Dry stack at Trafalgar Wharf
Indoor dry stack boat storage is available at Trafalgar Wharf in Portsmouth Harbour for motorboats, sportfishers and RIBs between 4 metres and 13 metres.
Easier than launch and recovery from a trailer, but cheaper than a marina berth, dry stack storage is a convenient and cost-effective option. Trafalgar Wharf can accommodate up to 380 boats, making it the UK's largest indoor dry stack facilities. Our packages include unlimited launch and recovery via an app with the added benefit that your boat gets a washdown after each use.
Savings on repairs
Premier Marinas’ dry stack service saves on boat maintenance and running costs. Your boat is stored out of the water and its hull is washed after every use, reducing the need to antifoul and improving fuel efficiency as well as protecting resale value. Meanwhile you can feel reassured that your boat is safe and secure 24 hours a day.
Ready and waiting
Unlimited launch and recovery services are included in our dry stack packages, so your boat is ready whenever you want to use it. Booking is straightforward via the Premier App where you can request to launch your boat with just an hour’s notice.

Premier Marinas' friendly, highly trained dry stack team is capable of lifting two boats every 10 minutes using one of the three 42 tonne forklifts, all of which include telescopic cameras to provide advanced visibility, allowing the team to lift boats up 65 foot and down 25 foot.
To honour the history of the site, Trafalgar’s three forklifts are all named after three influential women to Lord Admiral Nelson – Emma, Fanny and Little Lucy.
All of our dry stack marinas include first-class facilities, 24-hour security and parking along with a place to enjoy a hot drink or meal and recycling facilities.
