MARINA, CHANDLERY & BOAT SALES

Welcome to the Oundle Marina Village website and to the beautiful River Nene.

The Marina was created nearly 60 years ago by creating a cut through from the River Nene and flooding the local gravel pits, and has been managed by the same family for most of that time – Mark Nye is the current manager.

This has now grown into a marina with 191 non-residential moorings plus dedicated visitor moorings that can be booked in advance. The whole site covers an area of about 22 acres with over half of that being the marina which means plenty of space for the boats, no overcrowding here!

As well as the moorings there is also a well-stocked Chandlery, a gantry that can launch boats up to 62ft long, slipway, diesel & petrol, shower & laundrette and workshops where we can carry out any boat repairs, boat painting and engine servicing.

RIVER NENE UPDATE

3rd September 2017.  The EA are continuing to check all boats on the river for licenses, licenses should be displayed along with the registration number and boat name on both sides. Please check EA website for any works that are being done along the river. Another great source of info is the Friends of the River Nene website, also a nice way of meeting fellow boaters.

STRONG STREAM ADVICE (SSA)

The Environment Agency issues SSA to inform river users when river levels are increasing and when locks are being prepared to discharge flood water. Notice boards, flags and lights are displayed prominently on river banks to inform boaters of the status of the river. There is an EA 24 hour SSA hotline 0345 988 1188 or 0845 988 1188, choose option 1 then dial 032112 for the River Nene. Alternatively you can be added to the free SSA messaging system, find details on the EA website.

CHANDLERY

The Chandlery is usually open 6 days a week 9.00 – 5.00, only closed on Wednesdays, however from 9th – 24th September 2017 the hours will be 9-12.30 & 1.00-5.00 and the shop/office will also be closed on Mondays. This is because of staff holidays and thanks to Nene Valley Boats for stepping in so we can have a break! We  have Calor Gas, Homefire Ovals (£12.50/20kg), Logs (£4.50) and Kindling (£4.50)  – you can park right next to the loading area or we can load you up on the quayside here. Our red diesel is only 70p per litre for heating.
