“Brilliant place for a haul out and pressure wash or just for using their slipway. Staff in the office and on the yard are friendly and professional. Friends kept their boat there and have used it frequently and it’s just so easy, a simple phone call and it’s in the water ready to go!”

Paul Tomline

“The BEST location for entering the River Dart, incredible, hard-working team and simply excellent facilities, can’t recommend highly enough : )”

James K

“Superb location on a beautiful stretch of the River Dart. A secure yard and a very impressive dry stack facility- staff are friendly and helpful, couldn’t recommend more highly! 10/10!”

Keith Hutchison

“The dry stack facilities are first class. The staff are really helpful and we loved being able to phone up in advance, turn up and the boat was there waiting for us on the pontoon ready for another fantastic day on the Dart. Totally hassle free boating – perfect!”

Gordon Hallett

“I really should not say this BUT a fantastic quiet part of our lovely river Dart.
Visited many Estuaries, harbours etc and this place is certainly one of the very best.”

James Frost

‘We have stored our RIB in the covered dry stack at Blackness for 4 years – the service has been superb – everyone is friendly, and happy to help novices like ourselves. The engineering side is also seamless – a quick email sorts pretty much everything. On top of that, it is a simply stunning location and utterly unique for a “marina”.’

Joshua Stewart

‘We have been using Blackness Marine facilities for several years to store and launch our RIB. The support we have had has been brilliant from all the staff. Really useful slipway on the Dart.’


“I have wintered my sailing boat at Blackness Marine for several years. The service is efficient and friendly. Repairs are done on schedule and the prices are competitive. I especially like the fact that it’s a family-run operation that has grown rapidly but still maintains the personal touch.“
