Moorings at Sawley Waterside & Marina

Your village on the water

Sawley is the UK’s biggest in­land marina. It’s got 23 acres of water space and more than 600 berths – so it’s basically its own village.

It’s an easy spot to commute from – you’re only a short drive from Nottingham, Leicester and Derby, and there’s great road links to East Midlands airport, Long Eaton train station and the M1. But it’s so quiet around Sawley that you’ll think you’re in the middle of nowhere.

There’s loads to explore on the water. From Sawley, you can get to the Trent & Mersey canal, the River Trent, the River Soar and the Erewash Canal – so you’ve got some great cruising options nearby.

Sawley Marina Improvements

A safe, secure and serviced marina

You have the peace of mind of knowing that you are moored in a safe and secure marina with a wide range of facilities onsite, a welcoming community and a knowledgeable crew to help you navigate every step of your boating journey.

We can accommodate the majority of craft up to 21.34m. If your beam is greater than 3.66m and air draft is greater than 3.05, we advise you to speak with a member of our Waterside Crew to help you further.
