Hesford Marine

Hesford Marine was originally part of Agden Saltworks which was established around 1906. The saltworks under the then ownership of British Soda was closed down in 1962. It started life as Hesford Marine in 1963 under the ownership of Bernard Hesford.

The boatyard developed over the years and a slipway was introduced in the late 1960's. At that time the Hesford Marine building extended over the area of the slipway. Part of the buidling (which was in poor repair) was demolished and the slipway took it's place.

The Marina was sold following Bernard Hesford's retirement and was run for a number of years by Mr & Mrs Evans until being bought by Mobility Engineering (Cheshire) Ltd in July 2009. The Boatyard is now in the process of improvement with additional and improved services being planned for the future.

Hesford Marine provides various services to the boat user, including:

  • Diesel and Gas

  • Boat lifting facilities and hull blacking

  • Slipway

  • Pressure Washer Facility
