A year of change at Venetian Marina

What an unusual 12 months we have all been through!!!

We are now firmly into Spring, the weather is improving, the blossom is budding, the birds are chirping and finally we can get back to some kind of normality. 


From Monday 29th March our leisure berth holders will be able to visit their boat at the marina with over night stays allowed from Monday 12th April.


We are continuing to closely monitor Government announcements regarding Covid 19, and will keep you updated via our website and social media pages of any changes, but we're hoping that we have seen our last National lockdown. 




Although the canals have been very quiet and the marinas have been closed our team have been working away behind the scenes remotely. We have seen a huge increase in demand for boats for sale and the market has been extremely buoyant. We have had to adapt to a new way of working which saw us creating more in depth walk-through videos of any boats for sale. Some boats have sold based on videos and dealings have been completed via phone & e-mail. 

Our sales office is currently closed but once the National lock down is lifted we will be offering viewings on sales boats again, but by strict appointments only, and dealings will continue to be done remotely for now. We hope to welcome people back into our office space in the future. 

Do you have a boat to sell? We can help you, we don't just list boats for sale we actively get them sold. Give us a call on 01270 528251 to have a chat or drop us an e-mail to 

Or visit our website for more information.


If you moor with us and require assistance you can come to the office if needed but please keep your distance. Our staff will greet you wearing a mask for your safety and our own. 


As most of you already know we have three independently run businesses located at Venetian Marina. All three businesses can be contacted directly by phone and all three have a presence on various social media platforms. Please follow their pages for their latest news and updates. 


Venetian Hire Boats & Chandlery

Sue & BJ have continued to work throughout the pandemic offering boaters and locals alike critical supplies. I've said it many times but it is so true, their shop is very much an Aladdins cave of delights, everything from a can of beans to a new tiller pin. Currently the chandlery is open Wed- Sun 10-4 but please speak to Sue direct as these hours may change once the lockdown is lifted. Your can reach the chandlery on 01270 528122 or visit their website for more information.


Cover & Canvas

Nik joined the Venetian family summer 2021 with his already very successful cover business. If you require a new cratch cover or even a cover repair then Nik is your man. Nik lives aboard his own boat and has been around boats for many years where he has gathered a wealth of knowledge, you will find him located between the main marina office and the chandlery. For all enquiries please contact Nik direct on 07402 041165 or visit their website for more details.


Venetian Tearooms

Andrea has worked tirelessly during the pandemic to stay afloat as Venetian, to her is 'home'. After offering an extensive take-away  and delivery service, regrettably in December Andrea made the very difficult decision to close her doors until such a time as she could fully open again. We have taken the opportunity to give Andrea a sparkling new cooker to work from when she returns so please get behind her and get those bacon butties and fry ups on order. Andrea can be contacted via her Facebook page. 

Finally, we would like to sincerely say thank you to everybody who has supported Venetian Marina during this difficult time. We hope you have enjoyed our bad jokes on social media and in turned laughed with us, if we have made just one of you smile then we have done our job! 

We hope you all get behind all of the businesses on site this year and lets all keep positive and make summer 2021 a great season.
