Three English Riviera harbours
Welcome aboard, Tor Bay Harbour
Three harbours on the ‘English Riviera’ of Tor Bay in Devon have chosen Harbour Assist to manage moorings and harbour fees.
The enclosed harbours of Brixham, Paignton and Torquay are managed by Tor Bay Harbour Authority, part of Torbay Council.
Although Tor Bay is a busy tourist destination, it is also well used by merchant ships, naval vessels, tugs and towed barges and other vessels. This makes the Bay very much a ‘working harbour’.
Brixham Harbour is the largest fishing harbour in England and Wales by value of catch, and Brixham is also home to a fleet of restored heritage sailing trawlers and a replica of the Golden Hind.
Torquay and Paignton harbours are smaller, catering mainly to local boats, crabbing vessels and day-trippers. Torquay and Brixham also have significant leisure marinas operated by MDL.
- Torquay Harbour has 370+ pontoon berths in the Town Dock and Inner Harbour.
- Brixham Harbour has 50+ moorings, an alongside visitor pontoon and berths for 30 commercial fishing vessels.
- Paignton Harbour has around 70 moorings plus part-tide alongside berths.
