Customer Info

The BWML customer service promise to customers

BWML want to ensure that all our customers—whether existing or potential—can be clear on the expected standards of service we seek to deliver, consistently across all our marina sites.

You will see our customer commitments clearly outlined within this section, if you have any questions or would like to comment please get in touch.

We continue to invest in the training and development of our staff to attain industry certification and additionally we adhere to and deliver the standards and best practise outlined by our parent company – Canal and River Trust.  Where we don’t meet or deliver these standards right first time we want to hear from you (see Registering a complaint) — we will acknowledge your comments and follow up thoroughly and get back to you within 15 working days.

We have recently signed up to the Gold Anchor scheme, an industry recognised accreditation that is independently administered by The Yacht Harbour Association (TYHA) — details here. Less than 50% of UK marinas are accredited and independently monitored by this scheme.  We have 17 marinas that are accredited and whilst not all receive 5 anchors (based on a combination of factors),  we currently range from 3-5 Gold Anchors,  we are confident that having this independent accreditation, backed up by mystery TYHA visits gives us a good understanding of how our marinas measure up in the industry.

We hope that this section gives you all the information that you will need regarding BWML’s service and standards, but if there’s anything not clear please do not hesitate to contact your local Marina Manager directly or contact us.

Mooring Terms and Conditions

We want you to enjoy and relax during your time with us, not burdened by rules and regulations. However it is important that it is clear to everyone what is and isn’t permitted on site to avoid any confusion or conflict. It is also vital that you, as the customer, understand your rights and responsibilities and, at the same time, BWML’s rights and responsibilities as the marina operator. From applying for a mooring to selling your boat and much more, these terms and conditions and accompanying forms should tell you everything you need to know. Take the time to read them and understand them. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.

BWML Marinas are generally classified as Inland with the exception of Hull, Glasson and Limehouse which are classified as Coastal Marinas.

Gold Anchor Scheme

Quality Assured Berthing

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. Any rated marina will have been subject to a serious of rigorous tests.

BWML have recently renewed their membership of the Gold Anchor scheme; less than 50% of all UK marinas subscribe to it, but following a review by new BWML Managing Director, Jeff Whyatt, we decided that having an independent scheme to audit our marinas was an important part of our ongoing review of customer facilities and standards of customer service.
