Cowes Harbour can accommodate most vessels, with the limitation generally being your draught, however, berths of up to 3m below chart datum can be found on the fairway side of the marina pontoons.
If you wish to stay outside of a marina there are various cheaper alternatives, from swinging moorings in Cowes Roads with terrific views of the Solent, pontoons berths in the Whitegates area of the Medina Estuary, to peaceful moorings further up the River Medina conveniently close to to the Folly Inn.
