We are situated a short distance down river from the picturesque town of Sandwich in Kent.
Our marina is perfectly tucked away on the banks of the River Stour set in a peaceful location with riverside views of open countryside.
The estuary of the River Stour is only a 45 minute journey down river where you can often be greeted by a rookery of common seals. It has been said that if you are lucky you can spot 200 or more on a single visit.
The marina itself is also accessible by road through Sandwich Industrial Estate. At the entrance you will be met by a coded electric gate which is set by timer to be open during marina opening hours only. Access outside of working hours is gained by entering a code on the keypad. The marina also operates a CCTV system for added security.
Our marina provides both moorings and hard standing for leisure vessels both residential and non-residential and as a working marina, we welcome vessels by both road and sea all year round for maintenance works as well as lengthy lay-up periods. We offer hassle free maintenance programmes for those who perhaps do not have the time or expertise to take on certain aspects of their boat maintenance. In order to request a quotation whether it be for a pressure wash or a multitude of tasks go to our ‘Services’ tab located on the home page, click on ‘Boat Maintenance’ there you will find a ‘Tick Box’ form which you can complete and submit online.
We have our own slipway which is also available for use by non-customers (click on the ‘Fees’ tab to see our current charges). The fee includes if required parking for a vehicle and trailer if agreed prior to booking use of the slipway.
For those who need their boats lifting out we have a crane with a lifting capacity of 12 tonne and a boat hoist with a lifting capacity of 20 tonne, capable of lifting a vessel with a maximum beam of 17ft and a maximum length of 50ft.
For storage needs we have onsite containers of various sizes available for rent (for monthly charges see our current price list)
