About the Marina


The marina was originally an old ballast pond, built by French prisoners of war around 1783, and the huge walls that now surrounds the marina were designed to shelter the ballast barges and fend off the notorious British weather.

The marina is dredged to a depth of 2m below chart datum and there are 70 berths which can accommodate vessels up to 40 ft LOA.

Beyond the harbour walls are 100 swinging and trot moorings and the marina runs a free water taxi service to and from the the outer moorings between 9am and 9pm. A short distance from the harbour is the Torpoint town centre, which offers a supermarket, a few restaurants, some shops and a good bus link to the city centre of Plymouth via the Tamar Bridge. Alternatively, you can cross the river by chain ferry which runs between Torpoint and Devonport.
