Yarmouth Harbour is a Trust port and Statutory Harbour Authority, run by Yarmouth Harbour Commissioners (YHC). The harbour’s jurisdiction extends from the Causeway at Freshwater to the seaward limits as described in the 2011 Harbour Revision Order.

Yarmouth Harbour Commissioners work to manage, develop, and operate the port facilities and services responsibly for the sustainable economic growth of the harbour and prosperity of the Isle of Wight and in particular the West Wight area, whilst preserving the natural beauty, character, and charm of the surrounding environment. Yarmouth Harbour aims to be the destination of choice for yachtsmen visiting the Solent and to satisfy the needs and exceed the expectations of resident berth holders and of all other customers and stakeholders.

Yarmouth Harbour lies on the Isle of Wight’s northwest coastline and acts as a gateway to West Wight’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Strategically located at the entrance to the western Solent and providing walk-ashore access to Yarmouth town, it’s a destination that appeals to vessels based throughout the UK central south coast region and beyond. Visiting seafarers are welcome in Yarmouth Harbour all year round and the harbour has over 150 visitor moorings available daily from walk ashore and non-walk ashore pontoons to moorings buoys just outside the harbour.
