Salterns has an interesting and fascinating past. Dating back to the 1700’s to when the site was active in salt-making, hence the name ‘Salterns’, its history is also linked to pottery making. There has been a yacht club on the site since 1935 and during the war years from 1943-1948 the site was used as the Flying Boat Headquarters and was Britain’s only international airport with famous passengers including film stars, royalty and Sir Winston Churchill. Having purchased the business in 1969, the Smith family (of Matchbox Cars) continued to improve the site and by 1974 developed the marina as you see it today.
Awarded five ‘Gold Anchors’, the highest accolade any marina can achieve, this exclusive marina is positioned in the most stunning of settings, overlooking Brownsea Island and the Purbeck Hills beyond. For mariners it is simply the perfect location; ideal for pottering around Poole Harbour, Studland or Swanage Bay, or exploring further afield into the Solent, West Country or France. With exceptional on-site facilities and services including boatyard, chandlery, hotel, bar, restaurant, fuel, free car parking, boat sales and sea school you can see why Salterns is more than a marina!
