Welcome to Southampton Dry Stack

Make memories on the water, we take care of everything else

Dry stack is the ideal boat storage method for those who want to make the most of their leisure time and enjoyment of boating.

If you own a motorboat, rib or sports boat this is the perfect solution to reduce costs, maintenance and hassle. The ultimate protection for your investment, leaving you to simply enjoy making memories on the water.

Southampton Dry Stack offers a unique, dedicated service with both fully undercover and outside dry stack packages. With two state of the art specialist marine forklifts ensuring that your boat is ready for you when you want it and safe and cared for when you don’t.


Complete care for your boat

Simply phone us 1 hour before you would like to use your boat and we will have it prepared for sea and ready on the pontoon for your arrival.

We take care of everything…covers, bungs, drainage tubes, hull inspections and much more. We also cold flush outboard engines if they have the facility to do so. If they don’t then do not worry we can simply put you onto an easy access service rack where you can flush your engine inboard or outboard with ease should you wish to.

After a perfect day out on the water, simply tie up on our long pontoon and leave everything to us. Or if you prefer we can put you on a service rack for you to complete any tasks that you wish, the choice is always yours.

Weather Protection

Our undercover dry stack packages offer full protection from gel coat destroying UV and the elements. Outdoor dry stack provides peace of mind that your boat is safe and sound and not subject to the worries of a boat living in the water

Performance & Economy

Your boat's hull is pressure washed after every trip meaning no growth or barnacles saving you on fuel and antifouling costs

Easy Maintenance

Your boat lives out of the water and so jobs of any type are easy to complete and expensive lifting fees avoided. Our service racks are fully supplied with water and electricity making completing any tasks on your boat simple

More Time

At Southampton Dry Stack your time is spent on the water enjoying yourself where it should be. When you return, simply tie up alongside the pontoon and we take care of all of the rest…it's what we love and what we do!

More Savings

It is an accepted fact that a dry stacked boat depreciates far less than a boat kept in a marina. Many insurance companies also offer discount to dry stack customers as they recognise the benefits, lower risks and heightened security


It is important to look after our beautiful natural surroundings. A dry stacked boat has no requirement for toxic antifouls and your cleaner hull reduces fuel burn. We drain your boat after every use meaning far less oily water in your bilges


Tailored packages to suit your requirements. Annual, seasonal (winter or summer), six-monthly, monthly and weekly packages available. We can even accommodate one off launches and lifts to both private owners and trade. All of your needs can be taken care of at Southampton Dry Stack


The whole site including our waterfront car park is covered by a state of the art CCTV system that is monitored 24 hours a day

Additional Services

Used boats located across out sites and available to view at your conveience by appointment.

Stingher Ribs

Stingher Ribs are conveniently based in the south coast’s boating capital of Southampton and home of the Southampton Boat show.

Edward Pedley of MRL first started importing Stingher Ribs into the UK from Italy in 2004. These are built and designed by Giuseppe Risolo with his son Andrea and they have been building Ribs since 1987. They are always striving to improve their Ribs and it shows with the strength and finish that they achieve.

In 2006 MRL moved to Southampton Dry Stack, which is the UK’s largest Dry Stack, with undercover storage, and direct frontage onto the River Itchen.

During that time MRL and Southampton Dry Stack have forged a close and trusted relationship, and in late 2020 both Edward Pedley of MRL and Bill Knight of Southampton Dry Stack decided to form a partnership selling the World renowned Stingher Ribs and together taking it on to new heights.

New additional sales office in Salcombe in association with Fine & Classic.
