Queen Anne's Battery

Home   Marinas   MDL Queen Annes Battery

Queen Anne’s Battery (QAB) is located in Plymouth, also known as Plymouth Ocean City, and is the historic base to many famous seafaring voyages around the world. Offering outstanding facilities for yachtsmen and motor cruisers alike, it has 235 berths for boats up to 18 metres and a visitors' area with alongside pontoon berthing.

QAB has a chandlery, brokerage and yacht charter, a provisions shop selling essential items as well as a café, bar and restaurant. It’s also home to the Royal Western Yacht Club, and has hosted the start and finish of many international short-handed yacht races, including the single-handed Transatlantic Race, the Round Britain Race and the finish of the prestigious Rolex Fastnet Race.

Boatyard facilities

QAB offers excellent boatyard facilities for boat repairs or maintenance work. There is a wide range of marine trades such as marine electronics, riggers, GRP repairs and engineers close at hand. There is a 40-ton Wise hoist, allowing boats to be launched seven days a week, and plenty of storage ashore including a secure area for small boats.

Launch and Recovery Services are available, enabling boats on trailers to be launched off the slipway throughout the whole week – great for trailer sailors.

Out and about

The marina provides an ideal departure point for those heading across to Brittany or further afield, and there is extensive cruising around Plymouth Sound.

Further west there's plenty to explore in the rivers Fowey and Fal along the rugged Cornish coast. Heading east towards Devon, visit Dartmouth, Torquay and the pretty fishing village of Brixham. The Channel Islands are a popular weekend destination for berth holders from QAB.
