Our yard is situated in Harbour Road, immediately adjacent to Gosport Marina and just a short distance from Haslar Marina and Royal Clarence Marina. It was purchased in 1973 by Chris Haddock from the late Bob & Betty Winter who ran the local chandlery Solent Marine services.

A short time later we aquired a mobile crane which has been changed and up-graded several times. Recently, we purchased a larger Demag 100-ton crane with extended jib length. This has enabled us to lift larger vessels and also, with our new spreader beams, much larger catamarans.


We can accomodate approx 120 boats ashore during the winter ranging from 20-ft vessels to 55-ft. We are usually extremely busy in the Spring with many boats coming ashore for a quick 'spruce up' - for anti-fouling, anodes and topside cleaning. This can nbe carried out by one of our painters or shipwrights or we do encourage owner maintenance. Also - mainly for owner maintenance - we have a special 'bottoms up' offer to come ashore for the weeeknd only. We lift out vessels on a Friday including scrubbing them off and leave them ashore for you to work on during the week-end, then relaunch on the Monday morning. This is a very popular service and is often booked up several weeks in advance, it is available all year round. Simply ring Gilly, who handles all our lift-out bookings, for further information or to book your lifting requirements.


We can offer full boat yard facilities, including Shipwright, Marine Engineer, Painter, Grp repairs, Electrical Work and Rigging.
