Rules & Regulations of Cruising Club


  1. The Cruising Club scheme is exclusive to and promoted by Marina Developments Limited (MDL) and is available to all boat owners who submit a completed application form.
  2. Cruising Club cards remain the property of MDL and must be returned to MDL on request or destroyed when no longer valid for use.
  3. Cruising Club cards are personal to the boat and can only be used in conjunction with the vessel named on the card.
  4. If a Cruising Club card is lost the card holder should contact MDL immediately. MDL cannot be held responsible for any unauthorised use of Points or any lost or stolen cards.
  5. Cruising Club cards will be swiped by the marina staff when an overnight fee is paid at the current published tariff rate. One Point will be earned for each full paid overnight stay. When six Points have been gained, the seventh night will be free.
  6. Points may only be redeemed against overnight berthing and cannot be transferred or used in any other way.
  7. The free night entitlement cannot be accumulated.
  8. To earn Points the Cruising Club card must be valid and presented prior to payment. Payment made without the card cannot be recorded and therefore Points cannot be added. However, Points may be added at the Company’s discretion.
  9. Cruising Club cards and Points have no expiry date but Points are lost if the Cruising Club scheme ends.
  10. Redeemed Points cannot be used again. If a transaction on which Points are issued or redeemed is cancelled, MDL will reverse the associated Points.
  11. Points information, in respect of Points earned or redeemed, is available from each MDL Marina Office.
  12. Applicants must be aged 18 or over.
  13. It is the responsibility of the card holder to notify MDL of any change of address or personal details.
  14. MDL reserves the right to decline issue, withdraw the card or terminate the Cruising Club scheme by giving card holders reasonable notice.
  15. MDL reserves the right to alter the terms and conditions of the scheme. Any change will be notified by the display of notices at MDL marinas and on the MDL website. Earning or redeeming Points on a Cruising Club card will constitute acceptance of the revised terms and conditions.
  16. The operation of the Cruising Club scheme is subject to MDL’s Marina Regulations.
  17. Overnight berthing is available at any UK MDL marina and is subject to availability, local arrangements and departure times. In some cases, during busy periods, the qualifying vessel may be required to be rafted alongside another boat.
  18. This offer cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer.
