Harbour and Yard

Sponsored and maintained by the NSC Harbour Committee and the Harbourmaster:
“Getting your Boats in and out of the water since 1979”

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.  Every year, a lot of questions are asked 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!

Up to Date Information

Members may book a crane on-line.

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.
