Dear Customer

I hope that you all are keeping safe as we face what is, without doubt, a global crisis that is unprecedented in modern times.

We have kept the Port open and fully functioning as long as possible, and we would prefer to be able to continue to operate normally. However we do not live in normal times at present, and after careful assessment of all our options,  we feel that we must do the right thing for the greater good.

In order to protect Customers, Staff and Suppliers and help limit the deadly spread of the COVID-19 virus, and following the Prime Minister’s speech on Monday evening, we have decided to temporarily close the Port to the General Public and ask Boat Owners to keep away as well.  We Appreciate those boat owners with boats afloat may wish to periodically check on them but please keep this brief and to a minimum.

Note we have : Cancelled all Launches/Lifts up to the 20th April 2020

We have not taken such a decision lightly, but we do believe that in this emergency situation, we need to do our bit as individuals, as a company and a community to protect each other.

As this is a rapidly changing situation, we don’t know for how long the Port will be operating with limited access and operations. However, we will continue to follow the advice of our Governments as well as Public Health Wales. Please keep in touch for updates or check out our Website at

In the meantime, take care of yourselves, your loved ones, your colleagues and your communities, and we look forward to seeing you all when the time is right.

We remain available to help on the following Numbers:-
