Mylor Yacht Harbour offers a range of practical winter shore storage packages and all the necessary equipment and experience to safely lift boats from the water for winter storage.
Its team of marine specialists are also available to help with any aspect of preparing yachts for winter lay-up.
Engineering manager Nathan Percival explains, "Even though Cornwall doesn’t suffer from the coldest winters or the heaviest snowfall, it is still a wise precaution to winterise an engine to protect against the cold and damp and prevent corrosion problems or damage from frost and freezing.”
To keep boats safe but also accessible over the winter, there is the option to store your boat ashore in a sheltered boatyard or take a berth in Mylor’s marina. The company provides a comprehensive winter checklist on its website to help boat owners prepare for the change of season while the boat is still in the water and when it is hauled out.
“Many owners are happy to discuss winterisation work but also look to our experts for more technical work, such as hull and decking repairs, electronics installation and other equipment which needs servicing or repair, so it's great to be able to offer all these services on site,” added Nathan.
