About Us

Get to know
Val Wyatt Marine

Established in 1845, Val Wyatt Marine is an independently owned boutique marina with over 175 years of experience of boats and boating.

We’ve connected families with their perfect boat, maintained vessels from renowned brands – including Interboat, Haines and Corsiva – and proudly built a unique and well-loved marina that welcomes hundreds of happy boating enthusiasts like you from near and far.

We may be smaller than other marinas, but that means we can offer a more personalised, complete and consistent experience. From buying a boat and providing it with a home, to looking after it during your ownership and facilitating a sale when you’re ready.


The Val Wyatt team strives to create a warm and welcoming vibe that is inclusive to all. We are open seven days a week to talk boats and boating. And we recommend a visit to our onsite coffee shop (open April to October) and adjoining decking. With a perfect view of the river and its activities, it is a great opportunity to learn more about us and get a glimpse of what boating life is all about.

Our Values

Integrity at heart

Integrity means no ‘hard sell’, and always doing what is right for you. Sometimes that means recommending other products or services if we’re not best placed to support you.

Customer focus

We are focused on excellent customer service, delivering peace of mind and impartial knowledge and advice to boat owners of all ages, experience and backgrounds.

Professionalism and respect

From the smallest of interactions to our long-standing relationships, we treat each and every marina visitor, and each other, with courtesy and respect.

Fun and friendly

Life can be stressful, so we ensure that Val Wyatt’s very own place by the water, Willow Marina, is a welcoming place with approachable people where boat lovers can feel at home and amongst friends.

Sustainable and innovative

We are mindful of our footprint and we respect our surroundings, so we evolve our processes to find more innovative ways of working – for the benefit of people and planet.

What to expect

Exceptional customer service
We understand the financial and emotional investment of a boat purchase. So, our team is dedicated to supporting buyers with sound, professional advice at every step of the journey. Visit us in person at our floating houseboat office – right on the river’s edge.

Exclusive partnerships
We are proud to be the sole UK importers for Interboat, Intercruiser and Corsiva, and one of only two agents selling Haines cabin cruisers.  We offer a broad portfolio of industry-leading models – and we always keep an eye out for the next best thing.

Expertise as standard
We are fortunate to have a knowledgeable and enthusiastic team of experts who are well-versed in everything from sales and servicing to mooring and maintenance.

Exquisite surroundings
Our boutique marina is located on a stunning stretch of the River Thames in Wargrave, Berkshire. An ever-evolving site since the 1930s, this unique environment is the perfect place to relax and unwind amongst beautiful views and thriving wildlife.
