Harbour Systems Ltd
Company Overview

Sonia and Steve Goacher started Harbour Systems Ltd in 2002, launching a Harbour Management System to enable harbour offices to manage mooring allocation and annual invoicing. eHarbours was rolled out in 2009 (the online version) at which point all customers were migrated to the new harbour software system. So eHarbours is now a feature rich product which suits the needs of each harbour and marina customer – a very wide range of features continues to be developed and in 2024 we will see the launch of an all-new customer self-service system.

Today our customers include some of the largest harbour authorities in the UK as well as many small harbour offices overseeing just a few moorings. Every harbour authority needs features specific to their particular situation, so we deliver custom features to ensure that their staff can manage their business in a way that best suits their workflow.

eHarbours is also capable of managing Marina berths. The development of a marina planning system enables marinas nationwide to ensure maximum space utilisation in any marina environment. Contact us to find out how we can help your harbour or marina office.

Our Achievements

Our experienced team has delivered some amazing projects over the 25 years that we have worked together. Many of those projects and long-standing customer relationships continue today, with most harbours and marinas having been with us for 10+ years.

Today the growth of eHarbours continues and over the last 10 years our systems have managed over £100m of harbour dues, mooring fees and visitor fees across UK Harbour Authorities and Marinas based on the South, East and West Coast of the UK.

In 2016 we forged a new ongoing relationship with the Royal Yachting Association British Sailing Team to provde data storage and processing for the elite teams. If your organisation needs a reliable, dedicated partner focused on developing your business well into the future, contact us today.

Our Products

All of our products are hosted on our own servers in a dedicated data centre which provides an exceptionally high level of robustness and information security.


Our core product – eHarbours – is a web based administration and finance system that enables harbour authorities and marinas to manage leisure marine activities including permenant and visitor moorings, invoices, payments, including harbour and marina visitor bookings.

POS Till System

In 2023 our new office based point-of-sale till system became operational in most of our customers’ premises. Purpose-built for taking payments from yachting and boating customers, the till system is fully integrated with eHarbours and includes dedicated card payment terminals to ensure easy payment management for face to face customers.
