Egypt unrest causes marina withdrawal
- Sun, 6 Mar 2011
Marina operator Camper & Nicholsons has suspended its management of its Red Sea marina in the light of the recent political unrest in the Middle East.
C&N, which also operates marinas in Turkey, Italy, Malta and Grenada, has handed back management of Hurghada Marina in Egypt to its owners for the foreseeable future.
James Beaver, C&N's operations director, said: 'The unprecedented situation in Egypt has inevitably had an impact on the country's commercial enterprises and in particular the leisure and tourism industry.
'We have therefore agreed with the owners of Hurghada Marina that our service agreement be suspended until such time as the political and business environment improves and stability returns.'
