New Harbour Master for Southampton

A new Harbour Master is at the helm at the Port of Southampton, with responsibility for one of the busiest waterways in the world.
Captain Phil Buckley assumed responsibility on Jan 3, when Captain Martin Phipps retired after 28 years at the port and seven years as Harbour Master.

The Harbour Master is responsible for the safe navigation of all vessels using the port and operating across the wider Solent – last year 160,000 vessel movements, including some of the largest ships in the world, were recorded excluding leisure craft.
