About the Marina


This marina was named after the TS Mercury - a floating hulk converted from a wooden ship of the line and was turned into a cadet sea school. The old TS Mercury has been restored to its former self as HMS Gannet, and is now on display in the Royal Historic Dockyard, next door to MDL’s Chatham Marina. Robin Knox Johnston was the original founder of this marina before it was taken over by MDL. The Mercury Yacht Harbour, as it is now known, is the last and perhaps the quietest of the three MDL marinas on the Hamble. It’s rather remote from civilisation, but that’s offset by the truly excellent river view restaurant/bar - ‘The Waters Edge’. The marina is tucked away in a picturesque location surrounded by thick woodland and where Badnam Creek flows into the Hamble River. This is a beautifully sheltered and shallow creek that makes a fascinating place for kids to explore in a dinghy. Moored within the creek are a hand full of old Thames barges and MTBs which have been converted into house boats, each with their own unique garden frontage.
 

Marina Approaches


No potential hazards apart from the strong ebb tides which may effect manoeuvring on the outer pontoons, but most of the marina is tucked away and sheltered from the ebb.
