Harry King & Sons Ltd is equipped to store and launch boats up to 12.5 tonnes and 37′ in length. Our winter storage charge is £26.10+VAT per foot. There are no hidden charges, and therefore our fees covers; collecting from the mooring, lift out of the water, pressure washing the hull, dismasting, setting down, either suppling cradles/boat supports or storing your cradle all year round, car parking, dinghy storage, touching up antifouling patches where cradle pads were, re-launching and placing onto your mooring. During the fitting out season you will always be able to park your car near your boat and in the sailing season the front yard is cleared for designated dinghy storage. The front yard is then also used to load and unload cars before parking in the top yard. There is an electricity and water supply to all of our boat storage yards, along with a customer toilet and shower.
Harry King, along with his sons Norman and Sam, built two boats for Arthur Ransome, the author of 'Swallows and Amazons', along with dozens of beautifully crafted yachts over a number of decades. Sam also built hundreds of clinker dinghies and we have continued to build them to the same design. Our experienced team is small and dedicated. Most of us sail on The Orwell and surrounding rivers and so understand the needs of our customers very well and go out of our way to fulfil them. Harry King Boatyard offers a reliable, honest, friendly service which is also good value for money.
