A museum for the “Mary Rose”
Yarmouth has 100,000 visitors by boat each year, many from the UK South Coast, but also the Channel Islands, France, Belgium, Holland, Germany and Scandinavia. The Yarmouth Harbour Commissioners have jurisdiction over the length of the river Yar and the waters of the Solent for about one-and-a-half kilometres (one mile) to the west of the harbour entrance and for about one kilometre (half a mile) out from the shore. Yarmouth harbour provides a berth for the RNLI lifeboat and permanent moorings to 250 Islander-owned yachts and commercial vessels including 11 fishing boats.
