Home   Boatyard Services

MDL boasts ten fully serviced boatyards in the UK, stretching from Devon to Kent. Eight are operated by MDL, whilst the services at Bray and Penton Hook are provided by partner operators. MDL's customers can still use the facilities at Dolphin Boatyard, the former Dartside Quay site.

Each one is recognised for its long tradition and experience in motorboat and yacht care, reinforced by our customers who return year after year to take advantage of this expertise. Coupled with an unrivalled choice of first-class marine service providers you'll find everything you need at an MDL boatyard to keep your boat in first class order.

But we don't just invest in our facilities - investment in our teams ensures that your boat is handled by people who care and use equipment designed for the task in hand. Our teams go to great lengths to make certain that whether we are providing boat lifting, storage ashore, pressure washing or towage, each service is delivered as the designer intended.

Our professional, highly qualified teams are also on hand to help identify quality providers. The wide range of marine trades and services available on site or close to our boatyards means we can put you in touch with experts specialising in everything from sail making and engine repairs to hull care and electronics. In fact, shore or afloat, we can cater for your every need.

We offer a range of services, including:

  • Pressure Washing - cleaning the boat hull with a high pressure water spray.
  • Lift, block off/load onto transport - boat lifted and placed in cradle or blocked off. Then lifted onto a transporter.
  • Relaunch/launch off transport - boat lifted off transporter and launched into the water.
  • Lift, hold and relaunch - boat lifted out of the water, held in slings for 30 minutes and then put back in the water.
  • Mast step single spreader - lifting single spreader mast and placing the mast ready for fitting onto the boat.
