Boat Lifting and Storage Facilities

BOAT LIFTING

Endeavour Quay boatyard is an ideal location for lifting bigger boats. We have one of the biggest travel lift boat hoists on the south coast of England capable of lifting vessels up to:

  • 180 tonnes
  • 40 metres LOA
  • 8.5 metre beam

Because of this, customers with smaller boats sometimes choose to use our facilities as they know that our equipment and staff are more than capable of safely lifting and taking care of their vessel in our boatyard. Our Alto boat mover is able to move boats up to 45 tonnes and allows us to manoeuvre boats in and out of our large undercover storage sheds and around the yard.

MAST CRANEAGE

Premier Endeavour Quay has its own 35 tonne mobile crane on-site at the boatyard capable of lifting masts up to 34 metres in height (also suitable for lifting engines, smaller vessels and RIBs).

If a larger crane is required we have excellent relationships with local crane contractors who specialise in working in the marine environment and can easily help you source the right equipment. Masts are stored securely in the mast rack at Endeavour Quay or nearby.

OPEN STORAGE

We have 3,000m2 of secure outside storage space with access to fresh water and electricity. Your vessel will be placed in one of our galvanised cradles or blocked with wooden shores. We aim to allow ease of access around each vessel to ensure work can be carried out to the topsides as efficiently as possible. We can also accommodate vessels that need to be scaffolded or tented.

Mast storage We have a mast rack to store your mast whilst your boat is being worked on, or if you have some work to do on the mast itself. We operate an alternative secure facility nearby where we have room for larger masts and containers.

Container hire and storage We have space for containers to be used as a workshop, or sail and equipment storage. For long-term storage we have a secure facility 500m from Endeavour Quay where we can store large or extended stay items. You can also rent containers from us. Please contact Tim Newell for further information.

UNDERCOVER STORAGE

One of the major attractions of Endeavour Quay is the 3 large fully serviced boat sheds totalling 2,000m2. Vessels are manoeuvred in to the boat sheds using our Alto boatmover machine or by using our large boat winch. Services available undercover include:

  • 63 amp metered power supply (110V and 240V)
  • Lighting and heating
  • Overhead gantry cranes
  • Project offices and store rooms

BERTHING

Endeavour Quay boasts deep water access on the pontoons and lifting dock area at all states of the tide. There are two 45 metre (140ft) long waiting pontoons capable of berthing vessels with a water draft up to 5 metres (15ft) and no restrictions on air draft. These pontoons are protected by a substantial breakwater, offering alongside mooring with 24 hour shore access, potable water supply and a permanent electric supply up to 63 amp, 3 phase.

PROJECT OFFICES

Project management is an important aspect of any refit or boat repair. We can make introductions to experienced and professional individuals who can help steer your project from co-ordinating your arrival in the yard all the way to your departure. We have workshops and offices that are available to rent on a short or long term basis. Whether it is a tea room or project office you require for your refit team, or a meeting room for that all important visit by the owner, we can help cater for your needs.
