Lake Yard Boatyard

Always a Safe Pair of Hands

Lake Yard is a fully equipped working boatyard crewed by skilled and experienced mariners and we offer the full range of services for crafts of all sizes.

As you would expect from a marina dock that originally built MoD craft and bespoke motor cruisers back in the 30s, Lake Yard is a fully equipped working boatyard. It offers the complete range of marine services, including pressure washing, antifouling, polishing and the replacement of anodes. 

Our 50 ton Roodberg mobile hoist facilitates easy lifting in and out of the marina for storage, maintenance and anti-fouling. The hoist can lift boats up to 22 metres in length and we are regularly used by both Sunseeker International and Greenslades Pleasure Boats. Our static dockside crane is used for lifting sports boats and trailer boats up to 1 tonne and 5 metres in length. We also use it for ‘mast assists’: helping people lift their masts into position and taking masts down.

Boat maintenance

We can undertake all manner of maintenance on your vessel, including minor hull repairs, servicing and mechanical maintenance. Our friendly and experienced onsite engineer specialises in Mercury & Yamaha outboards and provides advice and practical help with all things mechanical. In fact, there are always knowledgeable and seasoned sailors and engineers working on or visiting the boatyard and they are only too keen to offer encouragement and some hands-on assistance.

Winter Storage

During the cold and windy winter months, many boat owners like to ‘lay up’ their boats on hard standing. We have a limited amount of Winter Storage space available with priority given to our existing marina and moorings customers.

Benefits of laying up over winter with us are:

  • Secure, convenient location
  • CCTV coverage
  • Yardsmen and Engineers on site
  • Car Parking
  • Boat Lifting
  • Restaurant & Bar (including free Wi-Fi)

The Winter Storage rate is available from 1st November until 31st March with a minimum commitment of 22 weeks.
