Cost savings of indoor boat storage

Completely dry indoor boat storage

By definition, an indoor Drystack is totally clean and dry. Whereas an external boat rack means your boat is still exposed to the ravages of the elements.

  • fully undercover, dry, weatherproof storage for your RIB or motorboat
  • your boat is protected from UV degradation and pollution
  • no need to fit awkward or wet covers

Less maintenance and extra savings for you

  • no antifoul – saving you money and preserving the environment
  • reduced annual maintenance – saves time and costs
  • free from barnacles and weed growth means more efficient fuel consumption

A clean smooth hull means a smoother ride, plus significantly improved boat performance and overall fuel economy.

A clean boat free from damage

  • find your boat as you left it
  • no wear and tear from bumps in a marina
  • maintains excellent condition 

Reducing depreciation gives you a better resale value when you come to sell or exchange it.

Kinder for the environment

We love using our oceans, and we all want to protect them. Using Trafalgar Drystack means your boat is:

  • less prone to accumulating oily water in the bilges
  • less chance of any oil or fuel leaks into the harbour
  • not polluting the marine environment with toxic anti-fouling

So, all round, it is a kinder solution for marine life.
