Dry Stack Berthing in Plymouth

We offer dry stack berthing from our town centre location in Plymouth for RIBs and motorboats up to 36ft LOA and 5 tonnes in weight.

Our dry berthing service is entirely geared around your needs. We store your boat ashore on our state-of-the-art indoor racking system and launch your boat for you whenever you want to use it. This year-round service offers the flexibility of unlimited launching on demand, 7 days a week.

YHQ Dry Stack Launching

How much notice is required?

We ask for two hour's notice to launch your boat. 

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.
