[TODAY ONLY] Thornham Marina Saturday Showround

Good morning, the early bird catches the worm!

So I did a video this morning, just showing the pontoon berths (ok it's not Hollywood but it's early and chilly and the cameraman wasn't up for it!)

I can show you the electrics and water supply to each individual pontoon, all the great facilities and showers etc.

Give me a call so I know you're on your way (and sorry if I woke you up!) - Call me on 01243 375 335.

Check out the amazing feedback we received from a few boat owners that wintered at Thornham Marina this year...   

With many thanks for your support over the years. If I ever take ownership in a boat in the nearby waters, Thornham Marina will be top of my list!
Peter Baker

I just wanted to say thanks to you and the rest of the team for looking after Cyclone over the winter.
Thornham really is a friendly place, staffed by people who clearly enjoy their work and take a pride in it. Witnessing the shores being checked prior to a blow and the care taken with boat movements gives an owner real confidence.
I particularly appreciated the extra effort made to launch Cyclone to schedule - and being kept informed of developments - following a problem with the boat lift.
Please pass on my good wishes to the rest of the team.
Rob, Cyclone of Langstone

Thanks again for all your highly efficient and professional service over the winter.
Your team are brilliant and nothing seems too much trouble, please pass on my thanks to everyone.
Have a great summer, see you next winter.
Tony, Pegasus

I'd like to express my thanks all of the Thornham staff who looked after my Crabber, 'Maudie IV', over the winter.
The friendly service, care and attention to detail of Arnie and the boys in the yard was simply outstanding and nothing seemed too much trouble for them.
I have no doubt that we'll be back with you at the end of the coming season.
Paul Deslandes, Maudie IV

Thank you to everyone for your lovely comments after your winter stay. 

We hope you all have a great summer, and look forward to welcoming you all in the autumn.
