Three English Riviera harbours
Welcome aboard, Torbay Council
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 toruist 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 tawlers 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.
