Life on a narrowboat can be as peaceful as it is idyllic BUT you need to understand the pros, cons, highs, lows, and day to day logistics in living on England's inland waterways. Let me help you find out all you need to know before you commit to what could be a very expensive mistake.
Redhill Marina offers you a friendly and thoroughly professional boating service at the heart of the East Midlands waterway network that ranges from riverside and marina mooring to chandlery, marine storage, boat hire and boat sales.
Our slipway is available for day and general access to the river and canal network. Cranage is also available up to 100 tonnes – prices on request.
We have full haul-out services for anti-fouling and reblacking, with an undercover work area for short-term repairs and refurbishments/painting.
But waterway navigation is only part of Redhill Marina’s potential attractions – you may choose to stay in our caravan and camping park, rent a residential mooring, invest in a superb riverside village home or even select one of our building plots to construct your dream lifestyle from scratch.[table id=58 /]
