Bembridge Harbour is situated at the very eastern end of the Island in beautiful surrounding countryside between Bembridge and St Helens, and is the only major harbour on the Island that does not have any commercial shipping traffic or a direct ferry connection to the mainland.


During the past seven years, and under new ownership, the harbour has undergone a complete transformation to meet the demands of privately owned leisure boats as part of a long term financial investment programme. To date the concentration has been directed at improving the ‘on- the-water’ experience with new pontoons, better electrical supply in both marinas, increased dredging, improvements to buoyage and navigational aids, Port Marine Safety Code provision, staff training and new management software. Even both harbour taxis have been equipped with new engines.


The next phase will see much needed improvements on-shore - a new admin and facilities complex at the visitors’ marina, a new floating facilities unit and a much larger car park for the residents’ marina, together with the subsequent development of 13 houses overlooking the harbour. This new low-density housing development


will be on two sites and will have some fantastic views across the harbour and the downs as well as across the Solent.


The backbone of any harbour comes from the services offered by it’ local community; they are very fortunate in being able to boast two sailing clubs, an angling club, and five boatyards each offering different specialisations depending on the type and size of boat. A varied selection of pubs and restaurants in both St Helens and Bembridge serve the local delicacy of Bembridge crab, hence they are justifiably proud of their commercial fishing fleet, and most serve local produce wherever possible.


The RNLI have had a lifeboat station just outside the harbour since 1867 and constructed a new purpose- built base in 2012 for all-weather launchings together with being equipped with the latest state-of-the- art off-shore lifeboat.


In 2013 the harbour took over the ex-Hoverworks building, converted it into a drystack storage operation under the trading name of Bembridge Boat Storage, imported a large fork lift from the USA, and now store boats up to 5 tonnes in weight and 30’ in length inside and outside the shed in custom built racks. Although regarded as a premier service, it is undoubtedly the future direction for small craft and Bembridge Harbour are very proud to be the only facility of this kind on the Island.


Bembridge Harbour is regarded as the central focal point in East Wight, comparing favourably with both Cowes and Yarmouth for marine based activities, and they are always pleased to welcome new visitors.


Come and discover for yourself the delights of this unspoilt harbour on the Eastern Solent.
