Pay less, but get more

Avoid the often-astronomical cost of sheltered moorings, by opting for tidal moorings at Rice & Cole instead.

Here, you’ll find everything you’d expect from a first-class boatyard, whilst also enjoying the wonderful convenience of having comfortable accommodation ashore.

For further information about any of our boatyard services, or to discuss your refit or repair project in more detail, please don’t hesitate to contact us – we’d love to hear from you!
