About Sirius Marine Services on the River Severn
Providing maintenance repairs & servicing for boats, barges, narrowboats, yachts and more...
Situated in Worcestershire, in the West Midlands close to major motorway links, Sirius Marine (formerly Sirius Yachts), have built an array of different craft over the last two decades. From the highly acclaimed Sirius Offshore 38 & 42, many wide & narrowbeam canal boats to dutch barges in association with brands such as Euroships NL, Branson boat design and others.
In 1998 the 60 ton & 88ft long hull for the 11 cabin Edward Elgar was started with her being launched the following year. This awesome hull went on to become a hotel and still operates on the Severn up to Stourport from Gloucester offering cruise package holidays.
An avid boater for many years, the owner of Sirius Marine Services, Gill Harman, has many years of experience in the industry and is Treasurer at the near by Stourport Yacht Club. She seized the opportunity to keep Sirius ‘afloat’ by purchasing the boat yard and it’s assets.
Quality & Craftmanship
The quality & craftmanship came with it; the same brilliant skills at the helm. The steelwork is of the finest quality using only certified steel and the wood trim is hand crafted from locally sourced trees; the trunks delivered to the boat yard.
All the boats built are compliant to British Marine Federation rules and the Recreational Craft Directive. They don’t get any better!
With a long quay side directly onto the River Severn at Stourport on Severn, there is easy access for narrow beam boats onto the central region canal system via either Stourport or Worcester. A new junction at Droitwich Spa opened in May 2011.
Wide beam canal boats are able to travel downstream via Worcester and Gloucester onto the Sharpness Canal where they can also access the Severn Estuary and the Bristol Channel.
The geographical position and long standing expertise in building bespoke craft of many designs and sizes should encourage you to make Sirius Marine Services your final port of call when choosing your dream boat.
