Update April 2022
Written by Don Thomson 3 | 8th Apr 2022
I reviewed these notes in April 2022. Prices are up to date and the only changes were to the Marina - both the harbour and Yacht Club have been maintained at last year's prices. Otherwise little has changed at the moment although there are massive changes being planned for the expansion of the Marina, the installation of another marina on the West side along with land reclamation between the fish dock and Oxen Cove slip.

I reviewed these notes in March 2021. Thanks to Fred Farmer for his notes below, most of which is now included in the text. Plans to improve Brixham's waterfront are still ongoing otherwise much is still the same (apart from prices)
Brixham Yacht Club Pontoons
Written by Fred Farmer | 24th Dec 2020
When entering Brixham Harbour you have three berthing options. Brixham Marina run by MDL on channel 80, Brixham Town Pontoon run by the Harbour Authority on channel 14 and the Brixham Yacht Club pontoons, the first two being the more expensive options. The Yacht Club pontoons are located just below the Yacht Club on your Starboard hand side just short of the main fishing harbour. Berthing is alongside the pontoons principally on a first come first served basis, rafting up is acceptable, £20 per night payable either online at brixhamyachtclub.com or by phone 01803853332. You will need to inflate your dinghy to cross the 20mt stretch of water to the Yacht Club steps. Once there the friendly and welcoming Club offer shower facilities, a well stocked bar as well as an excellent restaurant offering wonderful views back across Lyme Bay. Brixham is a wonderful cruising destination with character. Please note however that the harbour is open to the North so maybe uncomfortable in a strong North to Easterly breeze.

The Marina has increased its prices but the harbour pontoons remain the same as they were two years ago. The yacht club is now charging a fixed fee £15 per boat. The mobile number for the bosun is currently not working

Notes on Brixham Marina
Written by tallmark | 29th Aug 2016
Brixham marina has good modern facilities. It even had a guest lounge [July 2016] - perhaps crew joining the boat could wait here? Please note that access to pontoon G is split: half of it from north of pontoons H&I and the other half from south of them

I thoroughly recommend "The Lusty Wench" restaurant on the NW side of the inner harbour.
