|Shamrock Quay is a marina steeped in history, taking its name from the famous J-class yacht, Shamrock V, which was built on this site in 1931 to challenge for the America's Cup. This 255 berth marina is still a major centre for refit and boat building with many specialist trades on site, as well as a bar, continental restaurant, cafe and shops.
Following a £1.5 million refurbishment, the marina now boasts a 70 metre specialist superyacht berth, a 60 metre visitor berth and a new shower and toilet block featuring a purpose-designed facility for disabled berth holders.
Head down Southampton Water and there are numerous cruising opportunities available. There is plenty of racing action in the Solent and a weekend in the Channel Islands is easily possible.
