General Information

  • OFFICE AND RECEPTION  

    The marina is manned 24 hours a day and maintains a listening watch on VHF Channel 80. Keep an eye on the large noticeboards in the entrance lobby which contains a wide variety of useful information from navigational warnings to taxi telephone numbers. Incoming mail may be collected from the reception and outgoing mail can be posted by the marina staff.

  • SECURITY  

    A night patrol is in operation between 1900 and 0700, seven days a week. Please help us by making sure all loose items are locked away or secured. Annual berth holders are issued with security cards which are individually numbered. Visitors are issued with an entry PIN number for operation of the access gate to the pontoons and other facilities. This is changed regularly.


    The resident berth holders car park is protected by barriers and access is only possible with a valid security card. All other cars must use the larger general car park. Do not leave your vehicle in the unloading area at the rear of the main building.

    Hafan Pwllheli follows the guidelines issued by the Yacht Harbour Association and the British Marine Federation which recommends that all marina users have a minimum third party insurance of £3,000,000. A copy of the rules and regulations is available from the reception.

    If you employ an independent contractor to work on your boat, please advise us beforehand so we can ensure all necessary procedures and insurance requirements are followed correctly.

    Berth holders should satisfy themselves that they have taken all reasonable precautions against theft or damage. Cars and trailers are parked at their owner’s risk. All trailers and cradles should be clearly marked with the boat or owner’s name while they are stored on the company’s premises.

    Use only good quality warps and protect them against chaffing within fairleads. Fenders should also be of good quality. They should be securely fastened and marked with the boat’s name. On the pontoons, the cleats are of cast quality so please do not use steel shackles to make fast to them. All halyards should be securely fastened to guard against excessive noise.

    All visiting vessels must vacate their berths by 12 noon on the day of departure. All visitor berthing to be paid in advance. Please notify the marina reception on your departure.

  • SLIPWAY   

    The marina slipway is reserved for registered commercial users only. No other vehicles or vessels are permitted on the slipway. Berth holders requiring slipway access are requested to use the public slipway located by old Harbourmaster’s office.

  • TOILETS AND SHOWERS   

    The amenity building houses the berth holders’ toilets and showers. These are open throughout the year, except when closed for daily cleaning. We would appreciate your co-operation during these short periods. Separate facilities are available for the general public and those requiring disabled facilities.

  • LAUNDERETTE   

    A launderette is available for use by berth holders and visitors throughout the year. This is located in the main amenity building. Both the washing machines and driers are coin operated. A PIN number for the door can be obtained from reception.

  • TROLLEYS   

    These are provided for the convenience of all berth holders. A £1 coin returnable deposit is required. Please return to the trolley park ready for the next berth holder. If, for whatever reason, a trolley falls into the water, please let the marina staff know immediately so we can recover it. Under no circumstances should children be allowed to ride in trolleys.

  • WATER AND ELECTRICITY   

    All the pontoons have fresh water and the majority are equipped with electric power points. Please note that due to health & safety legislation customers are required to supply their own hosepipes and electricity cables.

  • FUEL   

    A fuel bunker is located next to the lifting out dock (see marina plan). We sell unleaded petrol, diesel and a range of oils, for which payment is accepted by credit or debit card only. There must be no fuelling on the pontoons. Boats must be taken to the fuel quay. There is also a chemical toilet pump out facility. Please call on VHF channel 80 for service.

    Please note: Customers purchasing diesel are required by law to complete HM Revenue & Customs declaration form at point of sale to indicate the percentage quantities purchased for propulsion and/or domestic heating purposes.

  • FUEL QUAY OPENING HOURS   

    Fuel Quay opening hours are displayed in the marina foyer and at the Fuel Quay kiosk. Customers are advised that the fuel quay can get very busy during Bank Holiday periods and weekends during the months of July and August. We appreciate your patience during these busy periods, however if you know in advance of these times that you will be requiring fuel please consider refuelling during the quieter weekday periods. This will help to reduce congestion and lengthy delay at weekends and will allow you to enjoy being out on the water for longer.

    Please ensure that you have adequate bow and stern mooring lines ready for use when coming alongside the fuel quay. Fuel Quay staff can refuse to serve fuel to any customer whose boat is not adequately and safely moored up.

    We regret that cash or cheque payments are no longer accepted for fuel purchases. We accept most major credit and debit cards.

    Ice, Calor Gas and Camping Gaz cylinder exchanges may be purchased from the marina reception. (New gas/gaz cylinders may be purchased from the nearby Calor Gas dealer).

  • WASTE DISPOSAL   

    A large skip is provided in the compound for disposing of all rubbish. There are also special containers for depositing waste oil, oil filters, old batteries, paints and solvents and glass. Please help keep the site clean and tidy. If you see any rubbish or spillages, inform the marina staff so they can deal with it.
