More notes about the marina

The Italian Lega Navale, Grado in the town of Grado on the lagoon of the same name operates 70 berths on five pontoons immediately E of the neighbouring basin of Porto San Vito and a further 59 in a small basin right in the heart of Grado town, accessed via a 500 metre long canal. Maximum length accommodated is 15 metres.


Try calling Lega Navale, Grado on VHF channel 16. You may have better luck if you telephone or email in advance for berthing information and reservations.


There is a red fairway buoy just under two miles offshore at the entrance to the Grado lagoon/wiki/Lega_Navale,_Grado#Grado_lagoonWorld icon.png Grado lagoon [[Lega Navale, Grado#Grado lagoon|Grado lagoon]] 45°40.796'N, 013°22.210'E . Dangerous sandbanks extend for almost two miles on both sides of the entrance, so the approach is only safe from this buoy, near high water and in settled weather. The approach should be made on a course of 030 degrees. The entrance channel, which is dredged to a depths of just 3.0 metres, is marked by piles on either side.

Once inside the entrance, the channel forks. Take the starboard channel for around 300 metres, passing the entrance to Porto San Vito, and the pontoons of the Lega Navale are on starboard side. Do not get too close to the starboard channel markers in view of silting. Additional berths are available in the small basin in the heart of the old town, which is accessed by a long canal extending for 500 metres due S from just past the tiny basin at the end of the Lega Navale pontoons.


Transit moorings in Grado canal basin

Berths are available on the pontoons whenever a Lega Navale member is away. Depths here are rather shallow (from 1.0 - 3.0 metres) and a yacht over 10 metres or with a draft of 1.8 metres or over should only berth on the end of the pontoons. Of the 59 berths in the town basin, 12 are reserved for yachts in transit of a maximum length of 15 metres. Depths here are 2.0 - 2.5 metres. Since the moorings are in the heart of the town, they are very noisy.

Reasonable on pontoons. Poor in town basin.


The pontoons are around 200 metres from the old town centre. The main road through the town runs round the basin, which is thus right at the heart of things (with everything that implies!).


List transportation (local and/or international. Bus service to town?)


October 2012: Town basin Euros 40 per night for 13 metres. --s/v Seatern
