1.   Super Yacht "My Trust" visits

"My Trust" was on her maiden voyage and chose Dartmouth to stop off for the views and our local food!  At 147 feet in length and accommodating only 10 guests, this has to be one of the most  luxurious Super Yachts we have ever seen. Look at the rear fenders, they are bigger than the crew member !

Her main deck features a master stateroom plus owner's office, saloon and dining area.  A lounge with bar is also found on the bridge deck as well as the captain's cabin. A wealth of outdoor relaxation facilities include large open seating areas on the aft decks and a sun deck with bar, Jacuzzi and pads.  Other yachts of this size might take 5 times more guests, making this a very special vessel indeed!  Welcome to Dartmouth!

If "My Trust" comes here for a long weekend, why don't you ??

2.     Passing Out Parade








At BRNC's Passing In and Passing Out Parade last Thursday, 77 Young Officers passed out and a further 97 passed in. The salute was taken by The Second Sea Lord and Commander-in-Chief Naval Home Command, Vice Admiral Sir Adrian Johns, who was accompanied by the Mayor of Dartmouth, Councillor Debbie Morris and BRNC's Commodore Martin Alabaster.

Fortunately the weather was cooler on Thursday than earlier in the week, but still a beautiful spring day for this ceremonial event.  Prince William who spent only a few days at BRNC before heading off for further naval training at sea, added his autograph to those of other members of the Royal Family to the Wardroom ceiling!

Visitors can tour Dartmouth's famous Royal Naval College by booking at the Tourist Information Centre in Dartmouth.

3.   Success @ Dart Marina

The Knight Frank Sales Team at the Dart Marina Development are continually being asked the same questions, by their friends and interested parties, when out in Dartmouth, ‘Have you sold them all?’ ‘How many have you sold?’ and ‘How many have you got left?’ 

Their response: "No, we haven’t sold them all, yes, we’ve sold 33 properties so far and yes, we still have 5 remaining.

"We have just released two more properties last weekend, a two bedroom apartment and a one bedroom apartment. These, along with the other 3 remaining, come fully furnished to the highest standard by top London Interior Designers, RDD. We offer complimentary Spa membership to all purchasers.

"We are also very proud to have been awarded the ‘Best Marine Development’ award and ‘Best Development, Devon’ award by a top national newspaper. So that’s another feather in Dartmouth’s cap." If anyone is interested in viewing these luxury properties, please ring the sales office on 01803 837119, open daily from 10am to 4pm.  Prices start from £495,000

4.     Two local food suppliers make it big

Two local businesses have been chosen to take part in a 6 month distribution pilot run by Paignton-based Caterfood for Devon Food and  Drink.  Manna from Devon in Kingswear and the Dartmouth Ice Cream Company are 2 of only 6 local companies selected to test out the new system.

It means their luscious brownies and puddings and über creamy ice creams &  fruity sorbets can be had anywhere in the South West overnight in Caterfood's  vans, specially designed to carry frozen, chilled and ambient produce.

"I never though I'd get excited about distribution" said Manna from Devon's Holly Jones who makes all their brownies and puddings by hand from local ingredients. "However I am happy to be proved wrong - by
hooking up with Caterfood, who are distribution experts, we can  concentrate on what we do best. Now our products are available throughout the South West to shops, caterers and visitor attractions. It also releases a whole day of my week previously spent making deliveries. Lovely as it is to pootle round the South Hams, I don't  think it would go down too well on Dragon's Den!"
