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. 

Local residents who wish to lay and maintain their own moorings for their vessel are still required to pay for a mooring licence and harbour dues. Mooring equipment must meet minimum requirements before being granted a license, and gear must be inspected annually. Inspections may be conducted on all moorings within the harbour to ensure suitability. Moorings found not to be suitable may be removed to ensure the safety of other harbour users.

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