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.
