The Hayling Yacht Company is really a working yard with residential berthing. Its a family owned business that was established in 1935 and any mention of 'Osmosis' then this yard is famed throughout the UK as the place to come through their specialist treatment and hot vacuum hull curing process. New for 2011, are 41 extra half tide pontoon berths, providing a total of just under 160 half tide berths for vessels up to 20m LOA. Better still, this marina happens to have the cheapest overnight pontoon berthing in the entire Solent region. All vessels on the half tide pontoons come to rest on soft mud and can therefore accommodate all types of propulsion and keel configurations.
Although the marina is off the beaten track, you're guaranteed a quiet and peaceful night here and about a 10 min walking away northbound along the Havant Road is the excellent Maypole Pub and further on is the Yew Tree. The Havant Road is the main arterial road on Hayling Island with regular bus services to Havant, Fareham Chichester and Portsmouth. The walks along the creek are very worthwhile with splendid views across Chichester Harbour.
