Pontoon Berths

Visitor Pontoon Berths
Our new pontoon was installed in October 2011 and provides spacious accommodation for up to 8 visiting craft.

All the fingers are 12 metres long, each bay is 12 metres wide and the landing stage is 14.5 metres long.

The berths are very easy to manoeuvre into, even for larger and beamier boats and most are facing into the prevailing winds.

The pontoon has plenty of depth, normally a minimum of 3 metres but the outer berths are in a minimum of 10 metres. If you need any advice on depths please ask.

Fresh water, by hose, and electric are available on the pontoon. The pontoon is fully insured.

Berths can be reserved, if preferred, by phone (max. 24 hours in advance).

Visitor Moorings in the Bay
We have 4 Commercial Swinging Moorings in the bay which have red buoys with orange pickups and are marked ‘Jetty’ and ‘Visitor’. These are suitable for boats up to 15 tons and 15 metres in length. All the moorings are in deep water (minimum 10 metres).

The moorings are well maintained, inspected annually and fully insured.

Tenders can now be left on the pontoon - please use the designated area on the pontoon plan.

The entrance to the bay is wide and simple to navigate - just keep to the East of the cardinal marker. There is deep water in most of the bay.

re-fuelling with Red Diesel

Red Diesel is available at competitive rates and can be supplied from the pontoon, the stone jetty or in cans. Re-fuelling on the pontoon will normally be alongside the bridge landing stage (see the photo of a yacht re-fuelling below) but occasionally the main walkway may be used for large boats. Please note that dispensing fuel from the main walkway is dependent on the state of the tide and fuel filler positioning.

We can supply to Commercial Customers at the Rebated Duty Rate and also for Private & Pleasure Craft on a 60/40 split. We have been advised that our diesel contains no bio-diesel.

Our capacity was doubled in June 2013 with the installation of a second diesel tank. This is now allowing us to supply larger quantities. To enable ease of payment we now accept cards.
