About the Marina


This used to be the old site of the Camper & Nicholsons yard and the marina took its name from the famous J-class yacht 'Shamrock V' which was built to challenge for the 1931 Americas Cup.

Ashore, there are 60 marine associated companies offering a wide range of specialist support services, boat building and repair facilities - making it perfect location for winter lay-up, maintenance and repair work. The focal point ashore is a converted warehouse which features the ‘Waterfront Bar’ and numerous shops and businesses. Next door to this building, is the chandlery, ‘Taps Restaurant’ and the ‘Yellow Welly Cafe’ which sells milk to visiting yachtsman in need.

 

Marina Approaches


The marina is about 1300m north 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. During LWS, the inner berths can get quite shallow, and generally the marina is quite exposed to tidal currents so its advisable to arrive at slack water.
