Helpful information about Storage –

All Storage Package Types (with the exception of Wet Winter and Trailer – Storage ONLY) include Haul, Pressure Wash, Blocks/Poppet Rental, Storage and Spring Launch

LOA – Length Over All – This is measure from the Tip of the engine in the upright position to the Tip of your bow/pulpit or Anchor (farthest point). However, if your vessel is stored on a trailer, it is calculated at LOT – Length of Trailer which is measured from the Tip of the engine in an upright position to the Tip of the tongue of the trailer.  We reserve the right to measure any vessel for an accurate length and adjust contracts accordingly.

Wet Winter Storage – vessel is stored in the water only. Please make note of these dates on the contract 10/05/2023-04/15/2024.

Tender Storage – If your tender, on its trailer, exceeds 15 ft. LOT, it will be billed as a standard Trailer Storage rate of 31/ft x LOT.

If you are a multi-hull vessel, a houseboat or other non-standard vessel please contact us for availability and rates. (978) 283-0806
