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

UPDATE 25/03/2020

Dear customers,

Following a meeting yesterday afternoon (which was held over the web), the Aqueduct Marina Team will be implementing further measures to support the Governments crisis management.

These measures are to afford everyone additional protection whilst maintaining services and business activity key to the marina’s continuity.

As of today, this means that…

  • The marina, storage yard and caravan park are nowclosed to all visitors, people currently residing onboard their boat can stay, however we would encourage those who can make other arrangements to do so. No further customers or the general public will now be allowed to gain access.
  • The code to the security barrier will be changed, this is to enable the management of access to the site. If you have not been issued the barrier code by the Aqueduct Team, then you cannot visit the site. The new barrier code we will then issue to all customer once the Government have notified us that free movement has been allowed again.
  • Those currently onboard will have access to; pump-out and diesel by special arrangement only. You must call the marina on 01270 525 040 and book access to the diesel and pump-out jetty on a self service basis.
  • The chandlery is closed to everyone except marina staff; those currently onboard at the marina may receive essential items by delivery. Special arrangements can be made via 01270 525 040 or
  • The marina toilets, showers & laundry facilities are now closed until further notice; this is both to close the currently shared common areas where the virus could be passed on and also as staffing for cleaning services are no longer available.
  • Workshops are closed to all visitors but we will be working away in the background, all those residing onboard are required to distance themselves from all marina staff. We know that you may not be able to use your boat at this time but we can assist you in keeping it maintained, if you have any enquiries regarding engineering services, you must call 01270 525 040 to speak with our team or e-mail

Please follow these rules along with the Governments published advice, they are in place for everyone’s benefit and the safety of those who are most vulnerable.

If you have any questions whatsoever, please feel free to contact our office via 01270 525 040 and speak with a member of the Aqueduct Team or e-mail and a member of our team will respond to you.

As ever, thank you for your assistance and support…

All the best,

The Aqueduct Team
