Port Services


We take pride in having professional sailors welcoming the tall ships.

The Port of Mariehamn is located on the southern part of Åland. It is one of Finland’s three largest ports for passenger vessels.

In the Port of Mariehamn double berthing will be necessary. Traditionally the tall ships where moored like this during their summer stop overs in the 1920’s and 1930’s.

When planning the mooring plan, we will consider factors such as: length, draught and freeboard, special requests from ship captains, rig construction, requests on daysailing, open deck and deck events. We will mix nationalities within the fleet and also consider the Parade of sail and the number of pilots, within the area.

If there is a need to moor ships off the Möckelö shoreline, there will of course be a shuttle boat service available. It will also be possible to moor in the East Harbour, just a kilometres short walk from the West Harbour through the pedestrian friendly town centre.
