Thanet District Council is the owner and operator of Ramsgate’s Royal Harbour and the adjoining Port . The stunning Royal Harbour was developed in 1976. The Four Gold Anchor Award complex now offers 700 finger moorings, serviced by first class amenities and security, in a picturesque and historic harbour setting outshining many Mediterranean marinas.
Situated on the South East tip of England, the Royal Harbour Marina offers an unrivalled location with 24 hour access to our Outer Marina. Our position, just 35 miles from the French coast and with 16 miles of sheltered, but challenging waters, between the coast and the Goodwin Sands offers a great experience for boat owners.
To enhance our status as the premier marina in the South East, we are constantly improving our customer services and facilities which include a 40 tonne “Wise” boat hoist, chandlery, sail loft and slipways. In addition to these services, we also provide a fuel barge that supplies petrol and diesel 365 days a year, a Port Control centre which is manned 24 hours a day, equipped with the latest radar and communication equipment listening on VHF channel 14, CCTV security and free WI-FI access in the marina.
The comfort of our visitors is important to us and we offer free shower and toilet facilities as well as a coin operated launderette housed in a modern purpose built complex. Water and electricity is readily available and our experienced and friendly team will make sure that your welcome to our Marina is a memorable one.
We enjoy close links with the Royal Temple Yacht Club, overlooking the Royal Harbour and Marina. The club hosts a higher number of visiting yachts than any other in the country and is well known for its great hospitality. Visiting yachtsmen are warmly welcomed and may use all facilities, including accommodation and dining. In addition the club runs its own Navigation School and has an international reputation for hosting world and national championships. The hugely popular Ramsgate Regatta Week takes place each year and is a testament to the club’s experience in this field.
Our commitment to our customers, coupled with our marina’s unique setting, just minutes from the town centre and cosmopolitan waterfront, sets Ramsgate apart from other marinas, but don’t just take our word for it, sail in and see us, it will be an unforgettable visit.
