Haslar Marina expansion

Plans approved

Gosport Borough Council has approved plans to redevelop Haslar Marina.

The work will include a new powerboat centre, a new club house, greater wave protection and additional deep water berths for the growing market of 16m-18m boats.

A new base for the British ocean racing team, Alex Thomson Racing, will be built, and the team will be taking delivery of a new IMOCA 60 Hugo Boss later this year for the 2020 Vendee Globe campaign.

The redevelopment of Haslar will be carried out in phases to try and reduce the impact on berth holders and residents.

The iconic green lightship, Mary Mouse 2, will remain at the marina. The restaurant bar has recently been refurbished.

Haslar Marina was built in 1993 and currently has 910 berths for boats up to 40m.
