Motor Boats

There is a variety of motor boats in the marina. The range includes 18 ft open boats through RHIBs to large luxury motorboats of over 35ft. The pontoons are set for all boats and have good cleats and space for quite beamy vessels. The cruising waters are varied from rivers and canals to the West, and to the East there are islands with secluded anchorages, harbours to visit and the open sea. There are also rallies and gatherings on the Forth to provide meeting places with other boaters.

There is easy fuelling at the end of the pier with a good pontoon to access the pump. Red diesel is available and there are forms available to defray some of the tax when fuel is used for heating. At present there is no gasoline for outboards, therefore any brought in must use approved containers and be handled carefully when transferring to outboard tanks.

Around the Marina is a good collection of businesses for making and repairing canvas works and upholstery, diesel engine repairs, outboard sales, repairs and servicing. In addition the well-stocked chandlery has a wide range of kit and clothing, maintenance fluids, polishes and repair kits.

Remember too, that you can use the weather station info and the CCTV to see the conditions before coming down to your boat thus helping to prevent you wasting time.

Lastly, there are cafés for lunches and snacks at both the Yacht Club and Karinka’s Kitchen.
