Ensuring your boat is sheltered from the worst of the wind and rain, afloat or ashore, will give you peace of mind this winter. As the waves start to crash, and the wind whistles, you can sit back and relax knowing that your boat is in good hands at Milford Marina.
We offer both hard standing storage in our on-site boatyard and sheltered winter berthing, at competitive rates. We understand that no two boat owners’ requirements are the same, so we offer a range of packages to suit all needs, including short and long-term berthing and boatyard-only contracts.
Milford Marina has everything you and your boat could need through the winter. As well as sheltered berthing and an on-site boatyard, we have marine service businesses based here, a dedicated Marina Team keeping a watchful eye on your boat 24 hours a day, and a great selection of cafes and restaurants to take a break at when you’re working on your boat over the winter. For convenience, Havens Head Retail Park, with shops including Tesco and Boots, is just a short walk away, as is the train station and bus stop.
You won’t have to worry about getting your boat in and out of the water if you are storing it ashore. As well as slipway access inside the marina, we also provide a boat lift service for vessels up to 14 tonnes (subject to size), and have chocking and cradles available to hire if you are storing your boat in the Milford Marina Boatyard. Whether you take out a winter berth, or choose hard storage, both locations are easily accessible, with electricity and water hook ups available, so that you can work through your winter jobs. Our well-maintained and lit pontoons are frequently checked by our Marina Team, especially in bad weather, so you can rest assured that your boat is being looked after.
Security is very important to us. Access to our sheltered berths is via coded gates, along with good CCTV coverage throughout, and our dedicated Marina Team is on hand 24/7 if you have any concerns about your boat.
Milford Marina is easily accessible and based at the heart of Milford Waterfront. There is ample free parking, and recently upgraded shower and toilet facilities available for all contract holders. Our berth holders are part of a welcoming boating community, many of whom enjoy getting together at our popular monthly social events, for a cuppa, a cake and a catch up.
Our winter tariff runs from 1st October to 31st March with the opportunity to enjoy 10 weeks free storage if you are a 12 month berth holder, plus a range of other benefits. You can start a short or long term contract at any time during the year, and there is no surcharge to spread the cost by Direct Debit. You even have the option to pause your contract if you take an extended sailing trip.
