Deacons Yard

Boat care - we care, at Deacons Yard in the Solent

Deacons Yard

Our yard was established on the river Hamble in the 1920s, and we've been providing boatbuilding services and DIY yard space ever since. Our hoist can lift yachts and motorboats to 14m (45 feet) 20 tonnes. Call us on 02380 402 253 for a chat.

We have berths in our marina for you to prepare your boat for the lift, and if you're not around for lift and launch day, we can deliver her back onto a berth or mooring.

Just minutes from Junction 8 of the M27 with ample free parking, Deacons is probably the most conveniently located boatyard in the Solent.
