Welcome aboard, River Hamble

The River Hamble in Hampshire is one of the UK’s boating honeypots. The three mile stretch from the mouth to Swanwick bridge is home to over 3,000 boats, famous yacht clubs, yachting pubs plus eight marinas and boatyards.

County Council

The River Hamble Harbour Authority is a municipal port under the governance of Hampshire County Council. The harbour team is responsible for safety, environmental protection, safe navigation and moorings management.

The Authority manages over 700 mid-river moorings for the Crown Estate, operates three visitor pontoons, tender berthing, slipways, scrubbing grids and quayside. The team patrol the river daily, collecting mooring fees and harbour dues and provides towing and other marine services.

Being such a popular boating location means that the administration team manages a mooring waiting list of over 500 people, many of whom are willing to wait a decade for a mooring.
