Designed for convenience, value and peace of mind, Drystack membership is the premier boating solution, eliminating the fuss factor from your days on the water! There are many benefits to our premier package: as well as safe and secure residency of your boat in our purpose built Drystack hangar, you will receive unlimited launches and recoveries throughout the season, undertaken by our professional team using our launching equipment. Upon recovery, your boat will be given a fresh water wash off and then be returned to its dry berth (*). Battery charging is also available when requested, at no extra cost for Drystack members. This all gives you the freedom to explore the wonderful River Dart and splendid South Devon coastline and beaches with ease from our stunning location on the River Dart near Dittisham. To book in a launch we need just three hours’ notice, so you can simply arrive and head straight out on the water. Upon return, give the Drystack team a call and we manage the recovery, as described above, so your boat is safely stored ready for the next launch. Drystack members are issued with a security access card for the boatyard and one parking space is also included with your package.By providing engineering onsite, and some recommended contractors for maintenance we can ensure that you have access to everything you may need to stay afloat through the season. Our comprehensive range of services includes engine servicing, fault-finding, re-conditioning, polishing, valeting, and installation of navigation equipment.
