Sailors at the Beaulieu River Buckler’s Hard Yacht Harbour will be able to make the most of 11 luxury rooms with free wifi, an on-site chandlery open seven days a week and cycle hire.

The building will also include a fully-equipped laundrette to refresh clothing and linen after days or weeks afloat, as well as facilities for sailing families and disabled visitors.

Costing £4m, it is the latest in a series of investments along the Beaulieu River – close to sailing centres in Cowes, Lymington and Hamble.

Harbour master Wendy Stowe said: ‘We have listened to what our customers want and provided new facilities with a unique and natural charm.

‘The building offers five-star touches, a relaxing place to read the paper and sleek, modern services.’
