Welcome aboard, St Mary’s Harbour

St Mary’s Harbour is a private harbour run by the Duchy of Cornwall. Located 35 miles off the south western tip of Cornwall, St Mary’s is one of the five populated islands in an archipelago of over 140 islands and rocky outcrops.

Commercial and leisure vessels

As the traffic hub of the Isles of Scilly, the harbour caters for around 98% of all the freight brought to the Islands. The harbour team provide pilotage services in these notoriously tricky waters.

Harbour users also include fishing vessels, local boat owners, inter island passenger launches and of course the ships used for the Island’s mainland connections. They also average around 2,500 visiting yacht nights and are the biggest cruise ship calling port in the South West.

Harbour Assist chosen after careful scoping

Harbour Master Dale Clark chose Harbour Assist after a careful consultation and scoping process. It provides his dynamic team with a system which will help improve operations and communications within the harbour and with its users, together with the ability for visiting yachts to pay by card out on the water and even online.

St Mary’s Harbour Master Dale Clark said “I’m delighted that we have taken the step to introduce Harbour Assist to our port operations. Whilst we are a small harbour we are fairly unique in that we cater for all types of maritime business making us one of the busiest harbours in the South West”.

“Harbour Assist will allow us to become much more efficient in how we operate and allow us to communicate better with our customers”
