Girvan Harbour boasts 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.

A new harbourmaster office with adjoining welfare and laundry facilities for commercial and leisure craft is now available.

The harbour is formed at the mouth of the “Water of Girvan” and comprises of several quays on the south bank protected by a pier on the south side of the entrance and a stone breakwater on the north. A timber and steel pile screen jetty protects the berths from river scour.

 Girvan is a fishing harbour providing services to fishermen working in the lower reaches of the Clyde and the North Irish Sea. The facilities include a 4-berth slipway, two of which are undercover and a dry dock.

 Girvan also supports the expanding leisure industry by providing berthing for both local yachtsmen and visitors.

Girvan Harbour offers 36 pontoon berths ranging from 7, 10 and 12 metre fingers and one pontoon berth at 17 metres, 10 of which are reserved for visiting yachts.

 Located in the heart of Girvan the harbour is within walking distance of the town which offers various local restaurants, bars, shopping facilities and a petrol station.

 The facilities include 24 hour access shower and toilet blocks, coin operated laundry as well as fresh water and electricity on the pontoons with full CCTV coverage.
