Why should you winterise your boat?

Winterising your boat is crucial to protect it form the harsh conditions of winter which can prevent unwanted damage and corrosion. If you’re not using your boat over winter, you will need to protect your engine from the elements. Engines are designed to be used, it’s not good for them to sit idle and they need to be prepared effectively to withstand long periods of time sitting in cold, damp engine rooms. Preventative maintenance by our manufacturer trained engineers such as servicing, and engine checks can keep your engine in the best shape and maintain warranties.

When should you winterise your boat?

Before the temperature starts to drop and while the boat is still in the water. This will give you and your engineer plenty of time to follow the basic steps and check for and repair any damage that may have been caused over the Spring and Summer months.
