Flat calm on neep tides – the perfect conditions for lifting out boats in Poole Harbour!

The sun is shining, the water is calm! The perfect day for a winter lift out and pressure wash. Stop by and we’ll book you in for a bit of a spruce up in the winter sunshine!

We’re busy lifting out the local ferry boats usually found on Poole Quay. Preparing these boats for their busy summer season taking tourists and locals on jaunts around the islands in the harbour is taken very seriously by the operators. In this photograph you can see Island Scene, one of the City Cruises Fleet, about to have its engines lifted back into place and behind it Purbeck Gem from the Greenslade’s Pleasure Cruise fleet is undergoing a facelift of its paintwork and interior. Looking superb!

It’s not just ferry boats that are in need of a bit of TLC over the winter period, we are taking lots of bookings for annual antifoul treatments and cleaning of sailboats and motor boats from across the area. It’s simple to book, just give the office a call on 01202 674531 and we’ll do our best to fit your boat in.
