The Delting Boating Club Marina (also known as the Brae Marina) is situated at the North West head of Busta Voe (60 23.49N - 01 29.45 W). It is owned by the Members of the Delting Boating Club Marina's Users Association and is managed by an elected Committee.
The Marina was built using funds raised by the Association Members and generous grant aid from the Shetland Islands Council and Delting Community Council. The Marina has close ties to the adjacent Boating Club with which it shares some facilities.
The Marina has 54 fully serviced berths with provision for visitors. Berths are equipped with fresh water and shore power; a diesel refuelling facility is provided at the head of the lifting out point.
Visitors should initially berth on the outside of the North pontoon from where a berth will be allocated. The entrance situated at the North East end of the breakwater can be difficult to see when approaching from the South; it is marked with Port and Starboard hand markers. Visitors should be aware of the shallows off the shore to the East of the Starboard hand mark. The adjoining Boating Club is one of the most active sailing clubs in Shetland and holds races on Saturday nights during the season. The Club is open at 7pm every evening during the summer months and visitors are most welcome to use the bar facilities. Winter storage ashore can be arranged.
