About the Marina


Sometimes still referred to as Moodys from its former days, its now owned by Premier Marinas. Being at the head of Hamble River, and already having had to pass 5 marinas to reach it, one may justifiably question the attraction for visiting yachtsmen, but actually its quite popular - with good reasons. One is the Jolly Sailor pub and the other is that it has the best communication links of all the marinas on the Hamble River. The marina can accommodate vessels up to 65ft on the finger pontoons and the on-site facilities and support services are superb for both power and sail craft. The marina is particularly popular for motorboaters which are the only craft that can get under the Bursledon Bridge and enjoy the upper reaches of the Hamble River - totally unspoiled and where not a single property fronts onto the river bank. The Bursledon Station gives you a choice of going east to Portsmouth or west to Southampton.

By the end of 2015 and after much public wrangling the marina campus will have been turned almost completely upside down. Haul out and boatyard services will have moved to the upstream end whilst a vast car parking area will be built at the downstream end. Central to the campus will be two new pavillions, one for improved boatyard services and the other is for new bar and restaurant facilities for both the berthholders and the public to enjoy.
