Wyvern Marine is located next to P.J. Barber Boatbuilder Limited and offers safe, secure moorings with easy access to the extensive Midland Canal Networks. It is situated on the Erewash Canal within easy reach of the River Trent, River Soar and the Trent & Mersey Canal.

Historically, Wyvern Marine started life as a transhipment yard dating back to 1870. The surrounding buildings still retain their charm and character and provide a quiet haven with around 60 moorings.

Here at Wyvern Marine we can accomodate most river and canal vessels up to 55ft, with the moorings situated adjacent to a working boatyard which is linked to the marina. DIY facilities are available at preferential rates to moorers including slipway, ideal for blacking and general maintenance. Any works including engine repairs can be undertaken by the boatyard and quoted for upon request.
