Home   Marinas   MDL Cobbs Quay Marina

Cobb’s Quay Marina at Hamworthy in Holes Bay lies in Poole Harbour, the world's second largest natural harbour. It has a lively, seafaring atmosphere, and with 1130 berths it’s a favourite with yachtsmen and motor cruisers alike.

The marina has first-class facilities, including a chandlery and convenience store. There is a state of the art toilet and shower building with sanitary machines, a reception lobby, disabled facilities, a laundrette, and the ever popular Cobbs Bar & Restaurant.

Dry Stack Facilities

There’s a 280-berth dry stack system for motorboats up to 10 metres, although this is dependent on the vessel (e.g. those with fixed radar arches). Offering increased security and lower maintenance costs, the service includes unlimited launching on arrival, seven days a week.

For even greater ease, we have an online booking system to allow Dry Stack customers to make advanced bookings to have their boats launched, ready for their next on water adventure. Access is via the MyMDL customer portal.


Diesel, petrol and gas are all available at the marina. Please note that our Designated Refuelling Area is the Fuel Pontoon and that this is the only area that customers are permitted to fuel vessels.

Online bookings can be made via MyMDL for Cobb's Quay Marina and any of our fuel stations in the UK.

Out and About

Around Cobb’s Quay there are many natural inlets and small islands to explore by boat. Brownsea Island, the largest of the islands in the harbour, is owned by the National Trust. Its woodland, heath and wetland areas are host to rare birds such as spoonbills, red squirrels and all manner of wildlife.

Out of the harbour to the east lies the Solent, offering year-round racing and sheltered cruising around the Isle of Wight. To the west is Studland Bay and Swanage, with its popular beach and white cliffs. Recreational boaters who use, visit and enjoy Studland Bay are being asked to help protect its precious habitats for the future. Read more here.

Travelling further west, there are extensive opportunities for cruising in the unspoilt waters of Torbay and the West Country.
