Cockpit Essentials

Yarmouth Harbour’s Cockpit Essentials shop is easy to find as it’s in Reception where visitors come to pay their mooring fees.

Cockpit Essentials is your convenient one-stop shop with a whole range of items for sale plus comfortable seating, free Wi-Fi, and cashback should you need it.

Enjoy fresh bean to cup coffee from our coffee machine whilst charging your mobile devices, watch the latest news and check local weather conditions on our screens.

We sell soft drinks and snacks, including chocolate bars and crips, as well as a delicious range of Purbeck ice creams in an assortment of flavours.

You can also find many products made on the Isle of Wight in Cockpit Essentials. These include Wight Distillery’s range of gin, Solent Spirit’s rums and Tipsy Wight’s vodkas. In addition, we have tonic water and ice to make a drink in the Island sunshine complete.

The Isle of Wight theme continues with Wight Crystal’s bottled water, lemonade and ginger beer, as well as biscuits from the Isle of Wight Biscuit Company.

If you’ve forgotten your wash kit, we have a wide range of toiletries for sale. To keep the galley going we supply butane gas in both Camping Gaz and Calor Gas bottles. For your engines we sell lubricants and Fuel Set fuel additive.

Why not take a branded souvenir of your visit back home? We sell fine china ‘Yarmouth Harbour’ mugs, caps, ponchos, burgees, umbrellas and more. You can also buy various local Yarmouth, West Wight and Isle of Wight maps and guides to help you find your way around the area.

Plus, also in Reception there’s the Yarmouth Tourist Information Point, which stocks a wide range of leaflets about places to go, activities to try, and the many popular attractions on the Island.
