About Us

Maiden Marine was established 25 years ago in the Spring of 1997 on the shores of Lake Windermere, right in the heart of the beautiful Lake District. Our Company was formed with the intention of providing a complete service to all Yacht owners.

Thus far Maiden has succeeded beyond our wildest expectations and in 2004, we moved into fabulous new premises at Ferry Nab, beside the Bowness Car Ferry. Which provide the facilities to service the large customer base we have now established. We have Lake front access and a cranage area to work on New and Used Craft, in addition to Jetty Berths for our customers and a huge Chandlery Shop stocking a full range of Sailing Clothing, Spares, Outboards, Dinghies & Marine Equipment.

We are Main Dealers for Beneteau in the North of England. This hugely successful product has provided us with a Yacht Dealership second to none. Over the years there have been over 300 new Beneteau arriving in the Lakes, with additional larger models going to various coastal locations in Europe & further afield. We have dealt with everything from the super fun Beneteau Antares 6 through to the luxurious Beneteau Oceanis 62 and all the sizes in between, from both the Sail and Power Boat ranges.

We are also Main Dealers for the super Maxima range of River and Lake Launches. These Dutch built boats offer a fun and stylish way to get on the water, the boats are predominantly powered by Honda Outboards. They are tailorable and have options from the smaller 4.85m boat to the luxurious 7.5m model.

In addition to the New Boat Sales, we also have a very active second-hand Brokerage Service. Having listed well over 1400 boats since we started, we have seen a huge variety of craft through the system. We are members of the Boats Group which includes YachtWorld.com and Boats.com (The world’s largest database of brokerage boats) and our own website is linked to their huge internet search engines, which help us to reach potential buyers and sellers.

We also operate a comprehensive Yard Service from our base in the Windermere Marina Village which works closely with our Ferry Nab cranage and workshop facilities to provide – Launching, Rigging, Commissioning, GRP Repairs & Maintenance, Antifouling, Engineering Services, Spray Painting & Winter Storage.

We became agents for North Sails in September 2003 and although we are not building any sails here on site, we do provide service, repairs and valeting on all sails and can undertake all types of canvas, canopy, cover & upholstery work. In addition to the canopies and covers we make in house, we are supported by NV Equipment in France, they make all the cover work for the Beneteau/Jeanneau ranges.

We have always striven to provide a ONE STOP SHOP for all your boating requirements. In addition to being agents for all the major marine suppliers, we are introducers for several of the industry leading insurance companies and for CGI Marine Finance. We can even arrange Beneteau Yacht Charter or Sailing tuition to RYA standards here on the Lake.
