Reviews for Fox's Marina and Boatyard
Handy for repairs, good atmosphere, 2013-08-25
Captain: , Vancouver (4195)

Located close to transport links, this marina has a large boatyard for repairs. The best part is the huge on-site chandlery which is undoubtedly the best in Eastern England. Clean, well laid out docks are regularly maintained.

Had a few issues with the boatyard and chandlery prices but boating in Britain is always at least double the price compared to elsewhere. Friendly staff.
