South Island Marina is owned and run by Michael Pinnock and was developed by Michaels father in the early 1990’s from a derelict and overgrown site into a fully functioning marina.

Initially his fathers main reason for developing the moorings was for somewhere to store the family’s own narrow boat and those of friends, but the need for safe and secure moorings in the area developed the site into a professionally run marina operation.

Since his father’s retirement in 2007 Michael has continued to run the marina operation to the same standards providing safe and secure moorings with marina services. Additionally, many other boatyard services have now been introduced to the marina including historic narrowboat restoration and traditional engine installation.
