Welcome to Universal Marina

Nestled on the east bank of the beautiful River Hamble, Premier’s Universal Marina provides a hidden oasis for a wide range of boats.

A short drive down the local access road reveals this hidden gem. Surrounded by trees, Universal feels a world away from the bustle of life, and yet the marina is within easy reach of the Solent and all its waters have to offer. Meanwhile, you’ll find a full-service boatyard, dry stack boat storage and a range of marina berths all with 24-hour access and private parking.

River Hamble atmosphere

The beauty of the River Hamble is very evident at Universal. You can make the most of its relaxing atmosphere ashore with a choice of the cosy Mermaid’s coffee shop or a full dining experience at the riverside Banana Wharf restaurant. Enjoy tranquil walks along the tree-lined riverbanks, with the knowledge that the conveniences of Portsmouth or Southampton are just a short drive away.
