Pilotage policy for Lymington Harbour


Since 1987 LHC has assessed that there is not a requirement for a Pilotage service in Lymington Harbour. The most recent review was conducted in May 2020. The next review is scheduled for 2025.


A copy of LHC’s full Pilotage Policy can be viewed in the Marine Safety Management Plan (MSMP). To download a copy of the MSMP please click on the button below.



On request LHC will provide a Harbour Patrol to ‘guide’ vessels compatible with navigation in Lymington Harbour on the river passage.
