Facilities: Falmouth

Our Falmouth port boasts one of the world’s largest natural deep-water harbours. Falmouth is the largest ship-repair complex in the UK with 3 large graving docks and extensive alongside deepwater berthing providing capacity for vessels up to 100,000 tonnes.

Offering onsite engineering, electrical, paint and fabrication workshops and links to all other specialist contractors and OEMs, these are integrated to provide a complete range of marine repair services to the customer.

As well as extensive workshop facilities across all disciplines Falmouth offers bunkering facilities, the ability to dock without gas-freeing, in-water surveys and propeller polishing.

Falmouth is a busy working port handling over 100,000T of product annually and with over 30 firms located in the docks providing a full range of services including towage, ship’s agency, area port health, diving services, local surveyors and tank washing.

Falmouth is used by 40,000+ cruise passengers annually who see Falmouth as the gateway to Cornwall. Partnerships Falmouth has many long-term shiprepair partners, including P&O, Grimaldi, Condor, Gardline, Euroships, Stena UK and the Ministry of Defence.
