Lee Valley Marina at Stanstead Abbotts in Hertfordshire provides all marina services.

The marina is situated in Lee Valley Regional Park a few miles north of the junction with the River Lee. The River Lee is connected to the national waterways system by the Hertford Union Canal and the River Thames giving over 2,500 miles of cruising waterways.

The marina offers moorings, chandlery, all boat yard services and a professional engineering and refit service. There's a crane on site to lift boats up to 70 feet in length and 18 ton in weight. Boat Safety Certificates and surveys can be facilitated on site. Boats can be refitted, welded, blacked and painted. All types of engine can be serviced or repaired. There are moorings for up to 200 boats and storage facilities on land to carry out boat repairs.

The chandlery on site stocks a large range of products particularly for canal boats and inland waterways cruisers. If you haven’t got a boat yet or wish to upgrade, the marina operates a boat brokerage service.
