Home   Marinas   MDL Saxon Wharf

Saxon Wharf is a marine service centre offering outstanding facilities for superyachts and other large craft. Situated on Southampton's River Itchen, north of Shamrock Quay, it’s the ideal location for big boats in need of secure, quick turnaround lift-outs, repair work or full scale refits. Its position near the centre of Southampton gives it easy access to the motorway network.

Boatyard Facilities

Saxon Wharf has a 200-ton boat hoist and heavy duty, fully serviced pontoons accommodating boats up to 80 metres. The Dry Stack facility offers secure dry berthing and on-demand launching and lifting for boats up to 13 metres. There’s ample space for storage ashore and a wide range of marine trade tenants on site offering a variety of professional services.

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.
