Luxury Floating Getaway in Chichester Harbour

Luxury Floating Getaway in Chichester Harbour, Emsworth

The ultimate waterside boating retreat with gorgeous views of Chichester Harbour is available here at Thornham Marina, Emsworth.

Sea Breeze & Samphire are a delightful and unique floating romantic getaway, spacious enough for two people. Staying onboard you will notice that the tide comes and goes twice a day meaning that part of the day you are afloat surrounded by water and part of the day you are surrounded by mudflats and wildlife. It’s like living on an ever-changing canvas. 

The Arks are designed to a high specification to include everything you need on the inside including bedroom, en-suite shower room and bijou kitchenette. You can eat, drink, relax at your own pace.


Inside you will find a coffee machine, powerful microwave, smeg toaster and kettle, and mini-fridge. There’s also a fantastic speaker system and TV. There really is everything you need including luxury towels, dressing gowns and toiletries. 


Upon arrival, you’ll find a breakfast hamper stocked with fresh fruit, bread, milk and some continental goodies.
