Brixham Marina

Anybody keep their boat there? Looking at putting mine there on a Tetradock and wondered how others found it? I was surprised to find you had to pay for a parking permit for the multi storey car park and no free stays at their other marinas. Although I can understand the reasoning behind the latter.

I've put my boar there this year - found it absolutely fine & being on the water used her a lot more than having to hitch up, find, slip at right tide, recover, tow back to yard etc.... Freindly staff,& berth-holders, good security.

Only issue has been my berth being on innermost pontoon this year and on drive on dock means can't access at +/- 1 hr low springs

True the parking costs are a bit of a pain, but that would be true in most other S. Devon marinas. You can park right outside for c. 30 min to drop of kit / fuel etc - saves a lot of carrying.

If keeping here on water, not a dock, you will need to anti-foul - lots of marine growth

Agree on the marine growth, there was a lot of weed on some of the boats there.
The berth they were suggesting for me was A9 which looks like it could be one of the most affected by low tides.

Definitely will be on a drive on dock.

Have a think about the space you need to get on / off the dock....I think A9 may be close to the rocks against the promanade wall.
Drop me a pm if you want my phone no to discuss my experiences.

The proximity of the promenade wall was one of my concerns about A9 and some of the other berths along that side. I need to have another chat with the Marina tomorrow and see what other berths might be possible. A chat on the phone would be helpful if you don't mind. I'll pm you my number and perhaps we could talk tomorrow evening.

Cheers, Pete.

I was there for a while earlier this year before I moved to Plymouth Dry Stack.
As an MDL marina it is quite good, none of the 'my boat is bigger than yours' crap that you get from other marinas (i.e. MDL Torquay). Brixham struck me as being more of a working mans marina, everyone knows how much it costs to take the boat out, everyone was always very friendly.

I agree with LT on the wall side of 'A', they offered me a berth there and I pushed back. Best thing I ever did, as getting off the dry dock needs quite a bit more room than getting out from on the water.

I was on 'B' with a 5 x 3 Tetradock and loved it, easy to get on and off, although I did have to strap the stern of the boat to stop it moving forward on the dock in the large swells.
