Fairlie Quay Marina


Location 55’46.00N x 04’52.00W

Fairlie Quay Marina combines the features of a full-service marina with a major boatbuilding & maintenance hub and the largest indoor boat storage facility on the Clyde and, with a boating tradition reaching back to 1807, is now regarded as Scotland’s premier boat storage facility.

Situated on the Firth of Clyde close to the tourist town of Largs in North Ayrshire, Fairlie Quay is the perfect gateway to the West Coast of Scotland and is only a short journey time of 30 minutes from Glasgow with direct road, rail and air links to the rest of the UK.

As part of Scotland’s leading marina group, Holt Leisure, we can draw on over 50 years of experience at the forefront of Scottish sailing and, together with our friendly team of staff, we can provide you and your boat with everything you need to enjoy the magnificent West Coast of Scotland.


6,000 square metres of indoor boat storage with power & water service, make Fairlie Quay the largest facility on the Clyde and one of the largest in the UK.

Combined with our 80-ton boat hoist, 30-ton crane & 12-ton boat shifter, this make us the preferred destination for owners wishing to store their boats away from the vagaries of the Scottish weather or for those wishing to embark upon repairs or refits projects.

We also offer over 7,000 square metres of outside storage on our concrete apron, again with power & water available, which is regarded as the preferred choice for owners compared to the gravel hard standing available for boat storage.

Fairlie Quay Marina’s water side facilities include 24 Secure Moorings that are newly installed and can cater for boats up to 15 tons or, at the opposite end of the scale, our Deep-Water Pier can accommodate boats & ships up to 160m in length with the ability to arrange full shore handling facilities for vessels & crews.

Fairlie Quay Marina can offer a home to all types of vessel – from a dayboat to a superyacht or even the occasional cruise liner!

At Fairlie Quay Marina we take security very seriously so that our customers can relax in the knowledge their boat is in good hands. 24-hour security, CCTV coverage and electronic security gate access, all add up to a safe and secure place to keep your vessel.

Elsewhere on site our facilities include customers’ bathrooms & showers and our Chandlery which is stocked with a wide range of everything you could want for your boat – from ropes and shackles to anti fouling and fenders or even a new cooker or tender. We operate a click & collect service via email for advance orders and our expert staff can usually source any part or fitting for your vessel.


Our onsite specialists and contractors cover all aspects of marine work including engineers both marine and electrical, riggers, GRP repairs, upholstery & canopies, boat builders, sail makers, painting and valeting. We can also enlist further companies to assist in your repairs or projects from our sister marina at Kip.
