Kip Marina

There are 620 protected pontoon berths available 24 hours a day seven days a week for vessels up to 24m with a maximum draft of 3.5 metres.

All pontoon berths are serviced with 240v power and fresh water points. The pontoons and wide water access channels make life very straight forward for manoeuvring your vessel within the Marina.

We have a 50 ton Wise boat hoist which can accommodate up to 5.9m beam. For smaller craft there is a 25 ton crane that is also used for stepping/unstepping masts.

The yard accommodates up to 150 boats on hard standing on cradles. It is our policy to store masts off the vessels whilst they are ashore. Electricity and metered electricity are available in the storage areas.

The Marina office is open 365 days of the year. All visitors should contact the Marina office on or before arrival to arrange a suitable berth.

Diesel fuel and gas are available 24 hours through Marina Reception. Night Security personnel are on duty to deal with immediate requirements out of normal business hours.
