"As someone new to yacht ownership the staff at Trafalgar Wharf have been quite excellent in helping me overcome the many problems I have faced. I recommend them unreservedly."
Alan Behagg, 'Alberta Rose' - Legend 35
"We are the new owners of a 20 metre, 30 ton Dutch barge (SO99). Naturally when we were looking for a boat yard to use, we made many local comparisons on facilities, price and 'attitude' before deciding on Trafalgar Wharf. Over the years, in different yachts, we have hauled out in many yards in Europe and in the United States and have been surprised in places at varying levels of safety and service. At Trafalgar Wharf our barge was out of the ordinary but the haul out was carefully judged, quietly executed and above all safe. We felt she was in safe hands at all times. We are now into our refit and find everyone responsive and helpful and would certainly recommend Trafalgar Wharf to our friends and fellow yachties."
Mr & Mrs Yeomans, SO99
“Such a great place to keep the boat over the winter. As a relatively new boat owner, I am paranoid about other people touching my ‘baby’. My fear was totally unfounded when I witnessed 1st hand the precision and care taken over the lift-out and parking of my beloved Westerly Fulmar. Spacious yet secure and sheltered surroundings, not to mention the on-site cafe for those finger-thawing cups of drink and warm food. I will not hesitate to re-book for next winter."
