Poole Harbour Commissioners

It is the responsibility of Poole Harbour Commissioners to ensure that all the varied interests of the port operate in harmony, both for the common good and for the long-term sustainability of the whole harbour and its stakeholders.

HARBOUR DUES

Following suggestions made by yacht clubs and marinas, Poole Harbour Commissioners have reviewed short term Harbour Dues and have decided that in order to attract visitors to Poole Harbour we will be reducing daily and weekly Harbour Dues from the 1st April 2014 as follows:-

Daily - £0.52 per metre

Weekly - £2.05 per metre

Monthly and Annual Harbour Dues will remain unchanged.
