Some Need-to-Knows

Harbour and Yard

Here are some things that you need to know about your boat and its relationship with the NSC Yard and Harbour. Things such as important dates, preparations for Launch or Haulout and where to store your stuff, how to book a crane.  Every year, there are many questions about how the Harbour and Yard operate. We’re always happy to answer them and welcome suggestions and comments.

The Yard and Harbour are set up each year based on NSC’s Harbour Policy and Mooring Allocation Policy, two documents that describe the “rules of the road” so to speak. Have a look at the Policy Documents on NSC’s website; you might be surprised to see what’s already there!

Buying Or Selling A Boat?

If you are buying a boat at NSC or planning to sell your boat to an NSC member, keep in mind that any slip associated with the vessel is not transferable. A more detailed description can be found in NSC’s Mooring Allocation Policy. See the page, New Boats and Boat Upgrades.
