Our hard stand, which can accommodate 55 vessels, is conveniently positioned close to marine service providers. Alternatively, we offer a quieter long term area away from the main work area. We can arrange boat haulage or Hiab trucks. There is easy access for all contractors and power and water is available at all sites.

If you are planning on undertaking work on your own vessel, please remember that all material considered environmentally offensive (eg. antifoul scrapings etc.) must be collected on ground sheets. You must use approved vacuum dust extraction equipment which is also available for hire from our boat yard office.

Dry Sanding – when machine sanding approved vacuum dust extraction equipment must be used (see boatyard office to hire). When hand sanding all reasonable efforts must be taken to contain/clean up dust while sanding (use of vacuum equipment for clean up preferred).
