Faversham, given its access to the sea via The Swale and its history as a major port, is an ideal place for the leisure boater, be it by sail or motor.
Faversham town itself lies at the head of the navigable Faversham Creek, with boat yards and permanent and visitor moorings available for yachts, motor cruisers and barges.
About a mile further west, again off the Swale, is Oare Creek, navigable by craft upto about 30ft, again with boat yards with permanent and visitor moorings.
There is also Conyer Creek, about 3 miles west of Faversham, navigable by craft upto about 30ft, again with boat yards with permanent and visitor moorings
Harty Ferry, at the west end of the Swale, overs a convenient stop over for yachts and motor cruisers. There is also a slip from which small boats can be launched from a trailer.
