New website links up marine business services in Gosport
The marine business network, Gosport Marine Scene, has launched its new website at www.gosportmarinescene.com. A one-stop shop for yachtsmen and visiting boat owners.
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.”
