Buckler’s Hard Yacht Harbour is making it easier for mooring holders and visiting sailors to get ashore with a new water taxi service for the summer.
A direct service from Gins Farm in the lower reaches of the Beaulieu River will be offered in addition to the usual water taxi service which operates from Buckler’s Hard.
The new service will provide access for those who would prefer not to launch their own dinghy and take sailors to Gins Farm – to explore the New Forest or to the facilities at Buckler’s Hard Yacht Harbour.
Harbour Master Wendy Stowe said:
“This is an invaluable summer extension to the water taxi service, which will better serve the moorings in the lower reaches of the river. Permanent mooring holders can park at Gins Farm for convenient access to their boats and visitors will have the flexibility to choose where they want to land.”
The summer service will run on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 9am – 5pm from now until September, while the standard water taxi will continue to run from the Buckler’s Hard Yacht Harbour fuel jetty seven days a week throughout the year. The taxi can be contacted via the Harbour Master’s Office on 01590 616200 or VHF channel 68 ‘Beaulieu River Taxi’.
