Shepperton Marina

The marina is set in a series of delightful lakes by grassy banks and established woodland. At first glance, it is hard to imagine that this tranquil setting offers such a convenient location, yet it has access to the main channel of the Lower Thames and the heart of London is only 30 minutes away by road.

{{{0}}}

Shepperton Marina is truly the best of both worlds for the discerning boat owner.

We offer all the amenities you would expect of a well-appointed marina, including secure, serviced berths, petrol and diesel fuel, full boat yard facilities and a large chandlery.

The marina you see today started life as a gravel pit and was purchased in 1978 for the purpose of building a marina.

Basin A was the first phase of the construction, followed by the building of Basin B. Over the years a number of changes have taken place around the marina to make it what it is today. We currently have 250 berths catering for a broad range of boats and the iindividual requirement – powered, non-powered, disabled access and visitors’ berths.We have lovely grounds for you to stroll around and enjoy – or you just might like to relax on your boat and enjoy the tranquil way of life and the wonderful wildlife that is so greatly enjoyed here at Shepperton.

The future is also looking very bright. It has been a long-held ambition for Shepperton Marina to expand and provide a wider range of berths and facilities to the mooring community on the lower reaches of the River Thames. That dream is about to become reality with Shepperton Marina being granted planning permission to increase the size of the marina from 250 to 455.

The 205 new berths will be situated in the West Lake which is part of the Shepperton Marina complex. The new moorings will cater for a wide range of vessels from Dutch barges to cruisers, day boats to narrow boats. It is hoped that the first boats to moor in the new C basin will be in by Christmas 2010.
