Yarmouth Harbour lies on the Isle of Wight’s northwest coastline and acts as a gateway to West Wight’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Strategically located at the entrance to the western Solent and providing walk-ashore access to Yarmouth town, it’s a destination that appeals to vessels based throughout the UK central south coast region and beyond. Yarmouth’s pretty harbour is very popular with visiting seafarers yet remains somewhat a hidden gem of the Solent. Visiting vessels are welcomed throughout the year. Over 150 visitor berths are available daily and allocated on arrival by our friendly Berthing Masters. A limited number of berths can be booked in advance. Unique to Yarmouth is the on-water berthing assistance to help take the stress out of mooring up so you can spend more time enjoying the coastline and countryside. Picturesque Yarmouth Harbour and the adjacent town with its eclectic, boutique shops and galleries and excellent places to eat and drink is a fantastic destination at any time of year. Flowing into Yarmouth Harbour is the Western Yar Estuary with its abundant wildlife and gorgeous riverside walks. In Yarmouth and the beautiful West Wight beyond, there are lots of attractions and activities for visitors to enjoy.

The harbour layout has been changed from that shown in the photographs. There are now more alongside berths (these need to be pre-booked - visit harbour web site - particulary weekends). Power and water available. The outer pontoon has been moved closer to the wall and now only available to berth alongside on the harbour side and only raft two deep. Not attached to the shore. No power or water. Showers are extra at £1.25 per token.
