Fairline Squadron 58 in the shed

Wednesday, December 19th, 2012

Whitehaven Marina welcomed a Fairline Squadron 58 to the boatyard this month – the third of its type to visit the marina with the same owner.  Like the previous two, the boat was cleaned antifouled, polished and reassembled at Whitehaven – testimony to the fantastic standard of service offered by the team.  The boat spent a week in the shed with the owner choosing the marina because of the facilities and quality of work available.

Winter precautions

A frozen Whitehaven Marina

Marina customers are reminded that we will be taking safety measures in the marina to help during the colder periods including turning off the water supply, gritting pontoons and checking electricity hook ups.

Please note that to prevent any damage to the pipes and systems we will be switching off pontoon water supplies from Christmas Eve until the beginning of March (weather dependent).  We will also be gritting the pontoons which can be very slippery when wet or icy.  Please take care when in the marina to prevent accidents.

The team will also be keeping an eye on electricity point hook ups to ensure everything is as it should be.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us at the office on 01946 692435 or

Winter maintenance in action

Friday, October 5th, 2012

It’s that time of year again for the Whitehaven Marina team to commence the Winter Maintenance Programme.  Work has begun on the South Harbour Pontoons with three of the five already pressure washed in the first week of October.

Over the coming weeks, the team will continue to pressure wash the pontoons as well as replacing damaged boards, fixing cleats, cleaning bollards and replacing emergency pods that need attention.  In addition they will also be cleaning the Bulwark Quay and Boatyard.

If you have any specific requests or suggestions for us to look at please don’t hesitate to contact Marina Supervisor, Tony Taylor.
