14 Things To Check To Prepare Your Boat For Winter
Relax this winter knowing your boat is sheltered at Milford Marina.
Our locked marina provides vessels with a secure and sheltered haven during the winter months, with our winter tariff running from 1st October to 31st March. Whether you’re wanting to give your boat a time out from the water or simply want to extend your sailing season, Milford Marina offers flexible contracts at competitive prices for both storage ashore in our on-site boatyard and pontoon berthing.
In an idyllic location on the Milford Haven Waterway, continue your boating adventures through the colder months from Milford Marina and enjoy the beauty of Pembrokeshire’s crisp mornings on the Haven. With a smaller weather window, our frequent locking schedule allows for easy access in and out of the marina in no time.
If your boat needs some TLC over the winter, our secure boatyard (water and electricity available) is the perfect location to carry out all your fixes and repairs. Whether you’re new to the world of boating or in need of a helping hand, we have a great selection of marine services on-site who hold expert knowledge to meet all your maintenance needs.
In preparation for the winter, why not check out our handy winter berthing checklist to make sure you’re ready for the months to come.
Let our Marina Operatives lift your boat and the weight off your shoulders by transporting it to or from our boatyard with ease with our boat hoist service. If you don’t have your own cradle, chocking services and cradles are available to hire (subject to availability). To book a lift in or out of the water, please fill out our request form and a member of the team will be in touch. Staff are on hand 24/7/365, so rest assured knowing your boat is in safe hands, especially if you’re unable to visit the marina often. Our Marina Team carry out frequent security patrols and extra boat checks when experiencing bad weather. If you’re unable to check on your boat, please contact the Marina Office where a member of staff will be more than happy to assist.
Milford Marina is part of Milford Waterfront, where you’ll find everything you need and more within walking distance from your boat including a fantastic selection of places to eat, shop and pick up daily essentials.
