Use a slip cradle instead of a boat trailer

Why you don't need a boat trailer

Save time and money
If you rent a mobile slip cradle you can save money on buying or hiring a boat trailer in Sydney. You can avoid the cost, risk or time that you will lose when you try to move your boat yourself. If you have a large boat you can contract us to pick up your boat and put it onto one of our mobile boat slip cradles, you can save time, money and stress because we do all the work for you. Our boat transport service is door to door meaning we’ll meet you either at the boat ramp, marina or your house to pick up your boat and move it where you need it.

Special boat towing equipment
Better yet, unlike a traditional boat trailer, we have specifically designed our cradles so you can work on your boat while it is on our cradle. This makes it easy to do things like like anti-fouling. You could even have your boat moved between multiple locations while it is out of the water which makes a mobile cradle a perfect alternative to buying or boat trailer hire.

  • A mobile slip cradle is shorter than a typical trailer.
  • The height of a mobile slip cradle is lower than a boat trailer.
  • We do everything for you when hiring our mobile slip cradle.

Boat servicing or restoration on a cradle

Here is an example of using a mobile slip cradle instead of a boat trailer.  This Monterey 270 Cruiser Boat was restored by Adam Hayter Shipwrights in Gosford. We picked up the boat from the local ramp, transported it to Adam’s shipyard and returned it to the water a few weeks later. As you can see in the images the Monterey has great access to the hull area making it easy for restorations or other maintenance work to be done. 

This is one example, but Slip Away You could even have your boat moved to different places to then have the engine worked on, cabin etc.

"Amazing!!!! After 4 long months of restoring my boat if excitement and nerves weren't enough I discovered a leak when she went in the water. My heart sank "what to do"

Peter was amazing quickly helped put her back on the trailer (not an easy feat in itself) not only did he hang around while I tried to find the leak he was right there helping all the way.

Could have been such a different story he was patient, understanding and helpful. Would not use anyone else would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone."
