The former FBM shipbuilding yard was acquired to become the base to launch the British America's Cup team GBR Challenge 2001 – 2003. This site has worked hard to become a thriving boat yard using a 60 tonne boat hoist to lift boat into the boat storage area and we have access to undercover facilities for some boats and equipment storage. The yard has several tenants working in the marine industry and a range of vacant buildings that are available for short term let. The Medina Yard has become a reliable choice for boat owners and businesses alike.
Since the launch of Medina Yard as the new boat storage facility for private owners on the River Medina, many enquires have been received and the yard is now busy all year round.
The Medina Yard is currently the only boat yard in Cowes that can offer undercover storage which is proving popular.
To capitalise on the available storage space, the team at the yard have designed, built and maintain a boat mover capable of moving vessels up to 25 tonnes, This allows us to get a bigger range of vessels under cover.
