Powerhouse Marine is based on the south bank of the River Tyne, with two slipways for access straight into the power zone.

The slipways are run and looked after by the Derwenthaugh Watersports Association.

A large car park is available to  Derwenthaugh Watersports Association members.

Day membership is £8 and available during Powerhouse Marine opening hours.

Full Membership is £110 which lasts from March to March and gets you your own key which will grant you access to the slipways at any time.

Third party insurance can be obtained from Towergate Mardon, RJP Marine or Basic Boat.

Don't forget, the slipways are tidal and not accesible for two to three hours either side of low water.
