Hi Dockhead, I used to live about 1 km from the Lauttasaari Marina. Unfortunately no boating
experience around Helsinki. Here's a link to a boating
guide published by the city, scroll down for English http://www.hel.fi/static/liv/2013/veneopasfiswen.pdf
Suomenlinna is mentioned in the guide. Suomenlinna marina's website is here [URL="http://www.valimo.org/vierassatama/"], says 20t boats maximum, which could be a problem for you? Best maybe to call in advance to make sure you fit, harbourmaster gsm: +358-41 510 1060. Docking
is 27 eur/day, including electricity. Suomelinna is an old fortress
island a 10min ferry
ride from Helsinki city center. It's a really nice and interesting neighborhood with lots of history
. If I ever take our boat to Helsinki, will probably stay there.
Katajanokka is right next to Suomenlinna, on the mainland, you can walk to the center. Don't know pricing, but probably a lot more expensive. Boat size here will not be a problem and you can get a berth alongside the dock
if you like. Here's a link with coordinates and harbormaster phone http://www.vierassatamat.fi/index.ph...satama-id=7411
Hope someone with more experience there can chime in. Heading for Turku anytime soon?
