About Us

Welcome to the About Us page!

Keep reading to find out more about our brilliant location and the services that we provide.

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 half-hour 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.

 

At the entrance, our coded electric gate 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 non residential moorings as well as short-time holiday moorings. We also provide short-term Hardstand deals for boat maintenance
