Brixham

We are about to book a holiday in Brixham for August 2020 but thought Iíd have quick look at boat storage and couldnít find any.

If the weather nice Iíd launch on arrival and take rib out water day before we leave.

Does anyone know of any?

Thank you

There's maybe some in the inner harbour but that dries out twice a day and your boat would be vulnerable. I checked prices with Brixham Marina who would have given me a berth but it wasn't cheap.

Have you considered launching at Dartmouth nearby? I would pull mine out every day and leave the trailer in the boat park which I think is free. Free to launch too.

Plenty of space in Brixham Marina, but as said the daily rate isn't cheap (£3.90/metre per day). They may give you space on the events pontoon which is cheaper than the marina pontoons but has no electricity (£2.90/metre per day). They are part of the MDL group so you could park your trailer at their yard at Galmpton, which is not far away.

There are some island pontoons in the outer harbour now, which would be cheaper still but I have no idea of costs, the harbour office would let you know.

May be worth a call to the MDL yard at Galmpton, if you don't mind launch and recovery each time you want to get out. Although it is approx 30 minutes down to the sea at 5 knots, and it does dry out so would be tide dependant.

Give them a call and see what they say.

RIBase
I can't remember what the visitor berths at Torquay were last year but don't think they were much more then £50 for the week when we went last year.

Options at Torquay and Paignton just round the corner but brixham can be limited on parking spaces so idea if you can walk to the berth.

Are you sure? We never had a problem using the multi-storey near the marina even if the car park opposite (adjacent to the slipway) was chock solid. There's always plenty of parking.

I agree. I've never had an issue with parking in the marina multi storey at Brixham, even on big weekends like Brixfest and Pirates Day.

Torquay is more limited with more chance of a long walk if you can't get into the small marina car park.

Paignton is very limited on berthing and parking.

Thanks all thatís great information.
Where would be best to store my trailer once boat in the water for the week?

Also can anyone recommend places to go with the family?

I did see Elberry cove is popular with Jetski and wakeboard etc which I enjoy so would be good to watch.

If you stay in Brixham Marina they may let you store your trailer in their yard at Galmpton, it's only 15 minutes away and is secure.
