Situated on Southampton's River Itchen, north of Shamrock Quay, Saxon Wharf is a marine service centre offering outstanding facilities for superyachts. With a 200 tonne boat hoist and heavy-duty pontoons, Saxon Wharf is the ideal location for large vessels in need of secure, quick turn-around refits, repair work or even full scale refits. Besides ample space for storage ashore, there is a wide range of marine trade tenants on the site offering a variety of professional services. Cruising opportunities include Southampton Water itself offering safe, sheltered sailing while the Hamble and Itchen Rivers are perfect for leisurely exploration. Keen racers have the legendary waters of the Solent on the doorstep, and around the Isle of Wight there are numerous bays and harbours. West of Southampton Water lie picturesque Bucklers Hard and the lively port of Lymington.

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.
