Marine Surveyors - Weymouth, Dorset
Weymouth is a busy port on the south coast of England offering much more than just a UK stopover port for channel sailing. Weymouth offers a safe haven from the predominantly south westerly winds and enjoys one of the lowest tidal ranges in the UK, allowing for safe and easy access at all states of the tide.

Weymouth situated on a sheltered bay at the mouth of the River Wey on the English Channel coast.

Weymouth marina has 300 berths including visitors’ berths, and is accessible at all states of the tide, although it is beyond the lifting bridge in Weymouth town. There is also an adjacent council-run marina, but this has no visitors berths or facilities. Yachts based in Weymouth usually use Portland for lift-outs or boatyard work.

Marine Surveyors - Portland, Dorset
A brand new marina has now opened in Portland with extensive facilities giving 600 annual berths, plus 120 visitor berths, which are accessible at all states of the tide. This new facility in Portland has full cranage facilities for boats up to 320 tonnes. A boatyard & extensive storage ashore are also available which are ideally suited to anyone commissioning a marine survey around the Portland area. Clarkes Boatyard at Castletown can also arrange lift-outs and carry out repairs and refits. Marine Techniques will be happy to assist in arranging cranage and storage for any boat requiring a marine survey around the Portland area.
