Welcome to Girvan Harbour Pontoons - 35 modern berths for a range of vessels with electricity and water supplies, secure quayside access and CCTV - funded by Scottish Enterprise, European Union European Regional Development Fund and South Ayrshire Council through the Sail West project.
£500,000 has been invested to enhance the facilities and services available to sailors from across the globe, so we hope this encourages you to stop off and spend some time with us in South Ayrshire.
Following on from the success of the funding for the new pontoons at Girvan, South Ayrshire Council and Ayrshire Roads Alliance have focused their attention on improving the Harbour Masters office. They have done this by sourcing funding from the FLAG, matched by South Ayrshire Council, for new facilities to be built to provide modern amenities for both leisure craft and commercial operators.
This facility will meet the Girvan Harbour Users Group aspirations by providing a modern office for the management of the harbour, landings and welfare for vessel owners and contribute to establishing a vibrant, sustainable and welcoming harbour for commerce, leisure and the wider community of Girvan, South Carrick and South Ayrshire
