PLOT 3 This is a wonderful opportunity to purchase a houseboat plot on the banks of a sheltered harbour in one of the most picturesque parts of the Island.
A new owner could either bring their own boat to the plot or build new, to a height approximately 6.5 above high water (2 storey).
The plot is offered on a long lease of 99 years at £100 per annum and is one of the largest plots on The Embankment. It includes a parking space on Embankment Road. The lease allows for year round occupancy, and could also be run a business.
There is mains power and water ready to be connected, but any owner must have and be responsible for their septic tank or waste water treatment. 

BEMBRIDGE HARBOUR Bembridge Harbour is located at the East end of the Isle of Wight offering easy access to the Solent, Britain's premier yachting area. It is a large natural and well sheltered picturesque harbour and serves as a useful port of departure to leave for the Continent.
The Harbour is adjacent to two attractive villages with good restaurants, shops and facilities. There are some spectacular walks across the Downs and through the surrounding countryside.
The Harbour has two local sailing Clubs - both provide hospitality to visiting yachts. The Bembridge Redwing racing yachts are based here. Also a local sea angling club is based here.
The Harbour facilities include modern shower and toilet facilities plus all boatyard and marine engineering services.
The entrance channel is well buoyed with only the outer buoys lit with a tidal window for boats with a 2m draught of two hours either side of high water.
Resident berth-holders are in Bembridge Marina whilst visiting yachts are berthed in the Duver Marina pontoon. Further berths are available on both the Fisherman's pontoon and the Selwyn pontoon. Multi hull and bilge keel boats can anchor fore and aft on the beach to port when entering the Harbour. Duver Marina has been dredged to 2m MLWS and new pontoons have been added to create additional berthing.
In total the Harbour have in excess of 800 moorings and berths and have recently set up a new business - Bembridge Boat Storage - as a dry stack operation for the storage of ribs and sports boats. 

BEMBRIDGE Bembridge is located almost at the eastern most point of The Island. From here there are shallow beaches, which offer safe bathing and hours of time beach-combing and crabbing for the kids. The Village is somewhat detached from the rest of The Island, which adds to its charm. Noted as perhaps one of the most upmarket areas, Bembridge offers a surprisingly busy little harbour, which is always well stocked with pleasure craft and fishing boats, providing a constant flow of traffic as they "come and go" to The Solent. The harbour has individual house boats on it's southern shore and you can even get afternoon tea or B & B in some of them.

The village centre has a good range of small shops, which offer an excellent range of everyday goods. They are arranged in 2 main shopping areas, the first being the top of Lane End Road and the other being The High Street. As you would expect from an area close to the sea and yachting facilities, there are an excellent range of pubs and restaurants. Accommodation in the area, which is predominantly residential, is at coastal holiday resorts, which provide everything, to large campsites and park resorts. Each one is never very far away from a safe beach or bay and the coastal walks which wind along cliffs are a great attraction for those tourists who enjoy walking.
Bembridge has a small airport to the west of the town centre, on the way towards Sandown. From the top of Bembridge Down, you can spend the day overlooking the airport, with its small pleasure craft coming and going. Behind this you will look out to Bembridge and St. Helens with The Solent and Mainland beyond. The shipping channel is always busy and you will be able to watch container ships, coasters and liners pass by and then round The Nab Tower as they head off into The English Channel.
