Further to the latest up-date from the Broads Authority issued on 1st July 2020, we would like to issue the following information to all berth holders at Acle Marina.

From 4 July boat owners and hirers will be permitted to stay overnight on vessels. This is as long as Government safety guidance on social-distancing, increased hygiene measures and local instructions provided by the Broads Authority are followed.

This includes privately owned craft, and also ‘self-contained’ holidays on hired vessels. The guidance from the Government continues to encourage individuals to stay two metres apart from others, however where it is not possible to stay two metres apart, guidance will allow people to keep a social distance of ‘one metre plus’ (this means staying one metre apart, plus mitigations which reduce the risk of transmission).

You should still only meet up and stay overnight away from your home with your own household or support bubble, or with members of one other household.

– Toilet & shower facilities will remain closed until further notice as per Government guidelines. Waste disposal is available for berth holders use for household rubbish only – please dispose of all other waste responsibly off site.  The slipway remains closed other than for use by the emergency services.

Social Distancing – Social distancing guidance as issued by the government is to be followed at all times. Only members from your own household are permitted on-site – no friends, neighbours, other guests or members of your family outside or your household. Whilst on the Marina please restrict your movements to an area directly adjacent to your own boat only.

Hygiene – Please avoid touching anything not associated with your own vessel wherever possible. Taps and service towers are to be sanitised using your own suitable products after each use to prevent virus transmission. Only your own water hose and other equipment should be used.

Contractors – Contractors already registered with the office are permitted to attend your boat as required, within the stated opening times and provided that social distancing rules are adhered to.

Marine Tech Services – Quayside services – diesel/water/pump-outs at our South Walsham site will remain closed.

Office – The Marine Tech office at South Walsham remains open at reduced capacity to answer your queries and offer advice, however all enquiries should be made by phone or email.
