About the Marina


Hythe claims to be the first purpose built marina village in the UK, appealing to boat owners who want to live beside their boat and be minutes away from the open water. What MDL have created is a unique community of waterside homes built on a reclaimed land, thus making a peaceful little oasis with its own shops, restaurants and bars etc. Within the marina complex there’s the ‘Boat House’ pub, the restaurant ‘La Vista’ just opposite, and in the marina’s ‘Village Centre’ are some shops which sell essentials and newspapers etc. For a more comprehensive range of supplies there’s a Waitrose supermarket and a post office 5 mins walk away in Hythe. Yacht support services includes a chandlery and a watersports clothing shop, plus there’s boat hoist, a couple boat repair yards with a limited area for hard standing etc. Being a locked in basin the use of the heads is strictly forbidden, and a pump out facility is provided at the fuel berth. There are no dedicated visitors berths here, and berthing is subject to the number of resident berth holders being away at the time.
 

Marina Approaches


As you steam up Southampton Water, the marina entrance is just beyond the Hythe Pier and one should lookout for the regular ferry service which runs between the Hythe Pier and Southampton Town Quay, since the ferry will cut cross the initial approaches to the marina. Yachts should head for the mouth of the entrance channel marked by an ECM Q(3)10s. paired with a red pile mark Fl(2) R.5s. Negotiate the short 200m long dredged channel (2m) marked by red and green pile beacons on a bearing 220°.

There’s a waiting pontoon on the port hand side of the lock gate entrance where visitors should wait for berthing availability and instructions - call VHF 80 or 02380 207073 (office hrs) or 07801 172574 (24hrs) prior to arrival. The lock gates are manned 24 hours a day and all traffic is controlled by traffic lights At 2 hours either side of high water, the gate usually remains open for a free flow.
