Shoreham Port is ideally situated on the south coast of England to offer support to vessels, owners, agents and crews using one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world. Our Marine team offer a range of maritime services to merchant and fishing vessels, as well as bed levelling, towage support and diving services.
As a Statutory Harbour Authority, Shoreham Port is responsible for the management of navigational safety within harbour limits between Hove Lagoon, the Old Toll Bridge on the River Adur and the outer Port limits.
Shoreham Port provides conservancy and a vessel information service for ships and craft using the Port, including the maintenance of navigational channels, moorings, lights and the provision of hydrographic, tidal and other information. Shoreham Port is also the Pilotage Authority within harbour limits.
Shoreham Port exists under its own unique legislation to improve and safeguard the Port for the benefit of all stakeholders, providing the highest quality of service and facilities to all port users, developing a modern port infrastructure and ensuring that stringent health and safety standards are maintained at all times. Shoreham Port is committed to full compliance with the Port Marine Safety Code. Each year the Port's Designated Person carries out an audit of Port Marine Safety Code compliance which is reported back to the Board and identifies areas for development as well as areas of best practice already in place.
