Set against the vibrant and lively backdrop of The Boardwalk’s kaleidoscope of bars, restaurants and unique shopping outlets sits Port Solent Marina; a modern and family friendly marina offering luxury facilities and the perfect start point from which to experience the delights of the Solent.
Easily accessible from the sea, Port Solent is a locked marina located in the sheltered waters of the northern reaches of historic Portsmouth Harbour. The marina is also conveniently reached by road and is just minutes away from the M27, the M3 and the A3 making for great connections along the South Coast, to London and The Midlands.
Yachting is also made easy at Port Solent with 24-hour easy access to the Solent’s waters with its fantastic cruising grounds that attract both sail and powerboat owners. From Port Solent, you can easily explore Chichester Harbour’s natural beauty as well as sample the pleasures of famous yacht havens on the Isle of Wight or further afield to Premier’s Swanwick Marina on the Hamble,
Beaulieu, Lymington or Poole. Back on dry land, Port Solent is a popular location for fine dining or a quick bite to eat with a variety of cafés and restaurants to tempt you – from English cuisine, to Italian comfort food, hot and spicy Mexican, to the mouth-watering tastes of the Orient.
After boating, there’s a chance to relax and enjoy The Boardwalk’s fascinating waterside experience; if you love to shop, you’ll love Above the Blue, Hampshire’s best contemporary art gallery. The marina is also great for stocking up on outdoor kit with Snow and Rock and Britain’s biggest chandlery, Marine Superstore onsite. There’s also a multiplex cinema and a David Lloyd Health and Fitness Club close by, but if you’d like to stretch your legs, 12th century Portchester Castle is a short stroll away.
Port Solent’s sheltered waters also make the marina an ideal place in which to carry out repairs or winter your yacht. Aside from a fully serviced boatyard that includes a 40-ton hoist, the marina offers a comprehensive suite of repair services, from electronic to full GRP repairs, rigging to engineering. Add unlimited storage ashore, 24-hour manned security, a handy fuel berth, dedicated berth holder car parks, a children’s play area and Port Solent makes for the perfect destination for a weekend escape or to permanently berth your yacht.
As one of the UK’s leading marinas, Port Solent offers extensive shoreside facilities, including first-class showers and toilets. You’ll also enjoy great customer service from an enthusiastic and professional team. It’s therefore not surprising that Port Solent Marina, which is owned and operated by Premier Marinas, has been awarded the Yacht Harbour Association’s highest accolade of ‘Five Gold Anchors’.
With 24-hour easy access to the Solent, luxury berth holder facilities and endless entertainment, Port Solent Marina is arguably the best marina on the south coast…
