Hayling Island Slipways

I've been looking at Hayling Island as a holiday destination. Northney Marina seems ideal to launch but is rather expensive (£27/day), any recommendations for cheaper alternatives? What are the cons? Many thanks.

I was put off that, didn't think Mrs Limecc would like trailering against a strong current and there's no pontoon. Boatlaunch says it's £8.40 a day but how much is the car and trailer parking?

I looked at Hayling Island for a launch site and didn't find anything easy to use or flexible with the tides. I went over to Itchenor instead

Great tip thanks. I found out Chichester harbour dues are just £5/week for my <5m boat with £7/day, £20/week launching fees. Very reasonable. Car and trailer parking is £10/day for two spaces (12hr day).

I don't think Sparkes have a slipway, only do haulouts.

Brockhampton Quay (Broadmarsh Slipway) looks favourite with free parking.

Launch fees are £14.50/day, harbour fees £6.80/day, not sure if this is included or extra.

Has anyone launched a bigger boat here, did it go under the height barrier? If it's a 2m restriction then it's borderline whether I'll get under.

Broadmarsh I would avoid, I think itís tidal, itís all free but a very dodgy place to leave a car and trailer - thereís quite often burnt out cars and motorbikes there.

Itchenor is great but a long way from the sea and muddy/tidal at low water.

The Ferry Boat is as mentioned but the car park can get rammed and parking is checked. I canít remember how much parking for a car and trailer is. Also loads of jet skis behind transit vans clogging the place up. Good place to launch during the week though.

Northney is where we ended up - the facilities are great and thereís a nice little bar doing lunch as well now! If you speak to them, you could arrange a berth for about the same as the launching fee. Beware low spring tides on the slipway - thereís no warning or water!

Sparkes is as youíve already said, launching by crane there is a pain and Iíve seen some dodgy use of spacers when lifting ribs. It is by the entrance to Chichester harbour though so you could launch at Northney and tie up there for a few days? It also has petrol. Decent bar/food there too.

Is this the location of the slipway? https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/...3!4d-0.9694119

Hi Limecc. I have used Northney marina in the past for day launch. Facilities were good, and not too far a run to the sea.
Last time I went to Chichester harbour, I decided to book a pontoon mooring at Chichester Marina( Premier marinas) for the week. As a trailer boater, I wasnít sure how it would be. The staff there couldnít have been more welcoming and helpful. I was given a finger pontoon near slipway, and trailer parking, and could use all facilities. Not having to launch and recover each day was a treat, giving more time on the water. The locking in/out was a bit daunting first time, in a 15 foot fibreglass boat ( Iíve used locks loads of times in narrow boats)with multi million pound boats in close quarters, but staff and other boaters were great. I canít remember exact cost, but it was an affordable option, which worked well. Obviously that marina is a long run down to the sea, but thereís plenty to explore in the harbour. Northney may do a similar short stay deal, so might be worth a phone call.

Possibly won't be an issue for a week but long term they are full with a waiting list.

I guess that may have put their prices up, we last took a berth for a couple of weeks in 2019 and the Marina was about 25% empty.
Itís good for all the various trades on the Marina anyway!
