We do get very busy in the school holidays, so please call us in advance.
If you have special requirements, please don't hesitate to ask our team for help or advice.
We welcome children and dogs, and there are play areas close-by to run-off cabin fever.
Rallies and groups
We welcome group bookings from clubs and class associations. Groups of 8 or more pre-booked boats get a 10% discount on overnight berthing.
We only book one or two rallies a week and not during peak season, so please call us to get your rally date booked!
In our marina garden we have a marquee with picnic-style bench seating for approximately 50 people. It's a great location for a rally barbecue or drinks party – close to the pontoons but private. We also have barbecues and can provide charcoal and cooking implements. Ask us for details.
Cowes Week and Round the Island Race
Cowes Week and Round the Island Race are the two busiest periods at East Cowes Marina. Because it is so busy, we have a different pricing structure for these events and we get booked-out very quickly.
Round the Island Race
The 2017 dates are Friday 30 June and Saturday 1 July. We offer a two-night package for participating yachts. Berths can only be booked for the two nights. Bookings will be open from 2 January 2017, and we expect to be fully-booked by mid-January. The price is £11 per metre for the two nights, including electricity.
If you don't want to book you can take your chances on the day, but priority is given to booked boats so you may have to hang around a bit.
Cowes Week is a great event in the local calendar, with lots to see and do on the water and ashore. The race dates for 2017 are 29 July to 5 August, with the Fastnet Race start on 6 August, and berths can be booked from 2nd January onwards.
Our standard Cowes Week rate is £5 per metre per night, with a special discounted rate of £4.40 per metre for competing boats 9.9m and under. All prices include electricity and all marina facilities as usual. To support the event we give priority to competing race boats.
