Yachts, day sailors or slipway launched craft are always welcome at Langstone Harbour.
Yachts - There is deep water at the harbour entrance at all states of the tide (although shoals either side of the entrance channel extend well out into the Solent and the ebb and flow streams at the Harbour entrance are strong). The moorings on the West side of the Run belong to the Eastney Cruising Association and should not be used without the prior consent of the Association.
Fuel, water and waste reception facilities are available at the Hayling pontoon and Southsea Marina. Harbour Office call up - Channel 12/16, Working frequency Channel 12. Call ’Langstone Harbour Radio’.
Slipways - Public slipways beside the Harbour Office in Ferry Road, Hayling; south of the ECA in Ferry Road, Eastney; and in the Broadmarsh Coastal Park, off the A27, Havant.
Marina - Southsea Marina in the shelter of Eastney Lake in the southwest of the harbour lies to the west of Eastney Point ferry staging and is accessible over a cill 3 hours each side of high water - a waiting pontoon is available. Pump out facilities (for ’black water’ from sea toilets) are available at Southsea Marina.
Visitor Moorings - Visitors to Langstone Harbour can contact the harbour office where staff will direct them to a visitor mooring appropriate for their vessel. Competitively priced short term mooring rentals are also available for those wishing to extend their stay.
Speed Limit - The speed limit throughout the Harbour is 10 knots, in the Marina Channel 5 knots.
Water Skiing - allowed for licensed vessels only (licenses available from the Harbour Office to members of the Langstone Harbour Water Ski Association [LHWSA]) and only in the designated zone. The water ski area is not a go-fast zone and only vessels actually towing a LHWSA skier are permitted to exceed the 10 knot harbour speed limit.
Jet Skis - may launch at public slipways in the Run subject to the issue of a permit by the Harbour Master, but must proceed directly to sea to operate at speed. Jet Skis are not allowed in the mooring areas. There is a speed limit of 10 knots in all parts of the harbour.
Seaworthiness - Please make sure that your vessel is fit for use in all respects. In particular, it is important that your engine is reliable. Our patrol staff afloat will render assistance if they can but there will be a charge for their services.
All visiting vessels are liable for Harbour dues
