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 and trade at £1/ ft/ week.

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.

It has a ship club house Club Nautico which floats on the tide and offers a free membership to adults who think they might be interested in boats. Please see link below.

Bridgemarsh Marina in Althorne, Facilities for boaties include a capitainerie, loos and showers, a convenience shop as well as a launderette opening soon.

The Boatyard

As well as standard bits and paints etc., the marina sells diesel in cans at 55 p per litre and a range of gas bottles for example the large 47 kg propane again sells at £55.

The marina is run by Little John  (who has worked here for 25 years) ,  and also his son Jake.

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

Club Nautico

Club Nautico opened in 2016 at Bridgemarsh Marina to provide a base for the 200 or so boat owners on site.  A licensed bar with sun decks together with an upstairs dinning room provide a nautical atmosphere alike.

Credit card cash back facility available at the bar
