To all our customers,

For the safety of all customers and staff until further notice the office and shop will remain closed for all but essential services such as key collection.

The main front gates will be closed to the general public, but berth holders with their security cards may still currently access their boats should they choose. Please be aware we are not able to disinfect the trolleys. Where possible we will honour all lift out and launches but we are completely booked until 8th April at time of writing, if you attend we will ask you to keep to a safe distance (minimum 2m as per latest government advice).

Please be patient, we are working with a reduced staff but we will answer all telephone and email enquiries as promptly as possible.  

If not immediately available the phone diverts to my mobile, it does pause before ringing. Please continue to ring 01665 712 168, send email enquiries to, or send an enquiry through the website or facebook. It would really help if deliveries could be sent to home addresses especially for anything small.   

Security rounds continue to be made daily and CCTV monitored away from site, there are 32 high definition cameras in operation. There is a new key safe in the laundry in the unlikely event your electricity trips – again call or email for access. Diesel and gas and when possible, brokerage viewings can also be booked in advance. High levels of cleanliness will be maintained in the shower and toilet facilities and antibacterial soap is provided.   

All updates will be posted to the Channel 80 news page on our website.

Stay safe and look after each other. Normal service to resume as soon as possible.

Kind regards

Karl and the team.
