Haulout Booking Information

The following guidelines will assist in making your haulout experience at Shelter Island Marina as smooth as possible:
• When phoning to book a haul out the marina staff will need as much information about your boat as possible.  Name,  Length, Type of Vessel, Insurance Verification and Owner name and phone number.

• Every boat that hauls into the yard gets a pressure wash. This is to contain the contaminants that come off the  hull while it is in the boatyard.

• Overnight moorage at the Travelift Slips must be pre-approved by the Office. Vessels impeding the lift area will be  subject to additional charges.

• Boats with “bat wings”, catamaran or boats of unusual design, will require more information prior to arrival.

• Owners should arrive at the marina at least ½ hour before their scheduled haul-out time to complete all paperwork  in the Office.

• No Cash = No Splash.  All boats require full payment before launching.
Shelter Island Marina and Boatyard hosts two of the largest Travelifts on the West Coast of British Columbia.

Our new 75 Ton Travelift is capable of hauling boats up to 80 feet in length and weighing up to 165,000 lbs.  This Travelift replaces our 70 Ton Travelift that was purchased in 2003.

The 220 Ton Travelift has been in service at Shelter Island since August of 2013. This lift has the capacity to lift vessels up to 150 feet in length with a 29 foot beam making it one of the largest on the West Coast.  This machine operates Monday thru Friday with the first lift beginning at 8:00 a.m. and the last lift at 3:00 p.m.

Both travelifts were purchased from Kendrick Equipment of Richmond, BC and the assembly and training are completed by Marine Travelift of Wisconsin where the machines are manufactured.

Vessels are pressure washed in our Environmental Water Treatment Pit which was constructed in 2008. This system contains the contaminants from the hull of the vessel which helps keep the boat yard environmentally friendly. The water is recycled and the system collects the contaminants into holding tanks through a drainage system which is then hauled away for proper disposal.
