Dock turnarounds occur on a Saturday morning. Please get in touch if you need to arrange a different day for turnaround and we will do our best to accommodate.
Normally if you are waiting to go on dock, your boat will be moored on the holding mooring below the railway viaduct. Once the dock is nearly full, the boats waiting to go onto dock will head up Hunt's Lock and bear left onto the backwater towards the dock. Boats will come off the dock on a Saturday morning unless otherwise agreed beforehand.
It is entirely up to you. You are not required to be at the dockings, as long as you give permission for the staff to move your boat on and off dock then we can complete the procedure for you. There is a holding mooring at the yard so we would ask you to leave your boat there and our team can complete the rest of the process.
Short of time?
We even offer a Door-to-Door service; where we will collect your boat from its home mooring, put it on drydock, pressure wash it off and complete the hull blacking in your choice of paints before delivery it back to your mooring. Get in touch to find out more.

You are more than welcome to work on the boat yourself, but if you'd rather us do the work please take a look at our Services page for more details. Any external contractors must be approved by us prior to your docking period and they will be subject to a standard commission fee.
We have several lengths of moorings available for anyone awaiting the drydock. Please do let us know if you plan to arrive early. We would recommend booking to come down the Anderton Boat Lift to ensure you arrive at Northwich Drydock Co. on time for your docking.
