For sheer location alone, Swanwick Marina is hard to beat. Situated right at the heart of the boating activity on the River Hamble, and home to Princess Motor Yacht Sales, Southampton, the marina enjoys quick and easy access to the cruising grounds of the Solent and claims its position as one of the UK’s prime locations.
Owned by Premier Marinas, the marina has benefitted from a 5.8 million investment programme, with an extensive number of improvements made to the site over the last two years. There are now luxury facilities for berth holders and visitors at the marina, including over 300 first-class berths with generous pontoons and wide fairways. There is also Prestige Berthing for boats over 18m – at no additional cost with an impressive package of extras, including: a dedicated berth with a personalised nameplate and Dockbox, free WiFi, fendering and LED lighting on the pontoons for safer and easier berthing.
Besides offering first-class berthing, Swanwick Marina boasts a new state-of-the-art boatyard with purpose-built offices and workshops which house an outstanding mix of boat sales companies and marine tenant services. The wide range of marine services available means boat owners have access to experts specialising in everything from engine repairs and heating installations to electronics and shore-based training.
Add a brand new dry stack for up to 80 boats, a new hoist bay and waiting pontoon, together with a new self-serve fuel bay complete with high-speed pump for faster, user-friendly fuelling of large vessels and Swanwick Marina is the ideal place to berth or make a running repair. There are also extensive shore-side facilities, including a modern marina reception, 6000 sq. ft. storage facility, a well-stocked chandlery and a bar café called The Boat House overlooking the prettiest stretch of the river.
