To say thank you to all our loyal moorers, we would like to offer you a free pre-season boat check...

We know the last few months have been tough as everyone has been separated from what they love the most; for some that will be friends and family and others it may be their narrowboat?

Whatever it maybe we would like to offer all of our moorers a free pre-season health check for their boat, this is to assist you in getting back to boating as soon as possible.

Aqueducts free pre-season boat check will include the following:


A visual inspected and emptying via bilge pump*
*(Subject to no contamination being present).

Stern Gland

Assessed for drips and wear of the gland packing.


We will run up your engine to get things lubricated internally and clear the damp.
The engine oil level will be checked along with both coolant level & mixture.


Each battery is disconnected and tested individually; our battery testing equipment uses the specification of your battery to review and score its health on a scale of 1 to 100.

At the end of the health check each boat will receive a report card, listing results for the checks undertaken; if we feel anything is required this will be listed for review or we will call you on the day should action be more urgent.

Does your boat need a little more than our free pre-season boat check?

As an engineer will already be attending to your boat, we can also offer the following additional services, some of which will be discounted;

Diesel bug testing

Bacterial culturing is used to test if diesel bug is in your fuel system; we can now grow diesel bug in a test tube with a sample your fuel should it be contaminated!

Standard engine service

£120.00 Approx* (1hr labour + parts) Normally £180.00 Approx
Reduced in price by one hour’s labour; our standard engine service includes fuel filter, engine oil and filter replacement along with more technical checks.
*Gearbox oil, non-standard instillations and traditional engine services can also be undertaken; for more info ask a member of the team.

Traditional stern gland packing

Traditional stern gland packing can be replaced whilst we are undertaking the free checks; if you think this need’s completing or if we advise you it looks due; you can simply add this to the visit.

Boat cleaning

We are also glad to confirm that our interior cleaners are back to work and available Monday – Saturday from next week; should you wish to have the interior of your boat cleaned before you visit for the first time after lockdown this can now be booked. Just so that you know… Our interior cleaners have changed their practices to ensure they can work in a Covid-Secure manner changing the cleaning products they use to those with virus fighting ingredients. The boat cleaning price has maintained its original standard cost of £36.00

COVID 19 Update – 12/05/2020

Dear Customers,

We have reviewed the government’s plan for the next phases of the UK’s emergence from the Covid-19 pandemic; at this time we will not be allowed to open to the general public but we will be able to provide access to our existing mooring & storage customers who have boats on site.

To enable this to happen safely and in a controlled manner some of the higher risk marina facilities will remain restricted and there will be strict social distancing measures in place to protect both our staff and customers.

With this in mind we have produced an “Access Guide” for the marina which you can find at the bottom of this page.

Our security barrier code has been updated and the barrier will be in operation to limit site access. Mooring & storage customers will need the new code to gain entry and will be contacted directly to provide them with both the Access Guide and the new Barrier Code. We do also ask that all mooring and storage customers contact us in advance of visiting the marina so we can monitor visitor levels.

As the nation is being encouraged to return to work, we will do so here Aqueduct Marina on a gradual basis to meet demand and manage the safety of our staff.

Most importantly we must ask you to refrain from engaging with our staff directly, all enquiries must be made by phone, online or e-mail and members of our team should not be approached in person.

As ever if you have any questions, please contact us by calling 01270 525 040 to speak in person or send an e-mail to and we will respond as quickly as possible.

Don’t forget…. “Stay Alert, Control The Virus, Save Lives”

All the best,

The Aqueduct Team
