At Darthaven we have a full range of boatyard services from lift to launch and everything in between. Our 35 tonne travel hoist operates at all states of tide so not restricting and delaying your lift or relaunch. A holding pontoon for boats up to 60 feet in length is available allowing the time you need to prepare for being lifted, making it as stress free as possible.

Darthaven offers storage ashore all year around. During the Winter months further space is created making for a safe and secure environment in all weathers. A hard standing surface gives a clean and enjoyable place to work with water and electricity available throughout the yard. All boats ashore for winter must be ready for relaunch by the 1st of March. Please contact the service office for availability and all enquiries. Click here for rates & charges
