    Default marina/boatyard recommendations Southampton area.

    I'm working on a plan to bring a 48' motor yacht round to the Solent area as a semi-liveaboard whilst cleaning and fettling and trying to sell. I'd like to take her to Quay Lane in Gosport where I keep my boat, but she needs to stay afloat if I'm going to be living on board.
    So I wonder if people know of suitable cheap-or at least affordable-places they can tell me about? I'm thinking maybe up the Itchen? I don't care if it's industrial or a working yard or what the view from my window will be.
    Bottom line is cost.
    Also a swinging mooring is out as l need to commute every day and don't want to start/finish with a dinghy ride.
    Here's a link in case anyone is interested :-)

    Foulkes AKA the Chandlery Barge at the top of the River Hamble, (Blundell Lane, Bursledon) charge £10.25 / foot / month in their fully wet walk ashore berths, lesser fees for those that get quite shallow and less again for those that dry out . Plenty of liveaboards and a real old fashioned yard.
    Interested in Corvettes PM me for details of the Corvette Motorboat Association

    You could try Lauren Marine on the Itchen, its in Hazel Road, Woolston, its cheap, but does dry out, plus you have to put up with dickhead Dippy Danny that runs it.

    No way would anyone want to leave a half decent boat anywhere in hazel road, let alone live there. Youíll go out one day and come back to find half your boat missing !!!
