to BEAULIEU River
In the Solent, almost opposite Cowes, the Beaulieu River and the 18th century shipbuilding village of Buckler's Hard occupy a superb location surrounded by oak woodland within the Beaulieu Estate. Buckler's Hard has been in the private ownership of the Montagu family since it was founded in 1724. It was here that wooden ships for the English Fleet were built and the village today retains much of the atmosphere of its shipbuilding origins.
The uniquely situated Yacht Harbour offers 110 berths in a beautiful and sheltered reach of the Beaulieu River. Full Marina facilities include toilets and showers and launderette, fuel, yacht valet service and boat builders, to name but a few. Visitor attractions nearby include the National Motor Museum, Palace House, Beaulieu Abbey and Monastic Life Exhibition plus additional Rides and Drives which combine to form one of the country's most enjoyable visitor attractions.
The Marina is open 24 hours a day with speed restricted to 5 knots. Jet-skiing, water skiing, board sailing, underwater diving activities, mooring onto navigation buoys, beacons or marks and anchoring 1 mile either side of Bucklers Hard are not permitted.
