About the Marina

Fambridge Marina can be found up Stow Creek, about halfway along the northern shores of the River Crouch. The marina was previously known as Westwick Marina, a family run marina for over 30 years, and its know the latest addition to the ‘Yacht Haven’ Group. Stow Creek is set between saltings and farmland amidst the beautiful Essex countryside, and the natural character of the marina has blended in with little disturbance to the sensitive surroundings. Fambridge marina itself doesn’t have any dedicated berths for visitors, directing visiting yachtsmen instead to the marina’s alternative site at the Yacht Station, found a cable downstream of the River Crouch. Here there are swinging moorings, fully serviced mud berths and a 120m long visitors pontoon which is accessible at all states of the tide. The Yacht Station is only a short ten minute walk away from the marina and visitors are welcome to use the marina facilities as well as those at the Yacht Station. Alternatively, a water taxi runs between the two sites from June through to Oct. To the north of the Yacht Station is the village of North Fambridge which has a few shops for provisions as well as Ferryboat Inn - a popular watering hole for the local boating fraternity.

Marina Approaches

At Shortpole Reach, the North Fambridge YC will be cleanly seen on the northern shore, and the 120m long pontoon marks the location of the Fambridge Yacht Station. To enter the marina, continue through the swinging moorings until you come to Stow Post - a single pile mark which marks the entrance to Stow Creek. Leave the post to starboard and continue up the centre of Stow Creek whilst keeping a watchful eye on the depth. At night, use the two white leading lights for guidance up the creek.
