Dover Marina Photo: Port of Dover –

The new Marina, now taking pride of place on Dover’s revitalised waterfront, will become home to over 160 yachts and small leisure boats after opening this month.

Around 50 berth holders are already in the new site permanently, with more continuing to move over throughout the first half of 2023.

With the sun beaming down, the White Cliffs and Dover Castle as a backdrop, and some of the most prestigious cruise ships sitting alongside, the Marina becomes a star of Dover’s revived waterfront. Surrounded by the Marina Curve and only a short walk from Dover Priory station, it provides the perfect opportunity for visitors and berth holders to celebrate local culture and history through new leisure experiences and events.

Last year’s events on the Marina Curve already proved extremely popular, and with the Marina now open, the waterfront is expected to provide fantastic entertainment and leisure opportunities this spring/summer season.

Chris Windsor, Marina Manager said: “The official opening marks a milestone for the Marina and Port – I’m delighted that our berth holders have started to settle in their new, permanent base, and can make the most of the brilliant opportunities now available to them.

We take pride in being a seamless and sustainable port, and I have no doubt that the Marina and my team, will continue to provide berth holders with an exceptional experience and service.”

The highlight facilities for berth holders include a dedicated fueling station on its own berth, a hard standing and level boatyard with large capacity, and a new Marina office. All features of the new Marina and waterfront have been built around a sustainable mixed-use scheme.

The Dover Marina showcase took place on 20th May, with tours, displays and demonstrations, plus boat sales, live music and street food.

A new year-round program of events surrounding the Marina Curve has recently been announced, with more information here.
