Question - Why should I choose a Dry Stack Marina over a traditional marina or storage ashore?

Answer - A Dry Stack Marina is a unique offering whereby you can enjoy your boating hassle-free. If you chose our Dry Stack Marina, you benefit from:

  • Jet wash after every retrieval
  • Excellent security; indoor storage with CCTV
  • Reduced maintenance costs; no need to antifoul or replace anodes
  • Better resale value
  • Cleaner, faster and more economical hulls
  • Free valet fuelling service (petrol only)
  • Unparalleled sheltered protection from the weather
  • Discover even more benefits!

Q - How does this Dry Stack marina work?

A - Your boat is stored indoors on our customer racking system. Simply call ahead and we will launch your vessel for you and have her ready and waiting for your arrival. This whole process takes just minutes. On return, you can tie up alongside and leave the rest to us. We'll pressure wash your boat and put her back in the rack. Find out more.

Q - What size boats do you cater for?


A - We currently handle Motor Cruisers, Sports boats, RIBS and Fast Fishers from 13' up to 36' in length 

Q - What happens if I return to my berth after working hours?

A - That's fine; simply leave your boat on one of our waiting pontoons and we'll lift it out in the morning, give her a pressure wash and pop her back in the dry stack.... Simple! 

Q - Do I have to be present when you launch or recover my boat?

A - No; you can call ahead and we'll have your boat in the water for your arrival. On return, you can tie up alongside and leave the rest to us. If you'd like to be present when we move your boat, you are more than welcome; just let a member of our team know. 

Q - Can I work on my boat in the rack?

Lift on sunny day

A - You can't work on your boat in the rack, however we can place your boat on a "tinkering rack" outdoors where you'll have access to water and electricity. Simply call ahead as per normal and we'll get your boat setup for you.

Q - What if I'd like to stay on my boat overnight?

A - As a berth holder at Yacht Haven Quay, you'll receive seven days berthing at Plymouth Yacht Haven absolutely FREE! They are just a couple of minutes downstream, so simply contact them in advance. Find our more about Plymouth Yacht Haven.
