Drivers Wharf has to be worth a look - http://www.driverswharf.com
Secure, reasonable prices, petrol station round the corner, friendly staff. No slipway on site (they crane in), but there is a public slip up the road.

That's no way to talk about our training room!

The scrapyard comment I guess is accurate but that yard also affects Shamrock Quay, Kemps Quay and Saxon Wharf. The Itchen is a commercial river still so you might want a Boat cover! if you go down river then its pretty much all marina spaces and no dry storage.

Drivers has a good feel about it and it's nearly all powerboating! and even has a powerboat racer on the staff
