The Royal Solent Yacht Club is located on the seafront next to Yarmouth Pier on the Isle of Wight and enjoys unrivalled views of the Western Solent.
In addition to running a comprehensive summer sailing programme for members, the Club also hosts a number of regattas and championships, the best known being the Taittinger Regatta which takes place each July.
First established in 1878, the club has been extensively renovated and extended throughout its history and in spring 2019, the main bar on the first floor of the clubhouse was rebuilt to provide a light, contemporary space from which to enjoy panoramic views of the Solent.
In summer 2022, The Royal Solent Yacht Club chose Dura Composites to provide its Dura Deck Tiles in stunning Pebble Grey colour to enhance the facilities of its balcony and terrace area, providing a wood-look anti-slip composite timber flooring that’s suitable for all footwear and weather conditions.
The interlocking tiles are extremely simple and quick to lay and don’t need expensive bearers or joist systems to sit on. They can be added on top of any existing firm and flat surface such as the concrete clubhouse terrace at the Yacht Club, where they helped achieve an instant transformation that has the look and feel of traditional timber decking, but with none of the installation challenges.
Available in 3 sleek colours; Pebble Grey, Weathered Cedar and Mahogany, our Dura Deck Tiles are the ideal solution for creating that mesmerising scene that blends into any beautiful backdrop.
Speaking about the project, Claire Hallett CEO/Club Secretary for the Royal Solent Yacht Club said:
“We are delighted with the premium look that has been achieved by using Dura Deck Tiles on the Club’s terrace, which perfectly complements the clean lines and contemporary design of our bar area.
The tiles were quick and easy for us to lay ourselves, but instantly transformed the terrace into a more appealing and accessible space during the day and evening”.
