Fuel Berth and Pump Out at Eastbourne Marina
Our fuel bay and gas
Located close to the Marina Reception, Sovereign Harbour Marina has a self-service fuel bay open from 0800-1900 daily. The easy-to-use, self-service fuelling pontoon offers marine diesel and unleaded petrol. Outside of these times, fuel may be dispensed at the Lock Master’s discretion and operation of the lock takes priority over fuel dispensing services. Please call on VHF Channel 17 for service before heading for the fuel berth in your boat.
How to self-serve fuel
To fuel up at Eastbourne Marina, please pull alongside the pump and remove your boat's fuel cap. When you remove the nozzle from the pump, a member of staff will remotely authorise the pump to begin dispensing fuel. When you have completed fuelling replace the pump and call into the Marina Reception to pay.
