The Isle of Wight has a well established marine sector which continues to be a key driver for the local economy.

British Marine membership on the island covers an impressive range of marine-based industries including boat building and repair, marinas and havens, high tech research and development, safety and deck equipment development, manufacturing and servicing, naval architecture and a wide range of support and installation services.

The Isle of Wight is also a world famous sailing venue with the annual Round the Island Race and Cowes Week among the highlights of a very busy racing programme.
