{"id":21,"name":"Marina","remember_token":null,"created_at":null,"updated_at":null} East Cowes Marina
East Cowes, United Kingdom
With the exception of a few berths, the marina is dredged to 2m. We've happily moored Clipper round-the-world yachts, Swan 60s and even a Volvo 70. Very deep draught yachts should check clearance at the chain ferry. The marina office, washrooms and laundry are located in the Octagon building, near L and M pontoons and the main access ramp. The office is open 8am to 5pm in the winter, and 8am to 7pm in the summer, extending to 8pm or later during July and August. We have a wide range of tourist and travel information, and can advise on days out and places to eat and more.

Please produce minimum wash in this area, keeping your speed below 6 knots through the water. Pontoon moorings are available although most require use of a tender or the Folly water taxis to get ashore.
