Other craning lifts available include engine lifts or anything heavy that needs to be lifted on or off a boat.
  • Surveys - out of the water surveys by independent professional marine surveyors can be carried out at the marina. Unlike a wet dock all areas of the boat are accessible as the boats are craned on to a trailer allowing the whole base plate to be examined. A list of local surveyors is available for customers to choose from. Lee Valley Marina, Stanstead Abbotts doesn’t recommend any particular surveyor and no surveyor works in conjunction with the marina.
  • Boat Safety Certificate – the marina can arrange for an independent examiner to undertake the inspection and certify your boat. Any remedial work that’s required can be carried out by our marina engineers.

  • Long term - the site boasts 200 boat berths available at the Stanstead Abbotts site as well as mooring opportunities at its two satellite mooring sites at Rye House and Broxbourne.
