Portland Marina’s Dry Stack is all set and ready for Spring boating season

As the days get longer and boatowners look forward to getting out and spending more time on the water, the new dry stack at Portland Marina offers a convenient and accessible berthing spot. Perfect for RIBs, sportsboats, ski boats and day angling boats up to 9 metres, dry berthing is a safe and secure alternative to trailer launch or marina berths.

19 metres high, 84 metres long and with 132 berths undercover, unlike many other dry stacks in the UK, the Portland Marina Dry Stack is clad on the back, sides and roof to give protection from the elements including the prevailing wind.

With a two hour launch service on demand, the dry stack has been built to provide storage for boat owners wanting to keep their boat within striking distance of Dorset’s stunning boating destination – perfect for cruising, diving, fishing and making the most of the Jurassic Coastline.

Berth holders can also look forward to a new Neptune Hoist negative forklift. This means that Portland Marina will have two hoists to launch boats into and out of the water to help improve the efficiency of both launch and recovery of boats.

Paul Swain, Berthing Manager at Portland Marina says, “We can’t wait to welcome new and current berth holders to Portland Marina and help them to spend as much time as possible out on the water enjoying themselves. We are also looking forward to work beginning in April 2019 on the piling for new pontoons and by June we’ll be able to offer an extra 40 berths afloat – perfect timing for summer adventures.”

Dean & Reddyhoff are continuing to invest in Portland Marina with the build of the new dry stack, cladding and sprinkler system costing more than £900,000.

Berths are available on an annual or seasonal basis and include the service of valet fuelling of petrol or diesel at cost price to all berth holders.
