We're looking for someone to join our enthusiastic and professional team in North Fambridge, where we specialise in the berthing, lifting and storage of vessels of all types at our 220 berth marina in Essex.

We take pride in our marina, ensuring it provides all the facilities for boat owners and the local market, as well as protecting the area for generations to come. In recent years, we’ve installed environmental washdown, partnered with a local business to ensure we have zero waste to landfill, and we’ve also rented out some space to an Apple TV film!
