Welcome to Portsmouth Moorings

Starting from just £350 per year we operate a variety of tidal and deep water moorings in the sheltered western reaches of Portsmouth Harbour.

Suitable for both sailing and power boats up to about 9 metres, these are located in delightful natural surroundings and offer quick access to the Solent, Isle of Wight and nearby ports of interest along this attractive stretch of the south coast.

Historic Yarmouth, busy Lymington and Newtown Creek are in the Western Solent, Bembridge has a welcoming sailing club whilst Priory Bay and Ryde are beach side destinations just a couple of hours away.

Area 25 – Close to dinghy store

Area 29 – Area of Special Scientific Interest

The moorings offer you

  • Sheltered locations

  • Easy access to the Solent

  • Free car park

  • Public pontoon and launching slipway

The large enclosed area of Portsmouth Harbour not only provides a safe haven but is also excellent for day sailing or just enjoying being on the water. The moorings are in an Area of Special Scientific Interest and it is an important habitat for a wide variety of marine birds.

Access to the water is via our own foreshore or by the public pontoon and there is ample free parking in St Helier Road. Our moorings are fully maintained by James and Luke.
