  • Economical and affordable

  • Less need to redo the antifouling: on average once every four years as against every year for a boat berthed in a wet marina
  • Safety and peace of mind: Less storm and bad-weather damage
  • Protection of the marine environment with a “Clean Port approach initiated
  • Storage in the boatshed subject to a space being available

What is a “dry marina”?

Unlike a wet marina, a dry marina is a dry berthing solution making it possible to store the boats ashore, generally outdoors on hard-standing areas, but also indoors in a boatshed.

There are two types of dry marina :

Metal cradles for dry berthing on hard standing : for sailing boats, catamarans, trimarans and larger motor boats.

Dry stack : on racks exclusively dedicated to motor boats of up to about 9 metres in length.

Generally, the geographical position of a dry marina is strategic with a view to offering customers immediate access to the water.
