Cowes Harbour Services Boatyard


The Cowes Harbour Services Boatyard is one of the largest yards on the River Medina with extensive facilities accommodating up to 150 boats from the easily trailered to yachts and motor boats up to 40 tonnes. The Boatyard serves local river and harbour users, and is also popular with mainland boaters.

The Boatyard occupies around one-third of the Cowes Harbour Services 10-acre site at Kingston Wharf and comprises several large storage areas, waiting pontoons, a 6-metre beam hoist dock and a boat handler with capacity to 40 tonnes. The business also occupies a proportion of the shoreside workshops, shared with a number of small business tenants and our Commercial Marine Services team.

We offer a full range of boat maintenance services and have a number of preferred sub-contractors that can also be involved in the care of your boat. Alternatively, you are welcome to work on your own vessel or contract independent companies, subject to site conditions.
