Leave your berth and hoist sails - no rivers or confined spaces to navigate.

We've got everything for sailors, motor boaters, divers and anglers, all on one site. Plus the beautiful Jurassic Coast is our back garden.

Our Berths

The marina is totally accessible by land and sea 24/7, so you can come and go as you please.


The marina office, washrooms and laundry are located ashore at the top of the access ramp. The office is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

You'll never have to queue in our huge washrooms, and you also don't need tokens or coins for a shower.

Boat yard

We have dedicated facilities on-site. Please visit our boatyard page for more information.
