Mooring/pen availability and contacts
Boat pens are available at Department of Transports metropolitan and regional boating facilities providing a secure, convenient option to easily access your favourite boating destination.
The Department of Transport has vacant pens available in both metropolitan areas such as Fremantle and Two Rocks Marina, as well as regional areas including the Mid-West, Southwest and Great Southern.
Pens range in size from 8 to 25 metres. Having your own pen will provide you with a safe and convenient facility for your boat with secure access giving you more time on the water.
For information relating to fees and charges applying to pens, please refer to the Schedule of Maritime facilities fees and charges (2016/2017).
The Department of Transport manages boat harbours and other maritime facilities for small craft around the State. Vessel accommodation offered at each maritime facility is different, and may include pens, swing or pile moorings, or a mix of both. There will usually be different size pens or moorings available at each facility, catering for vessels from 6 metres upwards.
