About west mersea marine

West Mersea Marine is a family run boatyard on Mersea Island – a beautiful, tranquil setting on the River Blackwater on the East Coast of England.

We provide mooring rental, boat storage, boat handling and general boat and yard work…we will also soon be offering a boat sales service.

Our secure yard is fully equipped with CCTV, toilets, shower facilities, electric meters, water supply and barrier protected vehicular access allowing for customer parking where available.

We provide over 200 moorings throughout Mersea Fleet, Mersea Quarters, Thorn Fleet, Salcott Channel and Ray Channel – Accommodating a wide variety of vessels from 15ft ribs to 40ft yachts. We have a selection of mooring options including moorings on piles, half tide edge moorings, deep water swinging moorings, deep water pontoon moorings and drive on rib dock moorings.

We have proudly served local yachtsmen and women for decades. West Mersea is a sailing haven. Ray Island lies adjacent to the north of Mersea whilst Packing Shed Island and Cobmarsh Island lie southwest. To the Eastern end of Mersea Island lies a large bird sanctuary where you can see a wide selection of wading and migratory birds. It’s a short journey from Mersea Island to the river Colne, Brightlingsea and the Walton Backwaters, the Orwell and the Stour. Within the Blackwater lies Osea Island, Bradwell on Sea, Maylandsea & Maldon. Further south is Burnham and the Thames Estuary.

Launch services are run by West Mersea Yacht Club and Stacey Belbin of Lady Grace from the hammerhead pontoon, Coast Road. (Yacht club launch is for WMYC members and visitors only).

There is an abundance of places to eat, drink and visit on Mersea including a fantastic selection of restaurants, cafes, takeaways, shops, supermarkets, delicatessens, a vineyard, a brewery, a museum, a country park and much more. Please see the useful links section for more details.
