Set just East of Eastbourne in Sussex, Sovereign Harbour, Premier’s Eastbourne marina, is made up of five private and tranquil harbours that together offer over 800 quality berths. Sovereign Harbour is entered via one of two 24-hour high capacity locks that incorporate generous floating pontoons that rise and fall with the water, making the lock very safe and easy to navigate – even for novice mariners.
The approach into Sovereign Harbour marinas lock is 2.4 metres below chart datum. Once inside the marina, Sovereign Harbour offers outstanding facilities and great customer service; together these attributes have earned the marina The Yacht Harbour Association’s prestigious Five Gold Anchors Award; TYHA ratings range from one to five Gold Anchors and provide boaters with a quality rating for a marina.
The marina’s location is excellent too, providing easy cruising along the South Coast - west to Premier’s Brighton and Chichester marinas and to the delights of the Solent - and east to the Kentish coastal ports. Sovereign Harbour also makes a perfect start point for crossing the English Channel to France, Holland and Belgium.
Back on shore, Sovereign Harbour’s leisure area, ‘The Waterfront’, boasts wine bars, restaurants and cafés that overlook the water and add to the laid-back ambiance of the marina. The Waterfront also runs an events programme across the year, featuring an urban beach experience for young children in the warmer months, a spring market, activity weekends and a summer film by the water – visit www.eastbournewaterfront.co.uk to keep up to date.
Close to The Waterfront lies Sovereign Harbour Yacht Club and adjacent, a retail park. Here you’ll find an Asda, ‘high street’ retailers and a gym. But if you are looking for more to do, there are amazing coastal walks to enjoy and the Victorian seaside town of Eastbourne, with its iconic pier, is just a seafront promenade away.
Besides berthing, Premier’s Sovereign Harbour offers a modern fully serviced boatyard and there’s a good mix of tenant marine services on site. Together these boat repair services make Premier’s Eastbourne marina an ideal place in which to carry out routine boat maintenance or to make a running repair.
