Councillors have voted narrowly in favour of plans to build a £1m slipway at the West Pier in Stranraer.
It will replace an existing slipway about four miles out of the town at Wig Bay.
Planning committee councillors agreed by a single vote to the West Pier plan.
Officials see it as a key part of regeneration proposals for the town but there have been concerns about the cost and the business case for choosing that particular location.
