Dry Stack

Easy day boat and RIB dry berthing

Safe, quick unlimited launches

Cheaper than a marina berth & less stress than slipway launching!

Our fantastic forklift means that we can safely lift and store small motor boats ashore in Portland in our new dry stack. Perfect for RIBs, sportsboats, ski boats and day angling boats up to 9m LOA, dry berthing is a safe and secure alternative to trailer launch or marina berths.

  • On-demand launch (two hours notice)
  • Seven days a week service
  • Fuel at cost
  • Valet fuel service Tuesday to Thursday
  • Safer and quicker than trailer launching on a ramp
  • No need for expensive, polluting antifouling
  • Fresh water wash down on every lift
  • No wear and tear on your own trailer
  • Increased fuel efficiency from a clean hull

How Dry Berthing Works

Book in advance or call us when you want your boat launched and we'll do the rest.

  • Dry stack lift and launch service seven days a week
  • Book lifts in advance, or give us two hours notice (subject to availability)
  • Your boat will be launched and ready alongside a pontoon
  • When you're finished, leave the boat tied to the pontoon
  • We'll lift your boat, give it a fresh water wash down and return it to the cradle

The convenience of having the boat ready when you want it, coupled with the peace of mind of secure storage ashore.
