Yarmouth Harbour Commissioners continues to maintain our “Open Port policy” and our normal harbour patrols will provide guidance, assistance and policing of our General Directions where required.

In-line with current government guidance, no overnight, or short stay visitors will be permitted into the Harbour until further notice.

Yarmouth Harbour is currently putting safety measures in place to receive day visits from our customers. In the meantime, for the safety of everyone, we would ask that recreational marine users remain patient and understanding as we continue to prepare. For now, all our shore-based facilities remain closed until further notice.

We look forward to welcoming you to Yarmouth Harbour soon.


If you would like to use one of our slipways, please ask for permission and pay the appropriate fee by contacting the Harbour on +44 (0)1983 760321 or VHF 68 .

There are several slipways that the public may use in Yarmouth. The largest slipway is on the corner between the South Quay and the Town Quay.  It can be accessed via the Wightlink marshalling area. Users need to be mindful of the queuing traffic waiting for the ferry and also traffic leaving the ferry and proceeding towards the main road.

South of the Yar Bridge on the east bank of the river a small slipway is available to the public. Access from the shore is via the Council car park and the dinghy park.  The dinghy park gate key is available from the Harbour Office.

At the Western end of the South Quay there is a small slipway close to the Harbour Office, which is steeper than the other slipways.

Remember, slipways can be dangerous places if not used properly.
