Chichester Marina is located at the eastern end of Chichester Harbour, West Sussex, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that offers a myriad of quiet anchorages to discover and easy access to the popular cruising grounds of the Solent. Family friendly and ideal for boaters of all abilities, the harbour and the marina within it are perfect for nature and bird watching, walking in the countryside, or just soaking up the ambiance whilst relaxing aboard a boat at the South Coast marina.
A locked marina with over 1,000 berths, two boat hoists, a slipway and ample boat storage ashore, Chichester Marina is one of the UK’s largest marinas but because the marina is immersed in stunning scenery and its buildings are architecturally low key, it has a marked air of peace and tranquillity.
Chichester Marina has been awarded Five Gold Anchors by The Yacht Harbour Association. This is the highest possible award from the most prestigious marina rating scheme in the world, guaranteeing excellent service and the finest facilities which, at Chichester Marina, include luxury toilets and showers.
Eating out on the marina is good too, with a thriving yacht club for berth holders and yachtsmen alike, and The Boat House Café offering breakfast, lunch and supper served with amazing views out across the harbour.
Close by, you’ll find the sandy beaches of East Head to explore with the harbour itself dotted with pretty villages and picturesque hamlets to visit on foot or by boat. Further afield, Goodwood House and the Fishbourne Roman Palace are worth a visit or, for something different, you can follow the canal path to the historic city of Chichester for the famous Chichester Festival Theatre and high street shopping.
The South Coast marina's £3.5m state-of-the-art boatyard is home to a wide variety of tenant marine services and a Coastal and Outdoor Living store. There are also new and used boat sales offices in the boatyard complex and these have attracted companies such as Ancasta International Boat Sales and Jeanneau Power & Sail.
