Recommendations for Berthing In Helsinki

We've stayed at the yacht club on Lauttasaari, for free, but the limit is two nights. I need to spend about a week there. Where to stay? There are at least 15 marinas around HelsinkI, and hard get an overview. Grateful for any tips.

We're in the lovely and convenient HSK club on Lauttaasari, but will need to move in a couple of days. No one has any insight about the 15 (!) marinas and guest harbors in Helsinki?

Re: Recommendations for Berthing In Helsinki

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?
