|Situated in the shelter of Southampton Water, Ocean Village is more than a marina. Surrounded by a wealth of shops, restaurants, cinemas and bars, it offers outstanding recreational facilities. Overlooking the marina is
The Royal Southampton Yacht Club, which although a members club, offers berth holders and visitors a warm and friendly welcome.
The basin is deep enough to offer mooring facilities for tall ships and large yachts and has become famous for hosting the start and/or finish of around the world yacht races such as the BT Global Challenge. From the marina, there is direct access to superb and varied cruising. To the west is the picturesque Beaulieu River and the surrounding New Forest.
