Sparkes Marina is situated on the south-east tip of Hayling Island within Chichester Harbour, one of Europe's largest natural harbours. An array of birds and marine life, stunning sunsets and calm waters are just some of the advantages of our beautiful location.
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; and for our annual berth holders, who benefit from the exclusive privileges of our Freedom Berthing scheme, the short-stay visitor berthing charge is waived. A cruise to the West Country is also appealing and annual berth holders 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.
The facilities at this 140-berth marina include 24-hour showers and toilets, a laundry room, an office / reception, and also the popular on-site Piranha Bar & Restaurant.
In addition to its berthing and marina services, Sparkes Marina has many skilled professionals on site. These include 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 trades people 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.
