At the mouth of Portsmouth Harbour, with immediate deep-water access to the Solent, Endeavour Quay lies just eight miles from the marine hubs of Cowes and Hamble.
Formerly the famous Camper & Nicholsons’ shipyard, Premier Marinas’ specialist boatyard is a world-class facility. The Gosport boatyard offers a comprehensive range of the highest quality yard services for the refit, storage and repair of yachts and commercial vessels up to 40 metres long or 180 tonnes.
Endeavour Quay history
Endeavour Quay was established in 2005 after taking over the premises previously occupied by Camper & Nicholsons. Steeped in history, with a boatyard on the site since the 1790s, numerous famous boats have been built in the Gosport yard including the J Class yacht ‘Endeavour’ which gives the boatyard its name.
