Tober­mory wants a new har­bour master

The Oban Times - - News -

RUN­NING Tober­mory har­bour could be some­one’s dream job.

And for the right per­son, the job of har­bour master could be theirs as early as this spring, be­cause Tober­mory Har­bour As­so­ci­a­tion (THA) has made an ap­pli­ca­tion for a Har­bour Em­pow­er­ment Or­der (HEO) to be­come a des­ig­nated har­bour au­thor­ity. It is an­tic­i­pated the HEO will be granted in March.

The growth of the busi­ness will see the group ap­point a per­ma­nent har­bour master to over­see the man­age­ment of all har­bour op­er­a­tions and marine staff.

With thou­sands of vis­i­tors afloat ev­ery year, a 50-berth pontoon at ca­pac­ity in sum­mer months and more than 30 cruise ships vis­it­ing per an­num, Tober­mory is one of the busiest small har­bours on the West Coast.

To help man­age vis­i­tors, the THA, a not-for-profit en­ter­prise that owns, man­ages and main­tains the har­bour fa­cil­i­ties, is adding a new pas­sen­ger land­ing pontoon this year.

THA chair­man Brian Swin- banks said: ‘This is a very ex­cit­ing job, with op­por­tu­ni­ties to shape both the man­age­ment of the har­bour and to de­velop in­fras­truc­ture that en­hances our wel­com­ing, friendly and grow­ing com­mu­nity.’
