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, restaurants, café and shops.
With a 70 metre superyacht berth, a 60 metre visitor berth and a modern shower and toilet block including disabled facilities, Shamrock Quay is able to cater for all boat owners.
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. Southampton city centre is only a few minutes away and with access to the M3 nearby, the marina is within easy reach of London.
As well as providing first-class berthing and marina services, Shamrock Quay has a boatyard within it, perfect for when you need to carry out maintenance work or repairs on your boat. Besides storage ashore for over 200 boats, there is a 75 ton travel hoist and a 47 ton boat mover. All lifting at the yard is carried out by MDL’s professional, highly qualified team.
There are also over 40 companies on site offering a wide variety of specialist services ranging from sail makers to engineers. There is also a well-stocked chandlery.
