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. There is also the ever-popular Drift: Hayling Island bar and restaurant, marine engineers, and fibreglass repair services.
Fuel is also available and online bookings can be made via MyMDL for Sparkes Marina and any of our fuel stations in the UK.
Sparkes Marina now has 20 ground racks available for customers with boats up to 9 metres to ‘berth’ their boats out of the water, on the shore. Space for boats stored on their trailers has also been created, further expanding the options available for boaters to get out on the water and enjoy their leisure time. Benefiting from the advantages that dry storage offers, such as easy access, increased peace of mind, reduced boat maintenance costs, owners can request a lift or launch seven days a week.
The Green Blue has developed an online map to show which marinas, boatyards and harbours provide environmental facilities such as pump out, black water/Elsan disposal, recycling, freshwater refill points, hazardous waste disposal and filtered/bunded boat washdown. Click here for the location map.
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.
