Boat Maintenance

Boat Winterisation

Having your boat winterised each year will only protect and maintain the life of your vessel over time. We look after a number of boats moored on the marina in the off season, and as a result we see very fewer problems in the spring when customers wish to take advantage of some early good weather, after the winter lay up.

We provide a methodical winterisation routine that we believe represents great value, and listed below are some of the tasks performed in accordance to your boats requirements.

• Service and winterise engine (s) for winter period
• Check alternator
• Check starter motor
• Pump out domestic fresh water tank (s) and drain water heater system
• Lay up W.C.
• Check & Inspect batteries (we store the batteries during this period and trickle charge)
• Check all stern glands
• General Check on Moorings | Covers, Ropes, ect.
