Frequently Asked Questions

Can I pop in to visit you?

Absolutely! We can get busy – especially on weekends – so if you would like to view a particular boat, we do recommend you book an appointment with us by calling 01189 403211.

How much does it cost to keep a boat?

A general rule of thumb is that if you take your mooring fee, and double it, that will typically be the average cost for looking after your boat each year. This includes insurance, river licence, maintenance, wear and tear repairs, plus a good amount of fuel (assuming you’re sailing on inland waterways, not offshore powerboating).

Do you have moorings available?

For the last few years our moorings have been full. Our current waiting list is for those who have purchased a new boat through us, so sadly it is often tricky to get a space in our marina for existing boat owners.

Can you sell my boat?

If it’s a motorboat in good condition, then most likely – yes! We will be fully transparent about the asking price of your boat, and we will only encourage you to list with us when we are confident we can get great value for you. We specialise in glass-fibre motorboats from £10,000 through to £500,000 – and can lift boats up to 42 foot / 14 tonnes. If we cannot help, we’d be more than happy to recommend an alternative broker.

Do you have space for a narrowboat?

Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate narrowboats as our moorings are limited in size and we can only lift motorboats

Do you have chandlery?

MEC Marine runs a chandlery in Willow Marina, but they are a separate business to us, so please call them directly on 01189 401141.
