Since 1992, we’ve been known as one of the top berthing spots in the UK, now with 260 fully-serviced berths and state-of-the-art lift and launch facilities. However, not everyone knows what we get up to beyond our Marina.
Here, we highlight five things you may not know about us.
1.      Conference Kings
Our versatile Haven Events Centre offers a unique, air-conditioned conference venue suitable for 80 to 600 delegates. Recently, we hosted the Isle of Wight Council Digital Island Conference, endorsed by Sir Richard Branson, which was attended by over 200 delegates.

2.       Charity hosts
In conjunction with our parent company, Cowes Town Waterfront Trust, a registered charity who is dedicated to supporting the local community and the charities we have here on the Island.  We host wonderful charity events, ranging from award ceremonies, charity auctions and dinners. We’re also proud to be the hosts of the annual Isle of Wight Radio Local Hero Awards, which celebrates Isle of Wight residents and their life-changing achievements.

3.      Party central
With 1,000 party-goers, Cowes Yacht Haven was simply the place to be on New Year’s Eve! The huge countdown to the New Year featured three rooms of high-energy entertainment, including DJs spinning the biggest 80s hits, a silent disco and popular Isle of Wight band, Ska’d For Life.

4.      International hub for sailing regattas
During the likes of Cowes Week and Round the Island Race, the Yacht Haven becomes an international hub for all things sailing and entertainment. For Cowes Week, our large outdoor space becomes host to a large bar, corporate and retail traders and a large stage, which has even seen a performances from the likes of Status Quo and The Hoosiers in the past. Why not consider having your regatta or rally at Cowes Yacht Haven?

5.      Trader Haven
The Yacht Haven is also a popular choice for markets and exhibitions, including the Cowes Christmas Food Show. Our location in the heart of Cowes, next to a bus and ferry route, is ideal for visitors and traders alike, and makes for busy events throughout the year.
