The pontoon now offers a depth of two metres below chart datum following dredging work

Following extensive dredging, Edinburgh Marina can again offer fully floating at the pontoon for most boats, with a depth of two metres below chart datum.

The marina, which is jointly owned and managed by

Forth

Corinthian Yacht Club (FCYC) and Royal Forth Yacht Club

RFYC is at Granton, which is well placed for yachtsmen visiting the Forth as a destination or in passage north or south.

It is one of the few places to stop over between Blyth and Peterhead. It is well situated for, although it is some 20 miles from the mouth of the Forth, it is a good stopover to visit Edinburgh, being less than three miles from the city centre.

For more information about visitor berthing around the British coast, see the Summer issue of PBO, in the shops now, with price and facilities listings for 248 marinas and harbours.
