Dry Stack Berthing in Lymington

We offer dry stack berthing from our town centre location in Lymington for RIBs and motorboats up to 10m LOA.

Our dry berthing service is entirely geared around your needs. We store your boat ashore on our purpose built cradles or racks and launch your boat for you whenever you want to use it. This year-round service offers the flexibility of unlimited launching on demand, seven days a week through the summer, and weekdays through the winter months. And, of course, during the winter, we can launch your boat for you on a Friday, ready for the weekend.

How much notice is required?

We ask for two hour's notice to launch during opening hours, 9am to 6pm, 7 days a week, throughout the summer. If you require use of your boat on the weekends during the winter (or think you're likely to use it) please let us know by 3pm on Friday, and we'll arrange for your boat to be on the water in preparation for your arrival.

If you want to head out before sunrise, just let us know the day before and we'll launch off your boat ready for your early start. Similarly, if you arrive back after hours, simply tie up and we'll recover your boat the next morning, jet-wash her off and safely store her back in the dry stack rack.

Can I work on my boat?

If you want to work on your boat, we can place it on a 'tinkering rack' where you'll have access to water and electricity. Simply call ahead as per normal, and we'll get your boat setup for you.

You'll find a range of marine services ready to help look after your boat, from engineers to general repairs.
