Dell Quay Sailing Club Lift-Out / Lift-In Dates


Terms and Conditions of Lifting In & Out with Dell Quay Sailing Club

  • Move or have your boat moved over to the hard/quay wall by the last high water before the lift out commences.
  • Lower and remove the mast from the boat for the duration of lifts.
  • Ensure your boat is appropriately insured for lifting by crane (the crane insurance doesn’t cover the load ie your boat).
  • Ensure your boat is appropriately insured for storage ashore whilst on the quay.
  • To pay the fees due on the day of Lift Out.


The costs of Lift-out and Lift-in are made up of 2 components. The fee for storage on the quay, and the cost of the crane for the 2 lifts i.e. Out onto the quay and back In to the water and is payable on Lift-Out day.

The storage Fee is fixed each year, and includes electricity during the storage period.

The cost of the crane for the 2 lifts is calculated by dividing the cost of hiring the crane and any insurances divided by the number of boats that are being lifted.


All those on the list should recieve an email informing them of the finalised fee for Storage + the 2 Lifts.


  • Storage on the Quay (2022/23 rates tbc)
  • Crane - costs available when they are known, you will be advised by email once the number of boats sharing the crane hire cost's are known.
