Vessels which qualify for composition dues may opt for periods of less than 12 months within the financial year.

Monthly charges are fixed at 10% of Annual Rate.

It is the responsibility of vessel owners or skippers to give prior notification to the Harbourmaster of the period for which they expect to be liable for dues. Failure to give such notification will result in vessels being billed at the annual composition rate.

N.B. Composition dues are payable in advance and are Non-Refundable

Above rates are applicable at all Class A Harbours.

Vessels which restrict activities to Class B and Class C Harbours may apply for discounted rates as follows:-

Class B Harbours - 85% of full rate

Class C Harbours - 70% of full rate

Any fishing vessel which has paid Composition Dues may call and land at any suitable Comhairle harbour during the period of validity of the payment. This does not cover the transportation of fish or shellfish, which have been landed at one port and are subsequently shipped to a second port. Such transportation is subject to the normal commercial rates or to a separately negotiated rate.

Note: Vessel Owners intending to lay up should contact the Harbourmaster to arrange suitable berth or hardstand.
