Established in 1992 by Richard Bates and David de Vere, Bates Wharf Marine Sales is well known as one of the leading boat brokers, and specialists in Sports Boat & Cruisers. In 2007, £1.7 million was invested into the largest boat showroom and chandlery on the river Thames. This complements our existing marina and workshop facilities. No longer do you have to endure the rain & cold in order to see the boat of your dreams. Adjacent to our main showroom we have a dedicated on land sales area and on water pontoon for our larger sports boats and cruisers, and our on-site chandlery and parts department.
