Blackwater Marina lies on the UK's east coast in a natural, sheltered harbour between the historic maritime towns of Maldon and Burnham on Crouch. The Continent is a day's sail away, and London an hour by car or train. The marina has fully serviced pontoon berths for 196 vessels and hardstanding for another 150. In addition, its 100 swinging moorings can offer access at all states of the tide to the region's best cruising waters and some of the UK's rarest wildlife. The marina has a rich heritage and today is home to an enviable diversity of craft – from Thames Barges and fishing smacks to racing yachts and modern motor cruisers. The extensive shoreside facilities are also decidedly modern, but one thing hasn't changed over the years – the good old-fashioned Blackwater welcome

Marinestore is a thriving "bricks & mortar" and on-line mail order chandlery with 4 separate retail outlets, each of which contains stock and equipment suitable for the local requirements. The Maldon shop is geared towards the classic and traditional part of the market, supplying unusual but traditional items such as lanolin, red lead powder, bronze fittings and just about anything for the older craft. Modern equipment sits happily alongside all of the traditional gear. The Maldon yard also features some of the best shipwrights around and has berthing and cranage available.
The Burnham shop is situated in Burnham Yacht Harbour at Burnham on Crouch. This place has more of a racing flavour, and the stock reflects this. Titchmarsh Marina at Walton on the Naze hosts our largest and most prestigious shop, over 5000 sq ft of space is dedicated to chandlery. This site caters for cruising craft and larger motor boats. The West Mersea outlet leans towards dinghy and clothing supplies and has a large range of hard to find spares for racing boats.
