New Grimsby Sound and Old Grimsby Harbour offer superb deep water moorings for visiting yachts and cruisers.

We do not take bookings for visitors moorings; they are allocated on a first come first served basis.

If you have any special requirements or require further information, please call our Harbourmaster, Adam, on +44 (0)1720 423653 or +44 (0)7778 601237. Alternatively you can email Adam.

The fee for use of a mooring, including refuse disposal and fresh water, is £20 per night. The mooring fee is collected by Adam when he does his rounds, or can be paid at the New Inn, Ruin Beach Cafe and Island Office.

New Grimsby Slipway

We have recently completed a new slipway at New Grimsby Harbour, with significant support from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). This slipway has allowed us to greatly improve the efficiency of our maintenance facilities for our fleet of boats operated by Tresco Boat Services.
