Swanwick Marina expands dry stack

Premier’s Swanwick Marina on the River Hamble has announced planning approval to extend its dry stack, a service for boats up to 11m.

Currently with capacity for up to 80 boats, the investment of £100,000 will see the dry stack increase to 112 spaces.

“We’re excited about the expansion and investment,” says Graham Bristowe, Swanwick’s General Manager. “The steel frame is currently being built and from next month groundworks will commence, with the project due to be completed by the beginning of August – still giving plenty of time for new customers to enjoy the delights of the Solent. As a service it offers a safe and secure solution to storing motorboats or RIBs and gives boat owners almost instant access to their boat, seven days a week.”

Dry stack customers can enjoy a host of benefits including unlimited lifting and launching all year round, fuel at cost, free full Sea Start membership and, for those who download the Premier mobile app, there is the option to book the launch or lift of their boat at ‘the touch of a button’, any day of the week. Plus, on returning to the marina, boat owners are able to leave their vessel on a waiting pontoon, where it will be lifted ashore, washed off and stored safely until their next visit to the marina.
