Fuel at Universal Marina
Universal Marina berth holders can find fuel facilities on the fuel pontoon at our sister marina, Swanwick, just upriver. The self-service fuel pontoon at Swanwick sells marine diesel and unleaded petrol. There are CCTV cameras overseeing the pumps and a help point intercom in case of queries.
The fuel pontoon is open every day between 08:00-18:00hrs in the summer and during daylight hours in the winter. For out-of-hours service, berth holders can contact the marina reception via the help point. Bottled gas is also available from the marina reception.
Berth holder fuel discount
Premier berth holders benefit from a fuel discount as part of the Premier Advantage. This discount is applied using a red fuel fob or fuel discount card, which can be acquired at the marina reception and will allow you to purchase your required fuel type at the price it costs us to buy and dispense it.
How to use the self-service fuel pontoon
Watch our helpful video guide or read more details below.
To buy fuel, enter a payment card at the pay point, select the amount of fuel and grade you require and wait for the transaction to be authorised. Then remove the nozzle from the pump and begin dispensing. There is a help point intercom and an emergency stop button on the pontoon.
To apply your berth holder discount, hold your red fuel fob or insert your fuel discount card just below the screen until it beeps. If the fob or card has been accepted, a message will appear in blue, 'Identification card accepted. Your identification card has been accepted'. If the message appears in orange, there’s a fault and you’ll need to try again.
