Maritime UK Solent is the regional sector based cluster and employer representative body. The Solent has 340 miles of coastline, three islands, three peninsulas, three major international gateway ports, an emerging freeport, world-leading training institutions and a rich maritime heritage. All of this drives a powerful £5.8bn maritime economy, making the Solent the beating heart of the world's marine and maritime sector.
We ensure our array of maritime assets are harnessed and promoted, and that the area continues to be at the forefront of pioneering developments in the sector. We convene the area's key maritime stakeholders to champion the Solent as a leading maritime cluster, developing international links through representation at targeted maritime events and trade missions. Through strong ties with Maritime UK and the Solent LEP, Maritime UK Solent will help shape the future direction of the sector using our direct links to HM Government.
