Finding Us - (the really difficult bit!)


Pennine Marine, Unit 8 Jaycee Business Park, Snaygill Industrial Estate, Keighley Road, Skipton, North Yorkshire, UK BD23 2UR

SATNAV - Skipton, North Yorkshire, BD23 2UR

We must admit that Pennine Marine is in the least likely geographical location for one of the UK’s a specialist rib, outboard engine and powerboat centre.

Pennine Marine is bases in the industrial/business park just to the south of the historic market town of Skipton. This town is the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales National Park, which we can see from our windows. Please note we are not even on the lovely Leeds and Liverpool canal.

Our central location “Up North” allows us to service and support boaters across all of northern England, including the counties of Yorkshire, Lancashire, Cumbria, Humberside, Durham and Cheshire, as well as the Lake District and Lake Windermere.

We have excellent road access to and from Northern England. This is simply because numerous A roads all converge on Skipton to pass through the “Aire Gap” (the major crossing point through the Pennines). The major cities of York, Leeds, Harrogate, Bradford, Preston are within an hour. Manchester and Liverpool are approximately one and a half hours away.  The western Lakes District and Windermere is only approximately one and a quarter hour’s drive away.

The main A65 linking the Lake District to Yorkshire (the major trans-Pennine route) passes just one mile to the north of us. Driving to us from anywhere in Lancashire and all of the rest of the North-West is easy, as we are just 15 minutes off the end of the M65.

When visiting Pennine Marine, we recommend you ignore your sat-nav, which will always take you through the historic Skipton town centre. Please approach us from the South. Rest assured that this is the only time we will recommend the South to anybody !!

The best way to approach us is from the south off the A629 Skipton western bypass. Please come off the bypass on the A629 at the “Skipton South” roundabout, which is sign-posted as heading towards the town centre. Then go straight over the Bay Horse roundabout. Just after the Rendezvous Hotel, please turn left at the small mini roundabout, heading downhill onto the Snaygill industrial estate.

Ahead of you is the Norvap factory. When you reach the Norvap factory at the bottom of the hill, please turn right and drive straight along the road, passing JACS on your left. Pennine Marine is 500 yards along the road, easily spotted as the big building with flagpoles. Ample parking is available on our private forecourt.

If you do get lost, ask any local for directions to JACS.
