Large boat haulout

If you have a sailboat, we can handle all of your maintenance needs from the top of her mast to the bottom of her keel.  Bring your boat to Gig Harbor Marina & Boatyard and we’ll have you out enjoying those summer breezes again soon.

We recently hauled out this 57-foot Swan sailboat, one of the larger boats we’ve hauled at 60,000 pounds and nine and a half feet of draft, and the marina’s Travelift can “easily handle that size,” says yard manager Mark Lindeman.  The lift can accommodate 100,000 pounds and 11 feet of draft.  “Even a boat this size doesn’t max out the capacity of Gig Harbor Marina & Boatyard,” Lindeman pointed out.

The graceful Swan 57, built in 1979, is from Gig Harbor and is a regular customer for maintenance at Gig Harbor Marina.  This time the skilled boatyard team will be doing propeller and shaft work, through-hull servicing and bottom painting.
