About the Marina

Cuxton Marina on the River Medway, overlooks beautiful unspoiled countryside and is about three miles upstream from the historic city of Rochester. Its a friendy and professional marina which once prided itself on its in-house marine engineering services, but is now concentrating on boatyard and mechanical repairs and RYA powerboat instruction courses. Moorings range from half tide moorings, which float HW±2; to outside linear berths, which float HW±4. Due to the Rochester and the Medway Bridges the marina only receives motorboats - the most upstream marina for yachts being Chatham or the Victory Moorings. The Medway is tidal as far as Allington lock which is operated by Lock-keepers. The nine locks above Allington may be operated by captain or crew. Tonbridge, some forty miles up the river from Sheerness, marks the end of the of the navigable section of the river. From here it is only possible to proceed by rowing boat of canoe.

The marina is right on the door step of the Cuxton Rail Station which connections all over Kent and into London via Rochester. Cuxton itself has a pub at the corner of Station Rd and a decent Co-op store along Bush Rd, about a 10min walk from the marina. At the corner of Station Rd there's also a bus stop with regular service to Rochester and Maidstone.
