There are a number of local facilities available at Buckler’s Hard Yacht Harbour.


We are pleased to announce that we will be upgrading and refurbishing the shower and facility building this winter. However, this means the builidng will be closed from 6 November 2017 until March 2018.

Temporary toilets and showers will be provided during this period but we regret that laundry facilities will not be available.
