Covid-19 - Important Information


We have sheltered berthing for over 200 boats – between finger berths, 600 metres of parallel pontoon and swinging moorings.

Visitor Berthing

We reserve over 50 berths for visiting vessels, and regularly accommodate in excess of 100 boats during busy festival and holiday weekends, when rafting may take place. As visible on the Pontoon Plan, visitor berths are situated in three locations:


  • A-leg (up to 12m)
  • G-leg (12 - 15m)
  • East Main Leg, which runs parallel to the shoreline in front of the sailmaker's (broad beam vessels and special requirements).


Please note the hammerheads are reserved for larger vessels over 15.5m. Visitors are asked not to berth on these unless you have made prior arrangements with the harbour office.


Reservations can only be made for vessels over 15.5m (including festival weekends). Arrangements can be made for persons on board requiring special assistance. All visitors should radio VHF Ch14, or call the Harbour Office on approach to be directed to an appropriate berth, and register at the Chandlery Reception upon arrival (seasonal opening times apply, please check here for more information)..


Visitor Rates

The current rate for visitors on the pontoons is £2.80 per metre, which includes free Wi-Fi, water and electricity, as well as 24/7 access to the toilet and shower block.


Swinging moorings are offered at a flat rate of £15 per night, regardless of the length of your vessel, for those up to 12 metres.


Honesty Policy

Visiting vessels should radio VHF CH14 or telephone the Harbour Office or Reception prior to berthing, and register at the Chandlery Reception upon arrival (seasonal opening times apply, please check here for more information).


If you arrive out of hours, please proceed to an available berth on the Visitor Pontoons, highlighted on our Harbour Plan.

We operate an Honesty Policy too, so you can refer to the rates list in the toilet & shower block and post your dues into the honesty box using the envelopes provided.


In case of any urgent enquiries or assistance, the on-call duty officer can be contacted by calling 01880 820 344 and waiting for the diversion.

Annual & Seasonal Berthing

We offer very competitive prices for annual and seasonal berths, with a number of berth holder benefits:

  • A naturally sheltered harbour, easily accessible at all states of the tide, making it a safe haven for you to berth your boat all year round.
  • Marina positioned central to the village with a wide range of amenities, including a selection of eateries, shops and galleries.
  • Berth at the heart of a popular sail-to destination with traditional charm and a vibrant social calendar.
  • 10% off purchases at the Tarbert Yacht Chandlery.
  • Free use of the community marquee and recreation area for events.
  • Free unique subscriber Wi-Fi login details. The service is provided by WiFiSPARK with content filtering and bandwidth control in place. Berth holders receive higher speeds, unlimited usage, and access to the 24/7 help desk.
  • Flexible payment options:
    10 monthly payments can be made by Direct Debit for Annual berths to spread the cost throughout the year (last payment due January; 7% admin fee). Prices
  • We appreciate that sometimes plans change or boats get sold. In these instances, refunds are at the discretion of the Harbour Master - but we will be as flexible as we can be.
  • Arriving late? Although our financial year runs from April-March, we may be able to offer you a pro-rata rate from the date of your arrival.



Vessels Ashore

During the winter months, the car park is used as a storage area for customer vessels, which are lifted out around October and back in during March. Owners requiring lift out/in must be present on the day, supply their own cradle, and only boats up to 12m can use the crane.
