                                        OPERATING GUIDE TO NORTH PIER PONTOONS

Welcome to the North Pier Pontoons, Oban (NPP).   

We are delighted you have chosen to visit NPP.  Please note that this is a non bookable  short-stay facility with a maximum stay of 3 days. We encourage you to enjoy the amenities of Oban, but please move on as soon as you are ready to allow other users to access the pontoon spaces. There are other long-stay marinas within easy reach of Oban.

By berthing your boat at these pontoons you agree to abide by the conditions outlined in the Terms of Business shown under “Berthing Charges”.
The NPP office can be contacted on 07388 808061 and on VHF Ch 12.

The office is manned 7 days a week between 1st Apr – 30 Sept from 0800 – 2000.  During the winter months the office will be open 0800-1600, Monday to Friday only.  The NPP office is situated on the ground floor of the Harbour Office building.

The finger pontoons have 39 fully serviced berths for boats up to 12m in length, however at busy times, and in suitable weather conditions, this can be expanded by rafting up boats and using the breakwater. The breakwater pontoons can accommodate boats of up to 30m in length/ 127GT depending on their specifications.  Access to the pontoons is through a secure gate.
The NPP facility can be subject to strong winds and waves especially from the West and South West. In the first year of operating in 2017 adverse weather conditions were well contained by the attenuating breakwater, however skippers must act responsibly and, if necessary, remove their boat from the facility in the event of adverse conditions.
The Harbour Master has the authority to close the NPP facility and request all vessels find alternative berths in severe weather conditions.

Pontoons and walkways can be slippery when wet or in cold weather so please take care when accessing these facilities.




Please be in touch with any questions about berthing charges or visitor facilities.
