When Tony Collins heard that White Mills Marina was being developed just down the road from his family home in Earls Barton, he knew exactly what he would be doing next - buying himself a cruiser!
So without further ado, Tony along with his wife Nina set out to track down the boat of his dreams. And within just a few weeks of searching, Tony found and fell in love with Tutuila ll a 1964 Nauticus 27.
And this weekend Tony popped down to see John and myself at the farm to study the White Mills Marina mooring layout and to pick his berth. And being the first person to secure his berth we obviously had to crack open a bottle of fizz to celebrate.
Since marketing began last week we have had quite a lot of interest in White Mills Marina on the River Nene with numbers of visitors to our site increasing daily. The hotline has also been ringing too, which is most encouraging.
