Once lifted out of the water your boat will be placed on trestles or sleepers depending on the work being carried out. Trestles are used to enable access underneath the hull and sleepers if hardstanding where no hull access is required.
You can live on your boat during your dry dock and utilities are available including free WiFi (currently a little temperamental), electrical connection, Elsan and we provide you with steel stairs for easy access of your vessel.
The Bridgewater Boats Marina is a private residential site, so please be aware that their facilities are NOT open to P&S Marine customers. Terms & Conditions apply.

GLORIA: DO NOT USE THE TOP QUESTION - IT IS INVISIBLE
Can I live on my boat while I'm on hardstanding?
Can I bring a car or van?
Yes. We have very limited spaces and this needs to be confirmed before hand with P&S Marine. There are also free places to park nearby outside of the marina.
