Update - 15th December 2020
Dear Berth Holders,
In the context of the current lockdown introduced by the government 15/12/2020, we are forced to close the port office to visitors.
Of course we are available by phone and email as usual Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 5pm.
The harbour masters will be present at the marina every day to check and supervise the boats and pontoons.
The fuel station and refilling of drinking water is only possible by appointment. Please call the harbour master on 0162 68 22 49 for this.
Hold on, stay healthy and see you soon!
Renate Ilmer, Manager
Update - 14 October 2020
Dear berth holder,
Last night, the cabinet announced new corona measures. They start at 10 p.m. tonight.
A partial lockdown to reduce the number of infections. In particular, the number of contact moments and travel movements must be limited in the hope of preventing a complete lockdown in 2 weeks.
Our suggestion to you is therefore, try to get your boat out of the water in time, so that you do not have to worry about your boat in the event of more stringent measures.
We also offer you the option of converting your current seasonal contract into an annual contract. Not at the winter rate, but you only pay the difference between a season and an annual contract.
In this way we hope to think along with you and we can also keep a close eye on your boat during the winter months. If you want to convert your contract, please contact our harbor masters on tel. 0162- 68 22 49 or via firstname.lastname@example.org
We had to adjust our staffing to limit the contact moments. We count on your understanding if our service and services take a little longer than you are used to from us.
Hold on, stay healthy and see you soon!
Kind regards, Renate Ilmer, Manager

Introducing measures to ease lockdown restrictions at The Marina
Visitors Welcome Again
From Saturday 2 May, visitors are welcome again at the Marina! Staying overnight is only allowed if you have your own sanitary facilities on board. Common sanitary areas remain closed!
Due to the additional security measures we have in place, our service may be delayed a little and you may have to wait longer than you are used to from us. We count on your understanding and thank you in advance.
Marina office is now open in a limited capacity
Our Marina Office will open again in a limited capacity from this Saturday 2 May. To help with social distancing measures, we ask for only one visitor to enter the office at a time. Please wait until the traffic light at the bottom of the stairs turns green. While waiting, we ask you to keep 1.5m away from others. Cash payments are not possible at the moment, so you can only pay with PIN!
Of course we ask you to stay at home if you have flu or cold symptoms.
We are open from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm, 7 days a week.
Gas station is now open, please note our new safety measures
From Saturday 2 May, you can use our renewed petrol station again. You are requested to refuel yourself and to pay with PIN. Only two boats are allowed to refuel at the same time to give everyone necessary space. Please wait in your boat until you can refuel. Again, we do not accept cash payments, so you can only pay with PIN.
For this season, we now have Euro 98 (E5) at the pump instead of Euro 95 (E10), this to ensure that the older engines also run well on our fuel.
Gloves are of course available and ready for you!
The gas station is open from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm, 7 days a week.
SPAR-Enjoy will open again, Friday 8 May
