Portland Harbour was originally constructed for the Royal Navy in 1849 and remained a naval base until relatively recently when the deep water harbour was redeveloped for commercial and leisure use.  It now offers a brand new 560 berth marina with excellent facilities for berth holders and visitors alike.  Situated on Dorset's Jurassic Coast with the harbour accessible at all states of tide, it makes an ideal stopover for a south west cruise. 

Portland Harbour lies at the heart of a world class sailing destination and is home to the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy.  The waters of Portland Harbour and Weymouth Bay have been selected as the venue for the sailing events at the 2012 London Olympics so the harbour will be a hive of activity in the run up to the Games with many major events taking place here.
