Kingston Marine Boatyard occupies a large proportion of the site and is one of the biggest yards on the River Medina, providing services for around 150 yachts and motor vessels up to 40 tonnes. The team in the boatyard at Kingston are happy for you to leave the organisation of all your works to them, enable you to do your own work, or to engage a contractor yourself, flexibility is the key. They are happy to offer quotations for all your requirements including paint and Chandlery supply.
The Kingston Marine Services team, a familiar sight up and down the river, have both their working vessels based here and have storage and workshop facilities for engineering, welding and painting. The afloat team are the first choice for all local marine contracts.
The 10 acre site is also home to a variety of Onsite Businesses, many offering services to the boats in the yard with others involved in a wide variety of trades, including boat building and repairs, marine electronics and engineering, RIB building and repair, as well as yacht equipment storage and more.
Commercial operations also call Kingston Wharf their home, Isle of Wight Aggregates and Isle of Wight Fuels have wharves for the discharge of crushed aggregate products and petroleum fuels respectively. Fuel is distributed from the storage facility in Kingston Road and aggregates direct from Kingston Wharf.
We have room to grow at Kingston Wharf, with a brownfield site and room in the yard for more small units. We are always on the lookout for partners and tenants and look forward to taking the site forwards with more exciting developments in the future.
