Newport is a town located off the south coast of England at about the centre of the Isle of Wight.

The town offers the option of drying out alongside its quay walls or pontoons in the heart of the town.

Set almost at the middle of the island and dry for the majority of the time the town offers complete protection from all conditions. Safe access may be had on the top of the tide in all reasonable conditions during daylight.
