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 and 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.
There is storage ashore for over 120 boats and a slipway with ample space for trailer and car storage. Both petrol and diesel are available at cost to Freedom Berthing members.
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 the independent cinema there. In addition, a regular ferry service runs from Hythe right into the centre of Southampton.
To reward our loyal berth holders and visitors in the UK, we’ve introduced Otium Rewards. Our brand new loyalty scheme is your fast-track to exclusive loyalty points and rewards. It’s free to join and every point you earn gives you £1 that can be spent on any of our services.
Earn double points on MDL boatyard services
Between 1st October and the 31st December 2021, we’re offering double Otium points on our boatyard services, including lifting and scrubs to help owners carry out essential maintenance work for the season ahead.* This means that for every £100 spent on boatyard services, visitors will get £28 in points to spend on any of our services.
Buy 1 month’s winter berthing and get 1 month FREE
Members can also boost their points on winter berthing with Otium Rewards and experience 100% more. For every monthly berth purchased between 1st October and 31st December, they’ll get one month FREE* (maximum 3 months). This is ideal for anyone wishing to keep their boat safe and secure over the winter months, or for those wanting to carry on cruising from the comfort and convenience of a marina berth, serviced with excellent shoreside facilities.
*All services are subject to availability and must be taken during the offer period. Payment is to be made in full in advance of the service. View full terms and conditions here.
