For your convenience marina staff can arrange to have your boat in the water with 24 hours notice. Simply contact us to make a booking so we can schedule your launch and have your boat ready for use.
Margate Marina is conveniently located only 20 minutes from Hobart and at the gateway to a boating mecca. We are also the only marina in Hobart offering the combination of 24-hour camera surveillance, a friendly face to talk to 7 days a week and dual fuel pontoon available 24 hours a day to members and visitors.
Benefits of Dry
Storing Your Boat
- It’s a more affordable, low-maintenance alternative to leaving your boat on a mooring
- There is no need for regular cleaning, detailing and antifouling
- You also avoid deterioration caused by ultraviolet rays, dust and mould
- The value of your boat remains higher for a much longer period of time
- Reduced insurance costs
- More boats out of the water means less oil, fuel and sewage leaking into our waterways, and it reduces the impact of toxins from anti-fouling paints
- Casual monthly or longer term rates
- Maximises the value of a boat with brokers
- Peace of mind, less stress
What customers are saying
“Thanks for the expert service when Andromeda was hauled recently at Margate Marina. I needed the boat supported clear of the ground to allow work under the keel. This was possible with your hydraulic trailer and the hull was well propped and supported so that the 50 knot gusts during the time on the hard were not a problem. A very satisfactory experience.Roger Locke
“The service provided by Margate Marina is as good as I could want. You are prompt, friendly and competent. Having used both the DSS and Port Cygnet each for about 10 years your service compares favourably. I will continue to use your facility and look forward to further developments in the services available. The yard system and haul out trailer work well together. The stands hold my yacht in a convenient position to work on. It was interesting to hear about the marina development. We could be interested in occupying a berth when the development opens.”Andrew, Mollycoddle (11 metres, Adams design)
“I would like to pass on my sincere thanks to Justin and his team at Margate Marina for their support and positive attitude whilst having my boat on the slip for 2 weeks recently. I was really impressed with the new trailer and hardstands purchased recently, a real positive moving forward for your business. I highly recommend you guys to anyone looking at slipping their boats and I believe in time to come once the word is out your business will develop and grow as it should. Keep up the good work and once again thank you and we'll see you on the next slip.Dennis Lord – Morphik
“Just a short message of appreciation of your team at the Margate Marina, Justin, Emily, Gary & Dion. This last slip involved a lot of time and effort and at every stage of the work everyone was extremely helpful and co-operative. Could you please pass on my thanks and appreciation to all.”Colin Evans
