Battle Harbour B-25
The new wharf project started in 2018 was miraculously completed in one season. A new “U”-shaped wharf is now in place providing an excellent lee in its southerly “basin”, as well as dockage on the northerly el in normal summer weather. We are advised that work on the older southerly wharf will be completed by summer 2020, so all wharf infrastructure will be ready for full use this coming season. Be assured, Battle Harbour is anxious to welcome yachts back to this interesting port.
