The Drystack at Trafalgar Wharf guarantees you UNLIMITED, convenient, hassle-free storage and launching of your Ballistic.

They lift and launch your RIB with a massive Wiggins Marine boatlift. This means all you have to do is give them a call and your RIB will be at the pontoon ready and waiting when you arrive.

 

No hassle, no problems, NO WASTING TIME.

They can store, lift and launch boats up to 13m long and 10 tons (*subject to weight distribution) and that makes them the BIGGEST DRYSTACK IN THE UK.

The Drystack in Portsmouth makes Ribbing as convenient and low maintenance as humanly possible.  That’s because the Drystack system is the ultimate boat berth for RIBs on the Solent.

 

Imagine arriving at The Drystack at Trafalgar Wharf, parking up (which is free), strolling to the pontoon, and slipping out in less than 5 minutes.  Launching is done with great care and precision by their fully-trained and insured staff. You’ll never have to stand up to your midriff on a slippery, windy and wet slipway.

 

And when you come back in, you’ll probably still be in the car park by the time they’ve secured your RIB in the undercover Dry stack.

That is only after they lifted the boat, washed it off, checked it for any damage and stored your boat under cover.

 

The Drystack experience is what discerning boat owners choose because the system really works. For now, it’s still a relatively new concept, but they know it’s going to catch on fast and overtake marina berths for boats.

 

And there are a number of reasons why:

 

Firstly, the Drystack they have at Portchester saves enormously on boat maintenance.

 

Typically you would save £1768.60 on maintenance costs EVERY year for a 10 metre boat. Check out the example here.

 

If there’s a storm in the Solent, it’s 100% guaranteed that there won’t be any damage to your boat.

 

You don’t have anything to worry about (even in the summer when you are away on holiday).

 

Secondly, storage for your boat is very secure.

They are on the former Vosper Thorneycroft site and they built boats for the Navy they, so they guard your boat like a top-secret craft. The site at Portchester is as secure a boat storage as you’ll find anywhere.

 

Plus they have 24 hour security and CCTV. And your boat is locked up INDOORS!

 

Thirdly, when you come to sell your boat it will be worth more.

Boats in a drystack hold their value because they are in better condition. In fact, this can virtually eliminate any fees associated with the drystack when you come to sell your boat. A premium of 15-10% is achieved by brokers for boats that have been Drystacked.

 

After a great day out, you can travel home safe in the knowledge that  EVERYTHING is taken care of by professionals.

 

It’s the ultimate no-hassle way of maximising your precious leisure time. And boat owners that have their boats dry stacked find they use their boats a lot more because it’s so easy.

 

Jump in the car, make a phone call, and get in your boat. It’s that simple.

Dry stack storage doesn’t mean you need to compromise on your boating enjoyment.

 

The Drystack customers enjoy fantastic facilities that include secure free parking, the Waterside Café/Bar, a brand new shower and toilet block and a comprehensive network of support from the many marine businesses they have on site.

 

Meeting other boat owners who have their boat dry stacked is also part of the fun. Because the system takes over any hard work from you... you’ve got more time to socialise and make friends.

 

Big boat storage is no problem at The Drystack at Trafalgar Wharf.

They are the only dry stack in the UK able to look after motor yachts, sports boats, powerboats and RIBs of up to 13 metres long and 10 tons.

 

Because of their 7 figure investment in the latest dry stack engineering and facilities at Trafalgar Wharf Portsmouth they are also able to accommodate fly bridge motor yachts in their dry stack.

 

Just tell them the height of your boat and they’ll discuss your options.

 

Extended opening times help you make the most of the weather.

 

The Drystack is open from 0900 to 1700 all year round.

 

Just choose to launch and come back within these hours.

 

And if you want to come back or launch outside these times, they can arrange for your boat to be berthed on the holding pontoon until you arrive.

 

The Drystack at Trafalgar Wharf is flexible about your paperwork.
