Situated on the Kennet and Avon Canal in Newbury, just upstream from Ham Lock, Ham Manor Marina offers moorings for over 70 narrow boats and barges in an attractive and beautifully maintained offline moorings basin.
Established in 1973 by Bill and Sue Fisher, Newbury Boat Company has always been a family run business, now owned and operated by Emma and Derek Fearnley, their daughter and son-in-law.
As resident owners, we take pride in our reputation for excellent customer service, in a friendly and much admired marina which is situated within a Site of Special Scientific Interest. We have well established areas of planting, natural reeds and a small copse bordering the river.
We have resident staff and electric security gates to our well lit car park. There is also security lighting throughout the marina with sensors so moorers can safely gain access to their boats after dark. You will see a map and directions to find us on the Contact Us page, as, although we are handily close to Newbury, we are well hidden from the road, so even local people don’t know the marina is here.
We are conveniently close to excellent transport routes including the M4, A4 and A34. Newbury has a very good east / west rail service from London to the West Country and connections to all other areas via Reading. We even have a bus stop near by if you prefer not to walk or drive into town.
Our long term Non-Residential moorings are let for a minimum period of 12 months payable quarterly or annually in advance. Please call or e-mail to find out our current moorings availability and then complete our application form on line or print one and return it to us. When we can offer you a berth we will ask for a security deposit of £200.00, the deposit will be refunded, subject to our mooring conditions, when you relinquish the berth. Twelve weeks written notice is required when relinquishing a berth.
If you are interested in further details please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be pleased to help on the phone or via e-mail or arrange for you to visit. We do ask that appointments to visit are by prior arrangement only please; to ensure we have the most suitable person here to assist you.
