About the Marina


Bridgemarsh Marina is different as

Welcome to Bridgemarsh Marina, it is different as it is non corporate and owned and run by a local farming family,

It is the friendliest, best value marina on the crouch and closest to the mainline station.

We like small boats.

Berths are available from + or - one hour for high water springs to continuous float for boats of one and half metre draft. For metre draft boats marina access is guaranteed at + or -  4 hrs high tide even at springs and longer thereafter. 

Depending on demand, rafting up agreements can be considered to reduce the rates even further.

The owners feel that they are reading the market well at the moment. The marina  is effectively full presently and expansion options are being considered. Red tape will probably make it unaffordable though.

No commission is charged on boat sales on site (as is the case with our caravans changing hands) ,

Owners are also permitted to undertake repairs and bring in outside contractors should they so wish
