Great feedback from our one day RYA Diesel Engine Course, held on 5th March and hosted by Steve Jones, instructor from Salterns Sea School, in how to prevent and solve diesel engine failure.

Berth Holder Sue Sieger said “It was excellent, he made it so interesting and his knowledge of all types of engines, suited all types of boat owners that were on the course, from launches, yachts & larger motor cruisers, he knew the good & bad points whether they were water cooled, air cooled, it didn’t matter he knew it all.

What I found particularly good was being able to see all the different engine & exhaust parts, that could cause problems, he made us take out & fit impellers, fit drive belts, bleed the fuel, in fact all the things that can cause a break down at sea.”

We’ve  been brimming with excitement when it was first revealed that Rick Stein was planning to open a waterfront restaurant in Sandbanks.  Jane Haas, Marketing Co-ordinator for Salterns Marina Ltd,  was one of the lucky few who had the privilege of being invited to one of the soft launches prior to the official opening and was delighted with the experience. Jane said “I know our marina customers, who appreciate good food will be thrilled and excited as I am.  This is coastal chic at its best!”

With views across the water you can enjoy a casual lunch with classic dishes such as crab salads and moules marinière, alongside seafood dishes including Dover sole meunière, turbot hollandaise and fruits de mer.

Salterns Marina continues its success retaining the 5 Gold Anchor Award


Multi-award winning Salterns Marina has once again been re-accredited with the ‘5 Gold Anchor’ award for quality assured berthing after a recent assessment by The Yacht Harbour Association (TYHA).  The Gold Anchor award scheme is one of the highest accolades any marina can achieve in recognising facilities, safety and quality of service.  Only a small number of marinas ever achieve this prestigious international award, which is globally recognised.

Nick Smith, Managing Director of Salterns Marina Ltd said “After a meticulous review process we are delighted that Salterns Marina has been awarded once again the 5 Gold Anchor status, which is arguably the hardest award any marina can achieve.  I am immensely proud of my team and it goes to show that customer focus and attention to detail pays off.  I would like to congratulate them for the excellent effort and commitment they have made in helping to retain this award.”

The Gold Anchor award scheme has been auditing marinas throughout the world for over 25 years and is well known as a credible measure of the marina quality. The process involves a comprehensive set of criteria which is checked and surveyed by an independant marina expert. In addition, a series of mystery shops and berth holders’ questionnaires are conducted. The marina must achieve a minimum overall score of 85% to gain the 5 Gold Anchor status.

Salterns Marina will once again be exhibiting at the Southampton Boat Show from 11th to 20th September, stand number E037 , overlooking the marina.  For more information please visit our stand, or contact Salterns Marina on 01202 709971,
