Malahide Marina Boatyard, Boat Repair in North Dublin

28th June 2013

Malahide marina boatyard in North Dublin offers the only purpose-built waterfront covered boat repair facility on Ireland's East Coast.

The covered boat repair facility offers a complete range of maintenance, refurbishment and repair services, all conveniently available within the confines of Malahide Marina.

The 2,000 sq. ft. covered repair facility caters for jobs ranging from fitting bow-thrusters and stern thrusters, repairing hulls and keels, installing new engines, spray-painting, polishing and antifouling, to simple installations such as fitting VHF radios and aerials or new batteries, horns, anodes or rope-cutters. These services are used by several boat sales companies for the commissioning of new vessels.

The facility accommodates vessels of up to 55ft, and frequently caters for up to four boats at a time.

Not all work requires the vessel to locate within the Covered Boat Repair Facility.

In many cases the required jobs are accomplished without even lifting the boat ashore. Malahide Marina's customers enjoy these services locally, and vessels come from other locations to avail of this comprehensive service.
