The Rolls Royce Ship Lift platform, which is 184 ft by 45 ft, has a long history at the site, and had been originally used by VT to work on Royal Navy vessels. Trafalgar Wharf Shipyard is a customer focused site where you can control who completes the work on your vessel. It is a unique facility allowing fast docking with easy access. The ship lift is rated to 877 ton and is effectively a mechanical dry-dock, hoisting large vessels out of the water for repair, repainting and maintenance.

The ship cradles can move vessels of around 60 metres in length overall and up to 877 tons using the railed system. The rail system within the shipyard is movable hence allows for the traversing and dry docking of multiple vessels. The external hard-standing is approx. 80m x 50m and provides a solid and level working area with full access around vessels for cleaning down in readiness for painting.

As well as recent site wide infrastructure improvements, the ship lift has been fully refurbished, tested and certified. Ideally located to support vessels operating in the Solent and beyond, our Shipyard services a variety customers operating in the commercial, defence and superyacht sectors. Project offices, equipment storage and welfare facilities are available to hire for the duration of your project.
