The picture above is of the relatively new 'Haven Harbour' which was opened in 2003 for the berthing of smaller vessels, this replaced a relatively short lived harbour which was destroyed by the sea in the 1860's.
The haven has been expanded into a New England style working port and marina for all sizes of vessel and is currently the only stop off point South of Cowes and Yarmouth for round-island sailing.
Catmaran manufacturer Cheetah Marine have workshops close to the harbour and some of their vessels can be seen moored up.
The actual port building on the pier was also quite busy selling seafood 'straight from the boat'.
