Whatever boatyard services you need, the chances are we can provide it for you. Take a look at the extensive range of specialist boatyard services that we offer.
Our boat hauling service is incredibly sought after because we take great care of every vessel that we need to load onto our trailers. All we ask is that you ensure that your boat is prepared and ready for hauling or storage. We can:
- Haul sailboats or powerboats up to 40 feet in length.
- Mast-side carry (for a small additional charge.)
- Consider hauling boats over the maximum permitted length dependent on circumstances.
- Provide a rider for vessels that are over-height (for an additional charge.) This ensures that wires and other hazards can be accounted for.
- Provide mast step/unstep (for an additional charge.) Simply ensure that all sails and boom are removed prior to your boat arriving in our yard.
- Transport your vessel to a mooring or a slip.
All you need to do is make sure that your boat is operational before we load it. As soon as you have paid your handling fee, we are able to transport your boat to its new location. Simply make sure that the blocks and stands are ready for storage otherwise we may have to return your vessel to its original location.
