Update 2023-Entry Depths
Written by Bryant | 26th Sep 2023
2023 ...Looks like the entrance is silting again, and they recommend:

Draughts of 1.8m or more – 2 hours either side of HW
Draughts of under 1.8m – 3 hours either side of the tide

I reviewed these notes in July 2022. They now have a box for visitors packs at the top of the ramp to the visitors berths as well as at the Steamboat and their website is one of the easiest to navigate that I have come across. Price has gone up for a single night stop but drops to the old £20 a night after that.

I reviewed these notes in May 2021. They seem to be on top of the dredging here now although they are not allowed to dredge during the summer months (due to holiday makers on the beaches) Prices remain the same
New Fingers 2018
Written by Don Thomson | 31st May 2018
It looks as though they have installed new fingers on the Visitors berths in the East Basin - there is shore power to them as well

The big news here is the new dredging arrangements; with luck this summer you won't be going aground here. They've replaced the toilet key with a coded lock and there is now Wifi.

Lossiemouth Marina has an undercover workshop facility with three separate spacious bays - electricity, flood lights, water and heating available. Our 25 ton sublift can transport vessels from the water to the workshop or onto the hard for repairs. Masts can also be easily removed or refitted with our Palfinger crane. Please telephone the marina office for more information or for details on package deals.
