The Oyster Hoister

We have designed and developed the Oyster Hoister to hang under the Ardfern Yacht Centre marina pontoons to help restore the native oyster beds that were once abundant in Loch Craignish. Each suspended Oyster Hoister houses thirty mature oysters and because each oyster can filter up to 200 litres a day, they’ll help clean up the marina water as well as releasing spat.

Sponsor an Oyster Hoister! By sponsoring an Oyster Hoister you become an active stakeholder in our community project helping to further our aims. Each Oyster Hoister costs £150 in the first year and an annual service charge of £60 thereafter. We can inscribe your name or that of your boat on an Oyster Hoister nameplate.
