How does Park & Launch work?

We keep your boat (up to 8m LOA, motorboats only) on our hard standing on your trailer while you're not using it. We'll then launch your boat on demand, ready for use from the marina pontoon. Once you've finished using your boat, we'll bring her out of the water, wash her off and store her safely in our secure compound.

Alternatively, just bring your boat down to us on a casual basis and we can launch and recover your boat for you.

The Park & Launch service is offered in partnership with Ray and his team at The Boat Shop WW.

Why Park & Launch?

  • Prolong the life of your boat

    Storing your boat out of the water will maintain the life of your hull and reduce deterioration.

  • Fuel efficiency

    Better boat and hull performance as it will stay cleaner and use less fuel.

  • Jet wash after every use

    Our team will clean off your boat every time you finish with it, then secure it in our yard
  • No need to antifoul

    You don't have to apply a protective paint layer to the bottom of your boat, saving you money and time.
  • No more trailer hassle

    No stress of trailering and towing your boat to the slipway. We'll take care of all of that for you.

  • Berthing flexibility

    A range of annual, seasonal and monthly options.

  • Affordable option

    Dry berthing is a more affordable option for boaters looking for boat storage solutions.

  • Open all year

    Our service operates 7 days a week throughout the year.

Frequently asked questions 

What happens if I return after working hours?

No problem. Just tie your boat up on the pontoon and we'll lift her the following morning. 

What if I want to go out on the water before 8am?

We ask for a minimum of 24 hours' notice for launching. So if you'd like to go out before 8am, we'll launch your boat the day before and so it is ready for your sunrise cruise!

Can I Park & Launch my 'trailer sailor'?

Yes, we offer these Park & Launch services for small, trailered yachts depending on the size/type of the vessel. Contact us to discuss this option.

Do I have to be present when you launch/recovery my boat?

No. We can take care of everything without your assistance, but you're welcome to watch our team in action!

What packages do you offer?

  • Annual - Unlimited launch and recovery all-year round, with your boat stored in our secure compound throughout that period.
  • Summer - Enjoy this service with the freedom to take your boat back home during the winter
  • Daily - Ad hoc use of our service, on demand.

Can I stay afloat in the marina overnight?

Absolutely. Most customers request to be launched on Friday to enjoy the weekend afloat, before we recover the boat on Monday. Customers on an annual Park & Launch contract can stay in the marina for free overnight, whereas casual customers simply pay for a visitor night.

Is it 7 days a week?

Our packages include weekends and bank holidays, and storage in our secure boatyard when not in use. Most customers request to be launched on Friday taking advantage of weekend berthing in the marina, before recovering the boat on Monday.
