I think Largs marina is pretty hard to beat for launching and recovery its just a shame its expensive is there a bit to tie up at the lifeboat slip whilst you get the trailer in the water as my wife is shit at reversing the car itself with a trailer in the mix its a recipe for a domestic

Largs Marina

Hi Breezeblock, Largs is quite expensive for one off launches i agree, but i pay a yearly fee which gives you unlimited launch and recovery and use of showers etc, 24 7, 365 day's, its a good slip all tides and good for almost anywhere on the Clyde etc, its something like £160, a year, good value i think, and no, i have no affiliation to them, i'm on my third year so far, hope this helps.

Gerry.

I think it was 11.50 each way (23 return) when I used it this summer. no car / trailer parking fees.

I'd pay the 165 quid to avoid the general that runs the Largs marina slip, spends his time trying to up sell everything and generally annoying you when trying to launch with it.

re largs lifeboat slip, unfortunately there is nowhere to tie on to during launching its at least a two man job or more if its a bit choppy. I have the season ticket at the marina and think its great value. Had no problems using it and great shelter in all wind directions and tide state.

yep I think the season ticket is the best way to go I've been using the boat a fair bit so I think it will be worthwhile when we stayed overnight in tarbert it was quite good leaving the car and trailer there and knowing it will be there in the morning
