MOORINGS

There are around 600 moorings in Langstone Harbour providing an excellent and cost effective way to keep your boat afloat and access the wider Solent

Mooring in the Harbour is limited to a small number of areas and priced according to the zone.

Deep water mooring "Zones" are relative to the pontoons at Eastney Point and Ferry point with Zone 1 less than half a mile from the pontoons, Zone 2 between half a mile and one mile and Zone 3 more than a mile from the pontoons.

Tidal mooring zones are more complex, with the general rule that the more expensive mooring sites are closer to the shore, although there are exceptions. All tidal mud moorings are expected to take the ground at low water.  Unlike the Board-maintained deepwater moorings, the block, tackle and picking up buoys for these moorings need to be provided and laid by the mooring holder.

Contact the Harbour Office for more details.
