MSO Marine: dry docking, wet docks, tidal grid and hard standing

Here at MSO Marine we have a variety of spaces that allow us to work on your boat. Read the specifications of the areas to see what space is best suited to your needs.

PLEASE NOTE docking at our yard requires a tidal height of 6.9m at London Bridge to dock a vessel.  Check out the PLA tides to find out when you could get into this dock. Because this height is only achieved during Springs on the Thames, your stay with MSO Marine is likely to be at least one tidal cycle (10/14 days).

Large Dry Dock

Our large covered dry dock is able to dock boats up to 40 m by 10m. It boats overhead lifting and a retractable canopy if your vessel has a high air draft. Having 9 Hydraulic trestles and a flat working area, this facility allows our team to complete your works at speed in a safe environment.

We recommend using this dock for surveys, Ultra High Pressure Water Blasting, plating and welding works to the hull and painting.

Large Dry Dock can accommodate vessels 40m x 10m

Small Dry Dock

Our small dry dock is able to dock boats up to 20 m by 5m.

We recommend using this dock for surveys, Ultra High Pressure Water Blasting, plating and welding works to the hull and painting of smaller vessels and narrow boats.

Tidal Grid

The tidal grid can take vessels up to 30m x 6m.

This grid floods each tide and therefore is recommended for surveys where no further works are expected and quick/emergency repairs to hull damage.  

tidal grid can accommodate vessels up to 30m x 6m

Hard Standing

Our hardstanding is for vessels that we can safely crane out. Our current crane can  lift 20 Tonnes. Once out, most works can be completed on hard standing.

Wet Dock

Our wet docks are available for vessels up to 25m. These docks are ideal for interior works or deck works. Hull works can not be undertaken in the wet docks.
