Port Medway Marina: Welcome to Port Medway Marina, a stunning Marina situated on the River Medway near Rochester in Kent, offering the ideal location for the modern day boat owner. The Marina provides the perfect base from which to explore the surrounding area, from the non-tidal river (Tonbridge to Allington) through the tidal river (Rochester and Sheerness) and ultimately providing access to the River Thames, East Coast rivers and the continent (including the French and Dutch inland waterways).
The Marina is set in an ideal location with close proximity to London (44 minutes by train to St Pancras International), Whitstable (38 minutes by car), Maidstone (31 minutes by car) and Rochester (13 minutes by car). Excellent road links to the M2 (2 minutes) and the M20 (10 minutes). The Marina is complimented by a wide variety of local attractions including the Historic Dockyard, Leeds Castle and Bluewater Shopping Village.
Port Medway Marina is one of the largest Marina’s on the River Medway extending to nearly 28 acres, with over 1000 metres of river frontage providing picturesque views over the Kent countryside. We currently offer over 950 metres of fully serviced pontoons, 1000 metres of quayside moorings (suitable for larger vessels such as barges) and a vast storage ashore area (located in three secure compounds). We currently have lifting facilities to cater for vessels up-to 20 ton in weight and 16 metres in length.
Dry dock – we have been operating our dry dock for over 15 years and are able to accommodate vessels up-to 40 metres in length. This has proven to be very attractive for customers, with barges motoring down from the River Thames and East Coast rivers.
Blasting and Welding – we offer a full range of blasting services enabling the removal of one layer of paint (e.g. last years’ antifouling) or the full removal back to the original steel or GRP surface. We have the ability to undertake any welding works from simple rivet repairs to the full over-plating of the entire hull of a 40 metre barge.
We are proud to be an ambassador for the RNLI – “the charity that saves lives at sea”.
Future plans include the installation of a 65 ton boat hoist, construction of a larger dry dock and the establishment of a delightful country park encompassing three lakes (situated adjacent to Medway Valley Park).
