Welcome to Crick Marina

Office Opening Hours:
Monday - Sunday: 0900 to 1700 

Since opening in 1996, Crick Marina has quickly become one of the most sought-after marinas in the country, based on its unspolled and central location, and since 2000, its annual boat show.

Despite its convenient position just a mile from the M1 and close to the bustling towns of Rugby and Northampton, Crick is deliciously peaceful.

On arrival, it is very easy to adjust to the slower, more leisurely pace, set by the friendly moorers and staff. It has a unique character, with all the traits of a traditional country retreat. blended with modern facilities, a professional, knowledgeable team and on site marine services.

Crick accommodates 270 fully serviced berths across 2 basins, suitable for narrowboats and cruisers. Sitting directly on the Grand Union Canal on a 21-mile lock-free pound it promotes relaxed weekends afloat, yet also provides easy access to all major cruising routes.

The marina benefits a fully enclosed dry dock, managed by Crick Docking Services and a boat brokerage operated in conjunction with ABNB Ltd.

Berth holders can also enjoy FREE Wi-Fi and FREE weekend passes for Crick Boat Show, held every year on the second May Bank Holiday Weekend.

  • Steve Eaton

    Being the newest member of the Crick Marina Team I have been boating for three years having lived in Crick since 2006.

    Born in Far Cotton, Northampton I have lived in Northamptonshire in various villages all my life.

    I am a retired Police Officer, being a dog handler for the major part of my service. I previously served in the Royal Engineers abroad and in the UK. Since retiring in 2008 I have worked as an undertaker, office manager and for Mercedes as a demonstrator driver before taking up this new challenge.

    Being married to a lady whose name is Marina makes things easy to remember but does sometimes cause confusion. Having two sons and six grandchildren keeps us busy. The two border collies called Taff and Star who live with us have both won obedience competitions. They are great company keeping us entertained with their tricks.

    My hobbies are shooting, archery, reading and researching family history.

    I am really enjoying my new role as Harbourmaster with the variety and challenges it brings and I am happy to help with any requests you may have.
