Mylor Yacht Harbour Ltd

The marina and moorings areas are home to over 370 boats of various sizes and shapes from small tenders to 50 foot motor boats and yachts. During the summer months there are visitors to the marina increasing the numbers of boats by about 20%. The pontoons are held in place using an underwater anchoring system so there are no obvious piles, making it aesthetically pleasing. The pontoons are made out of wood in the inner pontoons and concrete on the outer arms to act as a slight breakwater.

The last remaining oyster fishing fleet that uses only sail uses Mylor as its base from October to March, setting sail in the early mornings of the winter to dredge for oysters in the Carrick Roads. The local boats, some of which are nearly 100 years old, have been used the same way for decades. During the summer months the heavy hulled Falmouth working boats are raced in the Carrick Roads and Falmouth Bay creating an amazing site.

There is a long valley that runs up behind the main harbour area which is used for boat storage throughout the year especially during the winter months where there can be over 450 boats ashore.
