South Pennine Boat Club

About South Pennine Boat Club

South Pennine Boat Club exists to provide members with all the facilities required to enjoy canal boating.

The present day site offers non-residential moorings for around fifty boats with electric posts, a covered dry-dock with associated equipment, jet-wash, mig-welder, workshop area etc., a sanitary station with elsan disposal and pump-out, diesel and diesel polishing and a whole range of small hand tools.

The jewel in the crown is the magnificent Club-house, which offers space for meetings and socials, with the occasional bar. We organise a full programme of varied social events from September to April each year.

Nearly all work on site is done by the members which helps keep fees low. In order to keep fees low, all members should be willing to participate in the upkeep of the Club and its premises. Members who contribute are given priority for moorings and dry dock bookings in particular. 

Whilst we welcome new members, it should be borne in mind that, anyone considering applying should be willing to contribute. Anyone who is unable to contribute may find a private marina more suited to their needs.
