Welcome to the Nottage Maritime Institute

The Nottage Maritime Institute is a Registered Charity, established in 1896, specialising in teaching not only RYA Shorebased Courses but several of our own unique courses mostly with a nautical flavour.

The Nottage is a local maritime museum located on Wivenhoe Quay, with a fine collection of paintings, photographs and models all with local connections. We open to the public on Sunday afternoons from May - September 2.00am - 5.00pm or by appointment during the week, when special exhibitions are also arranged.

The Nottage is home to The Friends of the Nottage, a group of supporters who may use the Nottage facilities and attend six lectures on a variety of subjects during the winter months for a modest subscription.

We are also home to the Wivenhoe Film Club who meet during the winter months showing a wide range of films. There is a stair lift at the rear of the building.
