Shamrock Quay-Large

In a sheltered location, within four kilometres of Southampton’s city centre and just one hour by train from London, Shamrock Quay is a marina steeped in history, taking its name from the J Class racing yacht Shamrock V, built on the site in 1931. In addition to its mooring facilities, the marina is a major centre for refit and boat building with many specialist trades on site, as well as a bar, restaurants, café and shop. Superyachts are accommodated at purpose-built heavy-duty pontoons. To the east lie Chichester Harbour and historic Portsmouth, where visitors can gain a fascinating insight into our naval heritage. Travel west and explore the quiet waters of Beaulieu River, Lymington and Poole Harbour or, further on, the spectacular sailing in the West Country.

Welcome to Superports!

With data on more than 600 Superyacht marinas, the Dockwalk team is pleased to present its online Superports directory.

Previously only available in print, the Superports directory contains information including contact details, facilities at the berth and local services. It also provides vital logistical information such as lat/long co-ordinates, berth numbers and sizes, prices and distances to local airports.

What's more, the whole thing works with Google mapping. Select a region or enter a location, rollover an anchor and see the name, location and photo of the marina. Click on it to load all the info on your chosen marina.

When you've chosen a marina, you'll notice a list of local services classifications in the right hand column. Right now it's fairly empty. That's where you come in.

We're building the site around our users, and we want to publish the things that are most useful to you. As you travel around the world, you can recommend the best bars, friendliest agents, most efficient electricians and the quickest taxis - to name but a few. And as the directory builds up, you can look up services that have been recommended by other Captains and Crew.

So if you've had a great night out, found the best surf shop or been impressed with an emergency repair, click on the Recommend A Local Service link and share it with crew around the world.
