Slipyard at
Margate Marina

Located just 20 minutes south of Hobart, Margate Marina has a well-established slipping service with an excellent reputation, competitive pricing, security and managed access for owners and trades. Most trades are located nearby and are familiar with the slipyard.

The slipyard is environmentally friendly and fully equipped with the facilities and services to meet your needs. We can safely haulout your yacht, motor boat or catamaran.

Margate Marina can slip vessels up to 18m (60’) and up to 23 tonnes, including catamarans. We use a Roodberg submersible slipway trailer (a Dutch world leader in slipway transport systems). Its adjustable carrier pads form with the boat’s hull seamlessly and prevent damage. Boat handling is not only faster and more economical, but also safer.

The slipyard area has ample space and facilities for sand blasting, pressure washing and general maintenance by trades and owners. DIY clients are welcome.

Future plans include a 750sq metre marine trades building which will be tenanted to trades such as shipwrights, riggers, mechanics, electricians, chandlery and a boat sales brokerage.

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.”

“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.”
