Sanitary facilities

We have new luxury sanitary facilities with showers (token costs € 1.00*), a toilet, washing machine & dryer, and a changing table for infants. The sanitary facilities are available from the Easter holidays until October 15th 2014.

During the winter, you can make use of the sanitary facilities at the “Kapellebrug” (located between Dock 1 and 2). Showers and toilets are available there (shower token costs € 1.00*).

* Shower tokens can be bought at our office located next to the lock.

Electricity and water supply:

We have recently renewed our electricity meters and sockets on the pontoons. In order to make use of this service, you need to purchase electricity tokens from our office next to the lock.
Price for electricity: € 1.00/Kw (220V – 16A – EC plug)

Waste bins:

There are containers available to deposit your household waste (a code* is required in order to get access to the bins).

If you have chemical waste (oil, detergent, etc.), please separate this from your household waste and deposit it in the chemical waste container (a code* is required to access this container).

*Code can be obtained from the harbourmaster on registering your boat at the marina.

Bicycle storage:

Covered and locked bicycle storage is available for our customers (a door security code* obtained from the harbourmaster is required to gain access).

Waiting Pontoon:

The waiting pontoon is situated in front of the entrance to the Mercator lock (on the outside of the pontoon which is situated parallel to the Churchill dock). Owing to the tidal nature of the harbour, the pontoon may be used as a temporary berth while waiting for the next lock opening, or overnight after 7pm when the lock will remain closed until the next morning.

Perfect location right in the center of Ostend:

The Mercator Marina is right in the center of the city, next to the biggest shopping street in Ostend, the “Kapellestraat”, and 50m from a large supermarket conveniently situated by the harbour (50m).
