Poole boat storage&slipway

Currently planning on selling my boat due to the current hassle of launching and storage.

Living and storage in swanage is a pain with swanage boat park being shut this year! Slipway is open but nearest parking is atleast a mile away!! The pontoon just damages the boat if left unattended.

This means I must drive the boat and launch at baiter park which takes time and is costly.
Also where it was kept in a yard the trailer has no brakes so don't want the cost of refitting them.

Does anyone know of anywhere cheap to keep a boat in the poole area? Either in a yard with slipway or somewhere close to baiter park.

Happy with it being in self launching.

Thanks!!

I'm not sure "Poole" and "cheap" really goes together! (or "boat" and "cheap" for that matter...). Parkstone Bay marina used to offer storage on your own trailer, and I assume you could then self launch, or just tow round to Baiter. Storage at a sailing/yacht club (Parkstone YC, Poole YC, etc) is typically a bit cheaper, but then you have to be a member (with associated fees and possibly other requirements/duties). Ridge Wharf and the others up towards Wareham are a bit cheaper, I don't know how much Shell Bay Marine charge. Worth checking with Cobbs and the other yards on that site (Davis?), as they used to have plenty of boats on trailers self launching.

Will give Davis a call. Looked at all the big ones but obviously big prices!!

Happy to do the whole self launching thing as I can just do it all hours o the day at my leisure.

Just wasn't sure if there were any other small ones I didn't know about

The holy grail of boat storage - somewhere close to the water, but cheap! Sadly around our way doesn't really happen, unless you have a friend with a big garden/drive/yard you can store in.


Suspect the Wareham places are the cheapest - I'm certainly not aware of anywhere sneaky Poole -> Lilliput -> Sandbanks to store a boat, unless you can get it into a sailing/yacht club at a member's rate.

Ridge Wharf is pretty cheap I think only about 600 a season?


I used to keep an 18ft Rinker Bowrider down at Parkstone Bay but last time I went down there they seem to be focusing on dry stack and storage with the slipway being blocked off, although this was over the winter period.

So true.

But also surely Wareham is a bit out the way. Especially with tidal issues and all that.

Why not try a swinging mooring.
Just a thought. Don't know how much that costs though.

Whizz.

your best bet would probably be Rockley Boat park in Poole Harbour.

My friend has a mooring near the lake road slipway. Pays 189 and year. Includes harbour dues and all other fees. Doesn't dry out at low tide either. Think it's with PHC.


Seems like a no brainier to me!
