About us

Big enough to cope, small enough to care

Our motto remains as relevant today as it has been since our formation in 2006, despite now owning 11 marinas around the country, providing over 2500 berths. We are a customer-focused company, committed to going the extra mile to provide convenient, personal and efficient services to our customers.

Castle Marinas owns eleven marinas in outstanding locations. Two coastal marinas at the hub of UK sailing and motorboating on the South Coast, and nine marinas surrounding the heart of the UK's inland waterways. Our coastal locations are Royal Clarence Marina in Portsmouth and Birdham Pool in Chichester Harbours. Our nine inland marinas are perfectly distributed to cruise the UK canal network and include some of the UK's leading locations. 

A relaxed atmosphere, friendly people and good services is part of the Castle Marinas ethos.

Our main objective is to offer you a safe, secure and enjoyable berthing environment, a sense of family and community, and group-wide benefits. Both Inland and coastal marinas offer reciprocal berthing arrangements. Fin out about our flexi-bething and our introductory scheme.

The past

The company was set up in 2006 by two of the UK's leading marina experts John Harding and Sam Bourne, with the backing of one of the UK's leading entrepreneurs. Our purpose is to offer great facilities, service and value, to provide safe and secure berthing and access to services needed to get the most out of boating.

The future

To date we have a portfolio of 11 marinas fulfilling this brief, and remain proactive in our approach to acquire further marinas that complement our offer.

Castle Marinas - The UK Marina Company big enough to offer excellent service, but small enough to give you and your boat the personal touch.
