Is it really that simple? Yes!
What do we do?
We safely lift, set down, store and re-launch your boat with our State of the art Submersible lift. This lift does not suspend boats high in the air from a crane, which can cause topsides to fold. The Submersible lift goes in to the water and straps under the boat. When the boat is lifted or launched, it is only 1-2 feet from the bottom of the keel to the ground. We also use special pad blocks where needed to ensure no damage to the rubbing strake or toe rail. We do not require masts to be un-stepped.
Packages to Suit the Customers Needs
We have flexible lift out and re-launch dates. We do not tie you in to a six month package like most marinas, we allow you to choose the best package to fit your needs. We work around your requirements
Secure Storage Gives You Peace Of Mind
Our boat owners appreciate we cradle all fin keel boats, and use shores and cross battening on all our boats as extra protection for those windy periods. You should be aware that patches on the undersides where the boat has been cradled or blocked are antifouled by the staff before re-launch
The marina is secured by a substantial security barrier and customers are given a key fob for access during their stay – (a refundable deposit of £10 is required to ensure boat owners take care of these!)
A Marine Community that is on hand for your Spares/Repairs/Care
You will have priority access to a list of recommended and experienced marine contractors. These have all been scrupulously checked by us to ensure they have the required public liability insurance
You can also take advantage of our antifouling service if you want to. A lot of our customers do this but some of our boat owners do their own and there’s plenty of room at Thornham Marina for you to carry out your essential work. We do not pack you in like sardines.
