New Grimsby Sound and Old Grimsby Harbour offer superb deep water moorings for visiting yachts and cruisers.
The fee for using a mooring, including refuse disposal and fresh water, is £30 per night. Moorings are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis and cannot be pre-booked. The mooring fee must be paid at The New Inn, The Ruin Beach Café or the Island Office on Tresco, or to the harbour team on the water.
Drinking water, waste disposal and toilets are available at New Grimsby Quay, and a shower is available at the Tresco Cottage Department, near the Island Office. Diesel and petrol is not available for purchase on Tresco but is available at St Mary's Quay.
Terms and Conditions
Customers use our moorings at their own risk. We shall not be liable for any loss or damage caused by events or circumstances beyond our reasonable control (such as severe weather conditions or the actions of third parties not employed by us); this applies to loss or damage to vessels, equipment or other property. A local weather forecast is available from St Mary's Harbour.
Tresco moorings can accommodate vessels up to 45 feet (13.7m) in length. Two larger buoys are located at the north end of the New Grimsby channel which can accommodate vessels up to 55 feet (16.7m), but please contact the harbour team upon arrival prior to use. No rafting of vessels is permitted. No vessel must have a draught greater than 2.4m.
There is no anchorage within 100 metres of any Tresco or Bryher quay, and no drying out on any Tresco beaches without prior permission. Wash is to be expected in the vicinity of quays and no responsibility will be taken for any loss or damage caused in these areas.
Please separate your waste into food waste, glass, metal, paper and cardboard, and other waste. Separated waste should be disposed of in the dedicated facilities on New Grimsby Quay. Visiting yachts using Tresco's moorings should dispose of their waste using the dedicated facilities on Tresco Island only.
