Vessel Registration, Harbour Dues and Other Payments

Please select from the three options below below:

Harbour dues must be paid  for all craft using the harbour; including craft visiting from sea or launching from within the harbour even if going directly out to sea. If visiting vessels are arriving to a Littlehampton Harbour Board visitor mooring, dues can be settled at the office after arrival when paying mooring fees. In all other cases, harbour dues must be paid in advance of entering or launching. Daily harbour dues are currently £12.57 for pleasure craft under 11m long and £15.38 for pleasure craft of 11m and over. They can be paid online via PayPal below, at the Harbour Office or by telephone on 01903 721 215. Multiple consecutive or non-consecutive days can be purchased at once but please check that the monthly or annual rate are not more effective for you. Jet Skis / PWCs: There are specific additional local restrictions for Jet Skis and other Personal Water Craft (PWC). If you hold a Littlehampton Harbour PWC User Permit, you may pay daily launch fees below. If you do not have a PWC User permit, you must get a permit before using any harbour slipway or (if visiting from sea) going up-river from the A259 (or face prosecution). Click here for further information
