Dry Sailing

The dry sailing package is for boats on trailers e.g. Power boats and RIBs.  If you wish to keep your boat in St Mawes for the whole of the summer but you will only be visiting occassionally then this package may suit your needs.

We will store your boat on the quay on its trailer, launch it and tow it to your mooring ready for your visit.  We will then collect it on your departure, haul it out, wash it off and store it until your next visit.  The standard package allows 3 launches and 3 retrievals.  Please note it is advisable to give us as much notice as possible on arrival dates as there are only a limited amount of shallow moorings available.  Dates need to be booked through the office either via phone but preferrably via email:  office@freshwaterboatyard.com

We have non-tidal swinging moorings available to rent on a seasonal basis and some short term moorings for holiday visitors.

Our seasonal mooring package includes:

  • Periodic checks on boats on our moorings
  • Daytime parking in the boatyard (please note if we are exceptionally busy or there is heavy machinery being used in the yard we may ask you to find alternative parking)
  • Tender storage
  • Use of pontoon for loading/unloading and taking on water only

We do not have a refuelling capability on site but might be able to organise refuelling if required.

We also have a number of shallow moorings which are suitable for boats upto 18.5ft in length which can be available for weekly rental for visitors. For further information on moorings please do not hesitate to contact us.

Winter Boat Storage

We offer storage on the hardstanding or on the sheltered foreshore.  Under-cover storage can be arranged for boats on trailers.

Using our hydraulic boat hoist, yachts and motor boats can be safely lifted onto the hardstanding and a static crane is used for stepping masts and lifting engines and boats up to 1 ton in weight.  Masts are stored in a covered storage area on site.

All boats are pressure washed by the boatyard at time of lay-up and charged accordingly.  Winter covers, cradles and boat legs are stored free of charge during the summer.


Our staff can carry out all your necessary maintenance work, whether it be cleaning, polishing, anti fouling, servicing winches and seacocks or charging batteries.
