increasing the stay periods of yachts in Antigua and boosting employment .
Budget Marine Antigua will also be opening a new location in English Harbour which will serve the yachting sector there . This facility will open in the month of November and will ensure that the advanced stock management systems that Budget Marine operates will bring benefit to that major yachting centre of the Caribbean .
