Moorings at the Harbour of Rye

There are over 300 moorings in the harbour, with over 30 for visiting mariners.

Upon arrival, if you haven’t made radio contact with the Harbour Master, go alongside the timber staging known as Admiralty Jetty, just upstream of the harbour office, which is 1.6 km (1 mile) from the sea. From here you can go ashore for berthing instructions and local information.

All the moorings dry out so that boats take the mud twice a day; on the other hand annual dues tend to be only a quarter to a third of marina prices. Hard standing can be provided if requested.

Visiting craft less than 15 metres long can generally be accommodated in the town itself, at the Strand Quay. These moorings comprise steel-piled wall with good timber fendering and access ladders fixed every 15 metres.

If your vessel is larger, you are advised to make arrangements with the Harbour Master before your arrival.

A full list of mooring operators is available from the Harbour office.
