Mercury Yacht Harbour is set in a sheltered wooded site where the shallow waters of Badnam Creek join the River Hamble. Originally built by Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, the marina offers berthing for 360 boats and enjoys deep water at all states of tide. Among its excellent facilities are a well-stocked chandlery as well as a bar and restaurant with waterfront views.
Mercury Yacht Harbour offers excellent boatyard facilities for boat repairs or maintenance work. Besides winter storage ashore for over 100 boats, there is a 20-ton travel hoist and boat mover. All lifting at the yard is carried out by MDL's professional, highly qualified team. A number of companies both on site and locally offer a wide variety of specialist services ranging from sail makers to engineers. Further marine services are available at Shamrock Quay and Hamble Point Marina.
Out and about
The marina is just a 20-minute walk from Hamble village. It is a scenic, peaceful spot, which still provides easy access to Southampton Water and the Solent. There are plenty of other tranquil anchorages to visit, such as Newtown Creek on the Isle of Wight or the pretty Beaulieu River.
Further afield is Poole Harbour and to the east lie Portsmouth and the sheltered waters of Chichester Harbour.
There's always activity on the River Hamble, with fleets of racers out every weekend during the summer. Throughout autumn, many sailors participate in the Hamble Winter Series. Mercury Yacht Harbour also provides an ideal base from which to visit some of our other marinas in the Southampton area. Nearby Ocean Village Marina offers a lively scene with two cinemas, restaurants and bars.
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.
