Dry stack storage at Saxon Wharf – First-class service, unbeatable value

There’s great news for motor boat owners looking for excellent value dry stack berthing in a fantastic location – with a limited number of berths still available at Saxon Wharf Marina in Southampton for the coming season. A superb solution for motor boats up to 13m, boat owners enjoy numerous benefits from dry stack, including enhanced residual value and improved fuel efficiency, as well as access to Freedom Berthing – the most comprehensive berthing rewards package available in the marketplace.

The Dry Stack facility at Saxon Wharf offers a fantastic way to store RIBs and motorboats under 13m. The slick system offers unlimited launching on demand seven days a week, 365 days a year. Customers simply call ahead or turn up and have their boat placed in the water ready to go. When they don’t need their boat, it’s stored safely and securely out of the water. The facility enjoys a purpose-built hoist and class-leading stack facilities for 90 boats, as well as a highly trained and professional team who are experts in handling all boat manufacturer models.

Just some of the many benefits of dry stack berthing include:

  • Easy-to-access out-of-the-water storage for your motorboat
  • Unlimited launching on demand, seven days a week
  • No need for antifouling
  • Improved fuel economy
  • Reduced salt water deterioration
  • Lower maintenance costs
  • Enhanced residual value
  • Increased security and protection
  • Use of superb marina facilities and on-site services
  • An experienced, fully-trained team who know exactly how to handle your boat

In addition to first-class berthing at Saxon Wharf, berth holders also enjoy complimentary use of the exceptional on-site facilities at neighbouring marina, Shamrock Quay, which has undergone further refurbishments for the new season, including a £150,000 investment in its toilet and shower facility. Shamrock Quay has also welcomed a brand-new restaurant, Quay Fifteen, which offers a delicious menu and place to relax and unwind, and was recently voted the No.1 rated restaurant in Southampton, according to Trip Advisor.

Annual MDL berth holders also enjoy exclusive membership of Freedom Berthing, which not only entitles customers to a 12-month home for their boat and superb marina facilities and on-site services, but also receive a whole stack of benefits including complimentary visitor berthing and overnight stays at MDL’s entire network of marinas.

A perfect solution for both holidays and day trips, this means that you can take your boat either by road trailer or water to any one of our Freedom Berthing marinas, including 18 in the UK, 70 in France, 2 in Italy and 1 in Spain. This opens up endless possibilities, from using our marinas as a holiday base to explore further afield, cruising between marinas or simply nipping across to Ocean Village with friends for lunch. The many other benefits include fuel at cost, unlimited WiFi, and the most generous discount of any boatyard service provider.

MDL berth holder, Chris Trebble, commented: “I have been at Ocean Village and Shamrock Quay for about 7-8 years and have enjoyed the friendly and helpful attitude of the staff, also the flexibility of the Freedom Berthing.”

Saxon Wharf Marina boasts excellent links to the M27 and M3 motorways and the convenient location also gives direct access to The Solent – meaning boaters can enjoy even more time afloat.
