Visiting boats to Portavadie

At team Portavadie, we're really looking forward to a great season. Our new dynamic pricing and introductory offers have been really popular and we are excited to welcome 40 new annual berth holders to the marina.

Those that have visited us before would have had the luxury to choose their own berth, whether this was on our dedicated visitors pontoon (S dock) or indeed in the main marina network on A, B, or C docks. With the increase in permanent berths holders this is unfortunately a thing of the past and we recommend contacting us before arrival for a slip assignment.
We can be contacted on VHF Channel 80, by phone on 01700 811075, or by email on

  • Our dedicated visitors berths are located on S dock, please remember that the 7 fingers up towards the linkspan end of S are also visitors berths. There is no long term berthing on S dock. On busy days it may be necessary to raft up vessels alongside S dock.
  • Please note the Reserved signs on empty slips. In order for berth holders and pre-booked guests to have unhindered access to their berth, please do not take these slips unless the marina staff have assigned it to you. If you do occupy a reserved slip, without having it assigned to you, please expect to be asked to move.
    It is our intention to keep A and B Hammerheads free for our larger visitors. Boats smaller than 45ft may be asked to move to a more suitable berth, to allow the larger boats to dock.
  • In settled weather, additional berthing can be had on our concrete wave attenuating pontoons near the entrance. Please note that if the weather is due to deteriorate, the primary function of these pontoons is to break and waves, or swell that may enter the marina.

Wishing everyone a great sailing season and looking forward to seeing our regular visitors and some new faces very soon!
