Nautical & Marine Services information

Fort William is the location of the southern end of the Caledonian Canal allowing visiting yachts from all over the Baltic and northern Europe to access the Atlantic from the North Sea. Visiting yachts to Fort William mostly tie up in the Caledonian Canal basin at Corpach, there are also secure visitor moorings on the water front at Fort William by Lochaber Yacht Club.  The Caledonian Canal is operated by British Waterways Board.

Lochaber Yacht Club is based in Fort William and is the most active sailing club in the area. Others include Glencoe Boat Club and Ardnamurchan Sailing Association

Services for visiting yachts are limited but there are long term plans to create a small marina which would be a good thing. There are a number of yacht and boat charter businesses in Lochaber.

Other local marine services include, Corpach Boat Building Company, a Fort William marine engineering business involved in the building, repair, servicing and laying-up of all kinds of vessels. Arisaig Marine have moorings and a pontoon with other marine services for yachts. The Underwater Centre on Fort William Pier has craning facilities by arrangement, and there are a couple of crane hire guys who can lift a small vessel in or out of the loch from the West End car park. Fort William also has a few engineering shops able to fabricate in aluminium and stainless steels.
