FREE BOAT CHECK FOR MOORERS

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:


Bilges


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.

Engine


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.

Batteries


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;

For the second year running Church Minshull Aqueduct Marina are delighted to announce it has won the UK Inland Marina of the Year 2018 as awarded by The Yacht Harbour Association at London Boat Show.

 

For the second year running Church Minshull Aqueduct Marina are delighted to announce it has won the UK Inland Marina of the Year 2018 as awarded by The Yacht Harbour Association at London Boat Show.

Aqueduct Marina is a one stop solution for canal boaters based in the heart of the Cheshire canal network on the Shropshire Union Canal.

Exhibiting for the first time with their own stand at the London Boat Show, Aqueduct Marina was introducing the Cheshire canal network to London and an international audience.

The Inland Marina of the Year award is voted for by marina berth holders and sponsored by Marine Insurers, NMU, the award recognises the best of over 160 Gold Anchor accredited marinas from across the globe.

Robert Parton, Managing Director at Aqueduct Marina commenting on the award said:

‘We are delighted to have won the Inland Marina of Year award 2018. In an increasingly competitive market where customers have plenty of choice of marinas and moorings around the inland network. It is particularly rewarding to win as a result of boat owners’ votes. Our thanks go to all those who voted for Aqueduct Marina, The Yacht Harbour Association for organising and to NMU for sponsoring’.

Simon Haigh, Chairman of The Yacht Harbour Association, gave his praise to the Marina: “Many congratulations to Aqueduct in the NMU Marina of the Year Awards 2018. These awards have built huge momentum since they were introduced and really mean something because it is marina customers who are voting for their marinas, recognising the excellence of facilities provided and the level of service which they receive.

“Aqueduct have been endorsed by their customers in the best possible way, to become Marina of the Year in their respective categories, which must be a hugely motivating and satisfying achievement. I would like to commend everyone involved and pass on our best wishes for the 2018 boating season.”

Joe McCarthy, Marine Trade Underwriting Manager at awards sponsor NMU commented: “To be recognised by their berth holders for consistently delivering a first-class service is testament to the marina and their staff.”

To commemorate the achievement, Aqueduct directors, Robert Parton, Andrea Parton, Jennifer Parton, Stuart Martin and Phil Langley were presented with an etched glass trophy and framed certificate by NMU.
