Kings Orchard Marina

The marina comprises 89 berths each with its own metered electricity and water on fully secure pontoons incorporating non-slip decking that are serviced by two sets of toilet and showers. There are also nine Gold Service private showers and toilets for the sole and exclusive use of individual boat owners and their families and friend for which an additional charge applies.

The larger of the two facilities buildings contains in addition to toilets and showers the marina office and shop, laundry facilities and storage, with pump out and diesel sales on the adjacent wharf plus Elsan disposal close to the smaller building.

Kings Orchard Marina has been built to the highest standards throughout. Oak beams and limestone floors are prominent in the construction of the facilities buildings while the fixtures and fittings range from a sophisticated security key system to top of the range sanitary ware, a new high speed pump out unit and the very latest in fuel pumps.

There is ample free parking for moorers and their friends around the site

We believe Kings Orchard Marina sets a new benchmark for quality on the canal system. Why not contact our caretaker now on 01543 433608 to discuss availability of moorings and private bathrooms for your own exclusive use?
