Facilities And Marine Services

The East Coast”s Premier Marina is a bold claim, and one we feel fully justified in making, considering the outstanding facilities we offer.

The Shipwreck

The Shipwreck is our well established pub and restaurant. Its views are unrivalled and the ambience fantastic. It offers a wide range of drink, bar food as well as a full restaurant service.


With increased boat theft and vandalism no other Marina on the East Coast can offer the same level of security, giving you peace of mind knowing your boat will be safe and secure with staff permanently on site. This service is provided 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Access & Services

Access to the sheltered Marina from the sea is provided via a dredged channel to an ultra modern lock, manned 24 hours a day. There are 350 sheltered, non tidal berths. High grade aluminium pontoons provide wide, safe berths all with fresh water and metered electricity.

Washing facilities

There are four toilet blocks and two shower blocks. The cleaning staff ensure you will enjoy these modern, well lit facilities.

There is also a well equipped laundry room.

Chandlery & Fuel

A well stocked chandlery caters for all your boating needs, ie. clothing, charts, books, gifts and a large stock of fastenings. During the summer there is a good selection of general provisions and an off-licence.
