In our short-film series, join us as we follow some of our amazing berth holders we have here at Milford Marina. Get inspired by their experiences and love for the Milford Haven Waterway, as they share their own remarkable stories with us. We filmed our series in the summer of 2019, and after a short break in line with government guidelines around Covid-19, we’re pleased to pick up where we left off following the release of our previous films as our customers enjoy getting back to boating. Milford Marina offers the prime location to explore the 200 mile picturesque Pembrokeshire coastline with everything you need right on your (boat’s) doorstep, including a wonderful selection of eateries, shops and services on site!
In our third film, we follow Jamie Goodridge and his family on board their own transformation project ‘Hamar’, a Eurobanker Trawler Yacht which has become their hub for adventuring around the Milford Haven Waterway. Having grown up on the coast of Pembrokeshire, Jamie and his parents spent their summers staying aboard their boat. Not straying from tradition, Jamie and Paula have eagerly given their kids that same liberating experience from their berth at Milford Marina, as they enjoy their holidays and leisure time fishing, water skiing, swimming and kayaking out on the waterway. Jamie, Paula and their triplet sons, Bailey, Noah and Troy, are delighted to be back out enjoying the water now, as is their well-dressed sea dog, Wilbur, who thinks he owns the boat!
Milford Marina is the perfect destination whether you’re an expert of the sea or someone who thinks that “port” is just a wine that goes well with cheese, offering 22 miles of sheltered navigable waters for all abilities, the surrounding area displays breath-taking scenery and a great deal of opportunities for all kinds of water-based activities!
Offering an easy and prompt lock system with 24/7 access to Milford Marina, you have the freedom to tour around some of Pembrokeshire’s best sailing spots just like Watwick Bay - one of the Jamie’s favourite places to visit with his family. Within 45 minutes of coastal steaming you’ll reach this gorgeous, secluded suntrap. Watwick Bay has a golden, sandy beach with perfect conditions for kayaking, swimming and stand up paddle boarding, giving you the perfect excuse to get your family in the water and off their phones!
If you’ve spent the last few months working from home, longing for the freedom to explore the Pembrokeshire Coast, a berth at Milford Marina gives you the freedom to enjoy a well-deserved break and a dose of vitamin sea whenever you fancy. Jamie and his family enjoy spending their time water skiing on the Haven and with a choice five designated areas all within reach of Milford Marina, it’s the ideal place to let your inner child run wild!
