Sounds promising!

Update 17th May 2013 from Adrian

It does have water, electricity, and you can re-fuel but after that there is nothing to recommend it. Porta cabin loos & showers, no restaurant's etc , no shops, and a mile walk into town. If you need an all tide stopover then fine but otherwise not worth it.

Note: there is no mention of the shuttle bus – perhaps peak season only?

Update 2nd August 2012 from Stuart

We spent 4 nights in Roscoff, one in the marina and 3 on the quay in the proper port, it had electricity there! plus it is in the middle of the town.  The new marina is excellent and will be better when it is all up and running. They say that the electricity will be up all connected by the 15 August. When we left there was water on all the pontoons. The showers are good even though just portacabins they are free. we took advantage of this option even though we were in town. There is a free shuttle bus from the marina to Roscoff but it is only a 15 minute walk.  The other advantage of staying against the quay was it cost €4 a night.

Update 3rd July 2012 from Bill Bowen

Now open for boats 24 hour access. Brand new pontoons, Main walkway nice and wide. finger pontoons good length and stable. Call up on VHF 9 Staff come out in Rib and direct you to a berth. Fairly good English spoken. Staff still operating up to 9 pm. As at July 3rd No Electric or Water on pontoons but work in progress, should be finished in next week or two. For water you will need a push in connector similar to a garden hose fitting.

Fuel not yet available. Hard standing areas being built, will be impressive. Will have 50 T lift. 

Office in temporary hut, soon will be purpose built. Use same entrance as for Ferry and fishing boats so be aware of their movements. Marina separate from main Harbour to south. Roscoff town centre a good 15 min walk.

Will be very popular with UK boats, Prices for annual mooring much cheaper than UK and adjacent to Main Plymouth and Ireland Ferry as well as Train Station. For sailing from Guernsey very easy. No gate required for entry like Trebeurden.

The marina is to south of main ferry harbour. The main harbour entrance for ferry and private yachts is fairly wide and the marina entrance is well separated to the south.

Roscoff Marina opened a few days ago, we are presently berthed inside.
Please be aware there is

  • No fuel
  • No water
  • No electricity

Also it is a building site, muddy, noisy and portaloo toilets/showers.
On the positive side they are only charging half price - 13 euros for a 10m boat.
