The harbour owns and maintain a number of seasonal visitor moorings located in the mouth of the Cattewater, with access ashore to the Mountbatten peninsular or the city centre.

A short stay dinghy pontoon is available at the Barbican for visitor mooring customers, further information here.

Visitor moorings for vessels upon to 10 tonnes, and 40ft, are available at the following rates:

  • £24.00 per night.
  • £130 per week (7 nights).

Larger ‘Tall Ship’ moorings are also available by prior arrangement with the harbour office, price on request.

Please phone +44(0)1752 665934 to book your mooring prior to your passage to Plymouth to ensure availability.

For customers requiring a long-term mooring solution in Plymouth, our maintained trot moorings provide just that. Moorings are available as follows:

  • Plym Trot – <1m draft, 27’LOA
  • Oreston Inner – <30’LOA
  • Oreston Outer – <32’LOA, plus 7 larger moorings up to 36’LOA
  • Cocklebank – <36’ LOA

The mooring season runs from 1st April every year. Please contact us to discuss your options.

Self maintained moorings can be laid within the harbour after permission has been sought from the harbour master by means of a self maintained mooring license, chargeable annually. 

Mooring equipment must meet minimum requirements before a license is granted, and equipment inspections must occur annually. Harbour staff, on behalf of the harbour master, may conduct ‘spot inspections’ on self maintained moorings to ensure they comply with license conditions.

We can assist in your mooring maintenance using our Work Barge and experienced crews. Please contact the harbour office to discuss your requirements.

All moorings within Cattewater Harbour Limits are subject to our Moorings Policy, available here.
