Where to store your boat during the winter months

Learn about the best option for storing your boat this Winter.

5th October 2017


With winter quickly approaching, it’s time to put the boat away until spring. One of the biggest decisions for boat owners in Ireland is where to store a boat during the winter months.

The best place for your boat to be during the winter is out of the water, under suitable cover and in a dry storage specifically for boats.

Read on to learn more about the most common ways to store your boat and the best option for your boat.

Storing your boat at home saves money. However, here are some points to consider if you decide to go this route:

• The boat is subject to hash Winter elements.

• Boats stored outside can become a target for vandals.

• A boat takes up space in your driveway. If space is limited this can cause a hindrance in your driveway when parking.

Benefits of a boat storage facility

• Your boat is protected from the elements.

• Easy Access (close to water), so when you’re ready to use your boat again, you won't have far to travel.

• Boat security and peace of mind

• Boats stored inside generally need less cleanup in the spring to restore that yacht-like appearance.
