Chatham Maritime Watersports Centre at Basin 2

Chatham Maritime Trust is excited to announce that they will be taking operational control of Chatham Maritime Watersports Centre.  We will over the coming weeks be opening our new Pay and Play boat hire scheme, initially to the Chatham Maritime family (residents, students and estate business employees).  Before expanding this scheme to the wider Medway community delivering pay and play boat hire to adults and supervised children.  

During this initial stage we will be working with the relevant licensing and national governing bodies to achieve a fully accredited Watersports Centre that will allow us to deliver a wide range of watersport activities and training to both the Chatham Maritime family and the wider community.  

We look forward to receiving your support by way of active participation. 

The Watersports Centre will be open Monday 24th, Wednesday 26th and Saturday 29th June.  

For further information or booking details please contact our Watersports Manager, Matt Small.   We would like to encourage you to follow our Watersports Centre Social Media outlets for details and timings of our products and services as they come online: 




We look forward to welcoming you afloat soon!

Chatham Maritime Watersports Centre

Chatham Maritime Trust, Leisure opportunities

Chatham Maritime Trust submitted a planning application to Medway Council for two new single storey buildings, one of which is a proposed water sports activity centre on the south side of Basin 2.  This will provide a classroom and changing rooms for the water based activities in Basin 2 .  Medway Council approved this application.

The proposal will not reduce the overall number of designated car parking spaces in the area, some new car parking spaces will be provided to replace those lost.  Further spaces and a drop off zone will be provided for the water activity centre.

Residents will be reassured to know that none of the costs of the proposed new buildings are coming out of their rentcharge.
