About Us

Essex Marina was owned by the Chester family and Tartan Arrow Marine Group until 1998 when the Marina was purchased by Mr. Robin Levy who was responsible for the development of the Burnham Yacht Harbour.

In December 2005 Essex Marina was bought by Essex Boatyards Ltd, and then came under the Boats Ltd brand (boats.co.uk), who will continue to develop and improve the facilities long into the future.

Essex Marina now has been upgraded with the addition of a new 70 ton travel hoist, slipway, new access walkways and new pontoons, all by Intermarine. Also in 2006 ground works to improve the internal roadways and boat storage area ashore will be completed.

Essex Marina has the attraction and advantage of up to 500 deep water moorings, including 50 swinging moorings all with access to the sea at all states of the tide. The Marina is located just 7 miles from Southend on Sea and Basildon and serves an urban population of up to half a million people within less than 30 minutes driving time.
