UPDATE (March 2015): We would like to thank everyone for their co-operation in moving boats to allow access for dredging over the winter. It is our intention to resume dredging operations next winter. Further details will follow in the autumn. All boats are free to return to their home berths now that the contractors have left site.
UPDATE (February 2015): Dredging has been underway for a fortnight in the Yacht Haven. The project is scheduled to last until the beginning of March and involves removing the high spots and deepening the inshore end of the marina to accommodate deeper drafted yachts.
The contract is being carried out by Land and Water Services in conjunction with dutch dredging company, Vandoorn.
Original news article from January 2015 announcing the start of the dredging programme:
Work has started on a major dredging programme to deepen Largs Yacht Haven and accommodate deeper drafted vessels.
The contract is being carried out by Land and Water Services Ltd and is expected to take two months until the beginning of March.
This is the first time since the Largs harbour was built in 1984 that any dredging work is taking place and is a one off contract.
Berth holders are advised to check with the haven masters regarding manoeuvring around the marina and potential relocation of berths. E-news bulletins are being mailed out regularly to all residents to keep everyone informed of progress.
