Hamble Yacht Services

Whether you want to simply dry stack your RIB at one of the best locations in the UK, or bring your fleet of round the world race yachts in for a complete refit, then we’re here for you and we want to help.

From Humble Beginnings

Hamble Yacht Services has been the number one boat yard facility on the Hamble River for coming up to 40 years.

What began as a small workshop has developed into a full service boat yard at a prime location in the heart of the UK’s boating hotspot. Our established Port Hamble location offers our customers a first class service on the Hamble River.

Expert Team

Our expert and professional team of riggers, boat builders, joiners, engineers, electricians, painters and workshop staff operate from fully equipped sites along with a busy and friendly team of crane and lift operators of all the associated boat movements, launches, dry storage and scrubbing – which happens every day of the year!

Hamble Yacht Services came under new ownership in February 2015 and a number of new schemes to improve the yard have been completed including new cladding to tenant offices, new road surfacing and much improved parking areas. The yard also boasts a state of the art CCTV and car number plate recognition system and is secure 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

We look forward to offering you the same professional service that has given our yard its outstanding reputation, and allowed us to grow into the truly complete facility that we are today.

“I am writing to express my appreciation in the way that HYS have looked after me, as a customer, during the last few weeks. I have found everyone to be open and willing to help in providing a solution to the problems with the boat… particularly on the busiest Friday of the season!”

Stuart Childerley

“Over the years, the boatyard has executed repairs to the hull and rigging with completely satisfactory results. We have returned to HYS many times, always to a warm welcome from a competent group of professionals.”

Larry Huntington, Snow Leopard – Ker 50

“May I just say, Jim and the crane lads do a good job and deliver a service in a very pleasant and helpful manor, and I sincerely love being located at HYS Port Hamble.”

Marcus Stone, J80 – Rose & Thistle

Steven ‘Taffy’ Dodd, Island Fling – Swan 82

“After this summer’s Transatlantic Race and before the start of the Rolex Fastnet Race, Snow Lion required some maintenance work and a haul-out. HYS met all of our needs, and the staff were very helpful to our crew and me in organising various services in Hamble and Southampton.”

Larry Huntington, Snow Leopard – Ker 50

“I just wanted to say how helpful everyone was on Monday and to express my thanks.”
