Boat Storage at Gallows Point


Our Facilities

ABC Powermarine offer facilities for boat storage and hauling out in both the Boatyard and the North Yard at Gallows Point yard at competitive prices (see below). There is easy access to water and electricity, cards for which are available from the chandlery and the petrol station.

We use a modern Wise 14 tonne boat hoist for launching and recovery, capable of handling boats up to 46ft/14.0m length and 14ft/4.25m beam; and we also operate a 15T Roodberg boat parker for moving boats around the yard and also into and out of the various marine industrial units at Gallows Point. Smaller vessels are launched and recovered by tractor and trailer.

The slipway, situated in the boatyard, is tidal and may be accessed by boat approximately three hours either side of high water. It may be used free of charge by customers who have boats stored in the yard; and for visiting boat owners there are daily rates as well as an annual pass. We also offer a year-round tractor 'park and launch' service, with reduced rates for boats stored in the yard.
