About the Marina


Lymington is often been criticised for being one huge boat park and the area around the Berthon Marina is particularly dense with boats. Lymington is right in the heart of the New Forest and the marina with all its fantastic facilities has a prime location right at the end of the Lymington High Street. In addition there's is a railway station across the river from the marina with fast links to London, the SW and the Midlands. Lymington is sadly loosing its identity as a Georgian market town as new property developments are replacing the old brown field sites. The long steady march up the Georgian High Street is still very pleasant and for the ladies there are some fine nautical fashion shops to be found.
Since Rom
an times there always been a boatyard of sorts on this site and today the Berthon Boat Company has built boats here under successive generations of the May family. Realistically most visitors only call into Berthon if the visitors pontoon berths at the Lymington Town Quay (which is just upstream from the marina and run by the Lymington Harbour Commissioners) happens to be full - which they usually are. From experience, you'll get a quieter nights sleep in Berthon anyway.
 

Marina Approaches


Generally all yachts aim for ‘Jack in the Basket’ a port hand beacon pile and is the first of the many beacon piles which mark the channel up the Lymington River. Apart from a couple of leading lights for night time pilotage the only hazards are the large and intimidating ferries. Despite appearances there’s plenty of room to pass even at LW, however keep as wide a berth as possible with plenty of steerage way to void being ‘drawn in’. About half way up the river is an ECM, Q(3)10s, in-between two large wave screens which project out from the shore line, and the passage up the river is a case of following the channel drawn by the line of moorings. The Berthon Lymington Marina can be found directly opposite the Wight Link ferry terminal.
