Published at 7:37am 16th April 2018.

Visiting boat numbers to Weymouth Harbour are slowly rising – but almost 180 berths remain unused.

Figures for April 2017 until the end of March this year show a 3.7 per cent increase in visitor nights to 5,223.

Over three years the increase has been 1 per cent.

The extra visitors brought in an additional £7,885 in fees.

The latest figures, which will be shared with the Harbour Consultative Group on Wednesday (April18), also show that while all the 29 chain and sinker moorings are fully used the inner harbour marina has 252 out of 410 berths occupied while 86 out of the 105 commercial berths are in use at the end of March.
