We are specialists in supporting seafarers in their retirement and provide a range of housing options for rent in Merseyside.

The Mariners' Park estate comprises 112 apartments, bungalows and houses available for rent by retired seafarers and their dependants. It is a unique place to live, where former seafarers can share memories and camaraderie in their retirement years with others who have experienced life at sea.

There is a range of properties available, both one and two bedroomed, meaning that all residents are able to find the most suitable for their needs and truly make their house a home.

Residents can access a full range of services including regular social events, a home care service to help with shopping, cleaning and other needs; and have a personalised Care Plan to ensure that support is tailor-made to individual needs.

All accommodation comes fitted with a community alarm system, and emergency cover is available 24 hours a day. Gardeners, maintenance and care services are all provided for residents and specialist external contractors are employed by the Nautilus Welfare Fund to ensure that the highest standards are maintained.

The homes are situated in 16 acres of immaculately kept grounds with views of the River Mersey and the iconic Liverpool waterfront. Mariners' Park residents are also welcome to use the facilities in the Trinity House Hub, which opened in 2014 and provides additional social areas and essential services such as a laundry, hairdressers and a gym. The Centenary Wing also includes a games room as well as independent living accommodation.

The individual care plans, wide range of facilities and variety of housing options ensure that Mariners' Park provides retired seafarers and their dependants with a home for life.

If you are, or someone you know is, a retired seafarer who would like to live among other 'sea salts' then please contact us to arrange a visit.
