New Pontoons for Ramsgate Port
Small boat owners embrace developments as the Port of Ramsgate unveils new pontoon system capable of berthing 30 boats.
The pontoons (walkways by which boat owners can access their vessels) were completed recently and will make mooring and accessing boats significantly easier.
This enhancement will be significantly easier for owners than the anchor mooring chains previously used.
The chains could also cause complications when dredging took place so the benefits of these new pontoons for the Port will continue far into the future.
The new pontoons were purchased through the Yacht Valley funding stream, with the existing chain removal, dredging and installation funded by Thanet District Council. These new pontoons are in the Western Gulley of the Royal Harbour Marina, between the Commercial Quay and West Pier.
