    Cruise Moor Scheme

    Marinas join forces to launch new visitor mooring scheme

    Five independent family run marinas are joining forces in 2024 to offer inland waterway boaters the opportunity to enjoy a new discounted visitor mooring scheme – Cruise Moor.

    The Cruise Moor scheme which will be launched in February at Boatlife in Birmingham sees Aqueduct Marina, Droitwich Spa Marina, Dunchurch Pools Marina, Overwater Marina and White Mills Marina collaborate to provide moorers with the unique opportunity of staying on each of the marinas on a visitor mooring for up to two weeks with a fabulous 20% discount.

    It is hoped the new initiative will not only encourage more boaters to explore the UKs waterways network but enable them to enjoy the facilities and personal service offered by the ‘fabulous five’ independent marinas.

    Boaters can find out how to qualify for a Cruise Moor card from one of the participating marinas and then plan their cruising season in the knowledge that they can enjoy the facilities of another independent marina with a 20% reduction in visitor mooring fees.

    Spokesperson for Cruise Moor, Robert Parton of Aqueduct Marina said: “All of the five marinas involved in Cruise Moor share the same aspirations of encouraging boaters to get out and about and explore the miles and miles of the beautiful waterways network.  As family-run marinas we work incredibly hard to be the best in the business and go the extra mile to provide excellent customer service. It is a terrific scheme and a wonderful opportunity for us all to showcase our marinas to each other’s moorers, we are all looking forward to watch it develop over the coming months.”

    Picture it as the narrowboat equivalent of a gold-starred luxury resort—your gateway to an exceptional narrow boating experience.

    So, let us explain exactly what our 5 Gold Anchor status means and show you what makes our marina a shining beacon in the waterways.

    The 5 Gold Anchor accreditation is more than just a shiny emblem; it’s a mark of excellence in the marine world and we are proud to say we have held this accreditation for X years.

    We take pride in our commitment to the environment. The audit process ensures that our marina adheres to environmentally sustainable practices, minimizing our ecological footprint in the beautiful waterways we call home.

    Operational Management:

    Efficient operations are vital for a smooth cruising experience. The 5 Gold Anchor Standard evaluates our management practices, ensuring that everything, from safety protocols to emergency procedures, is the best that it can possibly be.

    Community Engagement:

    A marina is not just a collection of boats; it’s a community. We actively engage with our boating community to foster a sense of camaraderie and support, making your marina experience not only enjoyable but also enriching.

    Your Ticket to Premium Boating:

    Now that we’ve unravelled the criteria, you might wonder, “What’s in it for me?”. Here’s why our 5 Gold Anchor accreditation matters for you:

    Aqueduct Marina’s Boating Event hailed a success!

    Visitors, exhibitors and organisers agreed that despite the somewhat blustery conditions, this year’s Aqueduct Marina Boating Event was a great success. The aim was to provide an event that was a ‘boat show for boaters’, and as a result, around 500 visitors took the opportunity to visit the marina, speak to staff and visit 19 trade stands.

    In addition, over 200 people attended the evening’s entertainment, much of which was provided by Elvis tribute Paul Larcombe and singer Josh Whittall.

    Both exhibitors and marina staff commented on the levels of interest shown by visitors, the majority of whom were genuinely interested in discussing their boats and their boating experiences.

    Robert Parton, Aqueduct Marina’s MD, said, “I am very grateful to the exhibitors who supported us and had a stand at the show, some of whom stayed until late and enjoyed the lively Elvis night as well. Also, well done, Hannah (Aqueduct Marketing), who successfully managed to target the right people and get boaters and aspiring boaters here. I spent most of the day by our brokerage boats and had plenty of excellent conversations with existing and soon-to-be boat owners.”

    Kevin Peart, MD of Aegina added, ”It was good to meet you and your team, we enjoyed the day and had many interesting conversations about solving water supply and making safe drinking water for the canal boat community. We will be back next year”.

    Anyone interested in visiting or exhibiting at next year’s event should keep an eye on the Aqueduct Marina website and social media channels where the next Boating Event, expected to take place in July, will be publicised. Visit www.aqueductmarina.co.uk

    Exhibiting at Crick Boat Show 2023

    Following on from the success of the offer made at BoatLife, the Aqueduct Marina team in Cheshire are offering some real savings at this year’s Crick Boat Show to help you enjoy your narrowboat in 2023.

    Any narrowboat owner visiting the Aqueduct stand at the Crick Boat Show between the 26th and 29th of May, and holding a full-price admission ticket, should visit the Aqueduct stand V-BW to get their ticket stamped. This can then be exchanged for either a free week’s mooring, worth £154 or one free use of the slipway, worth £160; terms and conditions apply. Come and visit us for all your narrowboat needs, especially if you have any work that needs to be carried out on your boat.

    And if you are thinking of selling your boat, sign up today with Aqueduct’s brokerage for it to be displayed at Crick to give it the best chance of reaching a potential buyers eye.

    Both ticket options will enable boat owners to use Aqueduct Marina as a mid-cruise safe harbour in 2023, as it is within easy reach of the Llangollen, Macclesfield and Caldon canals.

    The Church Minshull marina’s significant savings are something everyone is looking for during these difficult times. So why not plan your boating year and cruising routes to make the most of the marina’s giveaways and join the many boat owners who already moor at Aqueduct and find the marina an ideal place to moor or store their boat, whatever the season.

    Happy Retirement Brian!
    Our engineer Brian has retired. A few weeks ago, we held a celebration for Brian to thank him for all of his help and hard work over the years.
    Brian has been part of the team for the last 4 years and before working here, was an engineer at ABC Leisure. He will be greatly missed.
    From all of the team at Aqueduct Marina, we wish Brian all the best with his well-deserved retirement!
    Moorers and Storers Spring Social

    On Saturday 18th March, we held our Moorers & Storers Spring Social Event.

    It was a well-attended event and was great to see our customers for a catch-up in a more relaxed setting.

    Thank you to everyone that attended, we will see you at the next one!

    Details are to be revealed soon!

    SBS BoatLife 2023 hailed a success!

    The SBS BoatLife 2023 exhibition at the NEC was hailed as a success by the Aqueduct Marina team, who described the event as “positive”.

    The Cheshire-based marina received a number of strong enquiries for moorings, together with interest from brokerage buyers, those considering selling their boat and owners interested in boat repairs. Much of this interest was generated by Aqueduct’s offer of a free weeks mooring or a slipway use.

    Robert Parton, Aqueduct’s MD, said, “I believe we had a decent few days because the show had grown from last year’s first year, the weather was better, so the trains ran and most importantly, the inland sector had a much greater presence, with a decent number of boats to view. All this created just enough footfall. I also think it is excellent for the inland sector to be in an exhibition such as this which combines both inland and coastal leisure boating.

    Robert echoed the views of many other exhibitors in saying, “The timing in February is excellent, with customers just starting to think about the summer ahead, and because the main season hasn’t started yet, marine business and their staff are able to get to the show.”

    The team are looking forward to a busy season and next year’s show which, it is hoped, will continue to go from strength to strength.
