The Complete List of Marinas and Moorings in Devon (+ VHF call signs)

A Complete List of Devon Marinas, Devon Harbours, and Moorings in Devon

The coastline of Devon is one of the most popular parts of the UK (if not Europe) for the delights of summer cruising. The sea is in the blood of the people of Devon’s coastal towns and villages, so mariners of any kind should expect a warm welcome ashore. 

Book your berth to enjoy all the drama of the Dartmouth Regatta Sailing Week

Planning your cruise is essential because the proportion of visitor berths and moorings is small and demand rockets for world-class races and regattas like:

  • Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta
  • Salcombe Town Regatta
  • Torbay Royal Regatta 
  • The Round Lundy Race
  • SailGP in Plymouth
  • Brixham Heritage Sailing Regatta

Here is a list of all the publicly available Marinas, moorings and harbours in Devon. Complete with VHF call signs that may come in handy if your mobile signal is sketchy.  If you need to top up on supplies, check out my article:
