About the Marina


In its day, this basin was the main terminus for the cross channel ferries. When the ferry traffic moved to Portsmouth the void paved the way for urban regeneration and thus Ocean Village was created. The marina has become famous for hosting the start and finish of the round-the-world yacht races such as the Volvo and BT Global Challenge and because of its long deep water pontoons, it can provide berths for tall ships and other large yachts. Unlike most MDL marinas, its doesn’t offer much in the way of yacht servicing and repair facilities. For a berth right in the heart of Southampton, this is the best available, however its still quite a stroll into the city centre though, and I’d advise making the most of the City Bus network. For provisions and essentials there’s a very handy Tesco Express near the road entrance to the marina - open 7 days a week from 7am to 11pm
 

Marina Approaches


The marina is about a mile north of the junction of the Rivers Test and Itchen, and its just short of the Itchen road bridge. Coastal commercial traffic uses this stretch of the water quite frequently, so keep well to the starboard side of the Itchen and cross swiftly into the marina entrance. Immediately on the starboard side of the entrance is the dock office pontoon where you can tie up to arrange berthing.
