Hythe Marina Village was the first marina village to be built in the UK and is still one of our finest. Located on Southampton Water's western shore, it’s a unique development of a 206-berth marina, waterside homes, shops, restaurants, bars and a boutique hotel.
As well as its first-class berthing and marina services, Hythe Marina Village has a boatyard within it for DIY maintenance work, using the various marine services on site, or getting help from our own professional, highly qualified team.
We can lift vessels up to 40 tons (if you need more, please check in advance), and we offer an emergency boat lifting facility, general cranage up to 8 tons and cradle hire for various boat types.
There is storage ashore for over 160 boats, including a secure compound for small boat storage – ideal for trailer sailors – and a slipway with ample space for trailer and car storage. Both petrol and diesel are available at cost to Freedom Berthing members.
Out and about
The marina entrance is controlled by lock gates, operated 24 hours a day throughout the year, and there is easy access to Southampton Water and several of our other marinas situated in and around the Solent. Cruising enthusiasts can explore the Beaulieu River to the west or continue on to the bustling town of Lymington, close to the New Forest.
Heading east takes you to Portsmouth, steeped in naval history, and there are numerous anchorages to explore within the sheltered waters of Chichester Harbour.
It's easy to pop across to our other marina at Ocean Village, in the centre of Southampton, for dinner or to visit one of the two cinemas there. In addition, a regular ferry service runs from Hythe right into the centre of Southampton.
Freedom Berthing gives you even more freedom to explore any of the 18 marinas in our UK network stretching from Devon to Suffolk, plus 96 European destinations in France, Spain and Italy.
*larger vessels can be accommodated but check with marina in advance.
