Park & Launch 2018

It is that time of year again when people start to think about putting their boats to bed for the winter period again, but no matter the 2018 season is just around the corner. If you are thinking of buying a boat over the winter months and need some top quality Park & Launch in Abersoch then send us an email to

We have spent a lot of time over the last couple of years continuing to develop this side of our business to accomodate our customers both old and new.

Our emphasis is to get you on and off the water as quickly as possible and with a friendly and personal service so you can enjoy exploring the miles of spectacular coastline that we have.

Some of the local waters

We have a reliable fleet of Muir Hill tractors and top notch friendly drivers which we use for launching and recovery which are maintained to the highest standard (drivers included!)

Once you are ready to be launched we aim to have you in the water as quickly as possible so you can enjoy more time on the water.

When you are ready to come off the water at the end of the day, give the office a call and our expert drivers will recover you safely and quickly, meaning you can be in the queue for Manana or in Zinc with an apres boating pint without rushing around.

The 2018 season will be our 15th since we took over and since then we have nearly doubled the length of the boating season from being a four month affair to being nearly eight months of possible boating time. This year we will run from late March through until mid October. This means that if you are able to you could have 200 (ish) days on the water, which I'm sure you all would if you could!

We have a few spaces available for the 2018 season, both for park & launch and TBM, so for all of you guys who have boats in Pwllheli and do your boating in Abersoch, give us a call and see what we can do for you.

We know we can save you an hour round trip in the car and probably £30 worth of fuel each time you go out!

Even though on the face of it we might be more expensive we will almost certainly save you money over the course of a season and we'll almost guarantee you'll have a happier and hassle free season!

For more details on Park & Launch please give Tim a call on 01758 713900 or drop him an email

Busy busy busy, we're still here getting on with it, been a bit busy to do any updates on the website recently. Some seriuosly good boating weather over the last 2 weeks, today is flat but it might rain....

9th May 2018

Well that was a blast! Banky was a great success, Saturday never really came good but Sunday and Monday were classic Abersoch boating days. Weather is back to normal now with some showers and general greyness the order of the day.

1st May 2018

Bank Holiday weekend incoming and it looks like there might be some great prospects for boating over the three day weekend. If you have asked for your boat to be ready, then it is ready to go when you're ready. See you at the weekend!

18th April 2018

Heatwave!....nope, not here. Apparently it will get better as the day goes on but currently it is still windy, grey and a little bit showery. As for the heat....well I'm not sure we'll see that at all, we might get to the high teens but I'd be surprised if we hit the 20's. Still, it looks like Friday and Saturday could be boating days, so get down here and get on with it!

9th April 2018

Great day yesterday, some people even went boating, they came back smiling. You could do the same again today, it's lovely now the sun has come out.

7th April 2018

No boating today, it is a little bit damp, however tomorrow, Sunday, looks like an altogether better day. Boating? well you could if you were here!

4th April 2018

Suns out, water is flat enough, time to go boating if you are here but get down early as the weather looks like it might go off this afternoon.

3rd April 2018

So we are back in the world of websites once more and will hopefully be able to keep you all a little more up to date with what we are getting up to here at the yard. Nothing groundbreaking for 2018, the yard is still the same, the staff are still the same, it's another fun year at the if only the weather would play ball and it would stop raining.
