The Boatyard is approx. 3600m2, the slipway with adjacent pier connects directly to the yard, and we have a shed of 400m2.

We can presently accommodate boats up to 17m length, 6m beam, and have all usual yard facilities and skills on site for any repair work, including steelwork, propellers, shafts, gearboxes, marine diesel engines, stern drives, outboards, generators, pumps, hydraulics and electrical work.
