Cowes Harbour Shepards Marina

Shepards Marina is a Cowes Harbour Commission family-friendly facility with capacity for 130 visiting boats and 40 resident berth holders. Offering a full range of services and amenities suitable for yacht racing events and rallies, catering also to the cruising sailor and powerboater. We specialise in providing dry sailing packages for day-class yachts, RIBs, motorboats and trailered keelboats.

The pontoons and wide water access channels make life very straightforward for manoeuvring your vessel within the marina. All pontoon berths are serviced with 240v power and fresh water points, access to a holding tank pump-out facility and waste & recycling facilities. Boaters are encouraged to use the free pump-out at Shepards Marina, available year-round. The pump out berth is located on the south pontoon at Shepards. Call the marina in advance on VHF Ch80 and Berthing Master will be glad to help.

Facilities at Shepards Marina include high-quality shower and toilet facilities at no extra charge plus onsite businesses including a restaurant.
