Welcome to the Oundle Marina Village website and to the beautiful River Nene.

The Marina was created nearly 60 years ago by creating a cut-through from the River Nene and flooding the local gravel pits, and has been managed by the same family for most of that time – Mark Nye is the current manager.

This has now grown into a marina with 191 non-residential moorings plus dedicated visitor moorings that can be booked in advance. The whole site covers an area of about 22 acres with over half of that being the marina which means plenty of space for the boats, no overcrowding here!

As well as the moorings there is also a well-stocked Chandlery, a gantry that can launch boats up to 62ft long, slipway for launching day boats, diesel & petrol, toilets & laundrette and workshops where we can carry out any boat repairs, boat antifouling/blacking and engine servicing.


Please check EA website for any works that are being done along the river. Another great source of info is the Friends of the River Nene website, also a nice way of meeting fellow boaters – membership available through Oundle Chandlery. 


The Chandlery is now open 10.00am – 5.00pm everyday except Wednesdays.

4th January 2022. Happy New Year to all our customers. The Chandlery will reopen at 10.00am on Thursday 6th January 2022 & we’re looking forward to another busy year.

Update to rule changes December 2021

We will continue to wear a mask indoors to protect our customers and would politely ask that our customers do the same while the virus remains prevalent. Hand sanitizer will still be available and, again, we would ask that customers sanitize their hands before entering the shop. Thanks to everyone for their support during these testing times. 


The Environment Agency issues SSA to inform river users when river levels are increasing and when locks are being prepared to discharge flood water. Notice boards, flags and lights are displayed prominently on river banks to inform boaters of the status of the river. There is an EA 24 hour SSA hotline 0345 988 1188 or 0845 988 1188, choose option 1 then dial 032112 for the River Nene. Alternatively you can be added to the free SSA messaging system, find details on the EA website.


 We  have Calor Gas, Homefire Ovals (£16.00/20kg), Logs (£6.00) and Kindling (£6.00)  – you can park right next to the loading area or we can load you up on the quayside here. Our red diesel is only 95p per litre for heating and we stock Calor Gas.


Nene Valley Boats are now an approved RYA training centre based here at Oundle Marina. You can find out more information by going to , where you’ll find details about either RYA Helmsmans or Crew courses which can be done on the centres boat or your own boat – gift vouchers are also available.
