Yacht Winterisation Services
Prepare your boat for winter
Boat Winterisation Services
Boat winterisation is essential to keeping your boat in good working order and making sure it is ready to go again come the spring. Harsh weather and inactivity can impact your boat’s condition, and without proper checks damage can occur.
Based on the River Hamble near Southampton, the engineers at Ancasta Yacht Services are perfectly located to winterise your boat anywhere in the Solent area.
Our boat winterisation packages typically include:
- Winterisation of your engine, generator, WC and batteries
- Thorough check of the alternator, starter motor, engine mounts, lubricants and underwater fittings.
- Outdrive service, cathodic protection and full gas system check where applicable.
- Rig checks are available by request.
We accommodate a vast array of boat models and sizes and can tailor a package to suit your requirements.
