A one-stop shop for yachtsmen and visiting boat owners

The marine business

network, Gosport Marine Scene, has launched its new website at

www.gosportmarinescene.com

The aim is to provide yachtsmen, visiting boat owners and businesses with a one-click route to all

the facilities and information they need in the marine town of

Gosport.

Using the latest in responsive

design, the site can be accessed on mobiles, tablets and laptops with full

definition and detail.

The site offers practical information, from a live tidal and meteorology feed, repair

and emergency services, to information about the port authority regulations for

navigating the harbour entrance.

The berthing and marina contacts are listed,

along with the huge diversity of specialist services on the sheltered western

shore of Portsmouth Harbour.

With the boat taken care

of it’s the crew’s turn. Whether they are looking for a good meal after a long

crossing, a well-earned drink, a haircut or a bed that doesn’t roll, the

website and its links show where to find them.

Gosport’s

sheltered location directly adjacent to the Solent makes it excellent as a

permanent base or a jumping-off point for longer voyages and races.

The town boasts more

than 2,400 berths and moorings and a 24-mile waterfront ringed with marinas,

slips, yards, riggers and sailmakers.

Plus a wide range of

chain and independent shops, plus

four town centre supermarkets a few hundred metres from the waterfront.

‘A valuable tool’

Ben Lippiett of Haslar

Marina, said: ‘Visiting yachtsmen

to Gosport now have a valuable tool at their fingertips whether they need an

overnight stop at one of our town’s marinas, or a more lengthy stay.

‘They can

find excellent dining in our waterfront restaurants and unique fast-food

outlets and our wealth of naval history at the Submarine Museum and Explosion

Museum of Naval Firepower.

‘Just across the water in Portsmouth are transport

links to London, as well as shopping for brands and exotic nightlife in

Gunwharf Quays.’
