We’ve been dry stack berth holders at Saxon Wharf for the past three years. The marina offers great facilities, really knowledgeable staff and on-site engineers. There’s a real community spirit at Saxon Wharf and all of the staff and other berth holders are very friendly. We regularly socialise with other MDL berth holders, and as we get fuel at cost we can take advantage of cruising freely between all of the MDL UK marinas at no additional cost!
Chris Cowan, Saxon Wharf
We use Ocean Village Marina to run our business out of, as well as for pleasure time. Ocean Village Marina is in a fantastic location, close to lots of facilities, plentiful parking and easy for our clients to get to. It’s also a great place to watch the world go by and see a selection of super and classic yachts all year round. All of the staff, both in the office and on the dock are always helpful and do all they can to help us run our business smoothly.

We’ve been berth holders at Chatham for over four years. Compared to other marinas we visit, Chatham stands out for us for its facilities and friendliness. The staff are always pleasant and helpful, there’s a great atmosphere, the marina is always kept clean and tidy, and the 24 hour access at all states of the tide is certainly a benefit. It’s where you will find us every weekend during the summer!
Bob Ludlow, Chatham Maritime Marina
We’ve been berth holders for the past nine years. Northney Marina is a little gem and by far the best marina experience I have had. It’s really easy to access, competitively priced, and you always feel at home as the staff are so friendly and helpful.
Peter Bottomley, Northney Marina
I am just going into my third year as an MDL berth holder. Brixham is close to my home and I fully take advantage of that – visiting the marina whenever I get the opportunity, particularly during the summer. The team at Brixham are really approachable, knowledgeable and friendly and are always on hand if you need them.
