CHOICE OF LINEAR & FINGER MOORINGS
Some marinas feature finger moorings and some linear moorings. Here at North Kilworth we give you the choice – the convenience of finger moorings if that’s what you prefer, or the cost effectiveness and added space to the side of your boat which comes with a linear mooring. Whichever you choose, all our moorings are divided into separate pocketed areas, increasing privacy and minimising exposure to the wind. Click here for Mooring Plan
Pump-out & Diesel
COVERED FUELLING & PUMP-OUT
No more getting soaked if it’s raining and you require a pump-out or a tank full of diesel. Our new workshop building features a covered “filling station” area where you can re-fuel, pump-out or carry out small maintenance jobs protected from the elements.
To the side of our lift-out dock we have a dedicated blacking area where we can pressure wash and black boats during the week, or if so inclined you can do-it-yourself on one of our DIY blacking weekends. We’ll pressure wash the boat for you on the Friday leaving you to complete the work ready for a lift back in on the following Monday. A popular facility at our sister marina, Debdale Wharf, and one the can prove most cost effective.
STATE OF THE ART WORKSHOPS
We’re very proud of our new workshop building. It’s still taking shape, but when fully completed will house separate mechanical, carpentry and paintshop areas. All are “drive-in” facilities where boats can easily enter via roller shutter doors and work can be completed in a climate controlled environment with full underfloor heating. The upper floor will house an extensive parts inventory with a chandlers shop catering for all your boating needs.
SECURE PARKING, CCTV AND KEYCODE ACCESS
When completed, the site will be protected with a security fence, CCTV cameras and keycode/keyfob access to all mooring and car park areas. Entry from the road incorporates a sliding gate and pedestrian access to and from the towpath will be via electrically controlled gates, only accessible to moorers possessing the necessary keyfob/keycode.
DEDICATED CARPENTRY WORKSHOP
You would expect most marinas to offer at least a basic mechanical repair shop, but here at North Kilworth we have not just a fully equipped mechanical shop, but a dedicated carpentry and boat fit-out facility. Offering true cabinet-making skills, we are able to tackle anything from installing a new shower or kitchen to a complete boat re-fit.
PROFESSIONAL BOAT PAINTING
Our purpose designed, climate controlled paintshop is operated by acclaimed traditional narrowboat painter John Barnard. Specialising in full, back to metal repaints, John is the only boat painter in the entire country to be awarded a certificate of craftmanship from two leading paint manufacturers – Epifanes and International Paints.
WiFi, ELECTRICITY AND WATER TO ALL STAGINGS
A high speed WiFi system available throughout the marina and water, not just provided bank-side but also direct to every stage. A generous number of electrical sockets means a minimum of trailing cables and everything controlled by the same keyfob/keycode used to gain access via the marina gates.
BOAT LAUNCHING INCL WIDEBEAMS
Two boat lifting docks, one of which can take take full length widebeam craft. Easy access to the marina from the main A4304 and just 10 minutes from the M1, means there couldn’t be a better place for launching a boat onto the inland waterways.
