All Cowes Harbour Commission (CHC) annual moorings benefit from a central Solent location and a harbour water taxi service.
The Cowes Harbour Moorings team, operating from Shepards Wharf Marina, carries out safety and security checks 365 days a year.
CHC issues over 650 annual licences, covering a variety of mooring options. These include pontoons, pile moorings, and swinging moorings. Generally, boats of up to 70ft can be accommodated with your draught often being the limiting factor.
CHC operates a waiting list for the majority of mooring with approximately 10% reallocated at the beginning of each season.
All of the mooring options are covered in depth in this section with our Mooring Location Chart
