How to get in?


Lymington Yacht Haven is located on the southern flank of the small historic market and harbour town of Lymington. The town is situated inside The Solent about three miles northeast of Hurst Point and in the Lymington River that flows into the north side of The Solent through a saltmarsh. It is the first marina encountered to port immediately behind the southern wave screen on the west side of the river less than half a mile within the entrance.


The marina caters for 500 vessels but holds no specific visitor berths. It accommodates visiting yachts in the vacant berths belonging to resident holders who are away. It is advisable to contact the marina in advance and make arrangements regarding an intended stay P: +44 1590 677071 VHF: Ch. 80.


Lymington is accessible to most leisure vessels at all stages of the tide but it is not an excessively deep harbour. The construction of a causeway in the eighteenth century has reduced the rivers scouring effect and led to shallowing. The constant toing and froing of the ferries helps keep the lower channel’s minimums to 2.4 metres chart datum, up to the entrance at Lymington Yacht Haven.
