Macduff Harbour today is still a working harbour, although not as busy as it used to be. 

It is still used by several fishing boats which are berthed here, and sometimes fishermen still land their catch.  

Shipbuilding continues by Macduff Shipyards who also have ship-repair premises in Fraserburgh.  

Macduff Shipyards have facilities at both ends of the harbour with traditional wooden hulled boats being built at the west end of the harbour, and steel hulled boats at the east end.
