The Masterplan will enhance infrastructure within the existing harbour area, deepening Faithlie Harbour and improving access to the Fishmarket, as well as widening the entrance to Balaclava Harbour and enhancing the ship lift facility. The strategic proposal also includes an extension to the existing breakwater, the construction of a new Deepwater basin and an additional dry dock capable of handling vessels up to 100 m length and 25 m beam.

A major investment, these ambitious proposals will have a profound and transformational impact on the harbour itself, the community and the wider region.
