Sparkes Marina, on the south-east tip of Hayling Island, lies within Chichester Harbour – one of Europe's largest natural harbours. The area is famous for its birds and marine life and stunning sunsets.
The facilities at this 140-berth marina include 24-hour showers and toilets, a laundry room, an office and reception, plus an all-new bar and restaurant to be opened early 2017.
In addition to its berthing and marina services, Sparkes Marina has many skilled professionals on site. There are specialists in engineering, outboard engines, glass fibre repairs, rigging, sails and covers, marine carpentry, electrical, boat management and valeting. All our tenants are professionally qualified tradespeople who offer top quality work at competitive prices.
Our facilities include storage ashore for over 200 boats as well as a 40-ton mobile crane for lifting out and boat movement. Other services on site include fuel, chandlery, new and used yacht sales at Sparkes Marine Agency, and the Hayling Sea School which offers tuition in power and sail vessels.
Out and about
There are plenty of anchorages to explore within the immediate area, such as Itchenor with its quaint pubs or Bosham village. Further afield, sail west to historic Portsmouth, explore the coastline around the Isle of Wight or go racing in the Solent.
Our Northney, Hamble and Solent marinas are all within easy reach. A cruise to the West Country is also appealing and our Freedom Berthing members can take advantage of the reciprocal berthing arrangements at our marinas in Plymouth and Torbay. The more adventurous can visit the Channel Islands, Holland and Belgium.
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.
