Summer Storage at Sail Newport is offered to all actively used (see contract) sailboats for the term of May 1 to October 15, 2020. Sailboats must be kept on working trailers or dollies, and we reserve the right to move any vessel at any time, most often for facility maintenance purposes. Sail Newport has available, use of two single-point hoists (fees can be included in your summer storage, membership, or hoist-pack fees), which have capacities of two tons and three tons. We also have a gin pole available for public use. We are an owner-operator facility, so be sure to plan to have a capable crew with you for your launching, hauling and rigging needs.
North Dry-sail Area vs. South Dry-sail Area
Our North Dry-sail Area is the paved, painted lot closest to the Admiral’s Pier (our hoist pier). Our South Dry-sail Area is the gravel and clam-shell area directly behind Sail Newport’s Main Office. The South Yard will be organized by group to consolidate traffic to specific areas based on which nights each class’s series will sail. The North Dry-sail Area is reserved for one-design class boat owners who sail regularly in local season-long racing series. If you have any question as to whether you fall into this category, please call us at (401) 846-1983 before filling out a contract. Please be sure to fill out your contract correctly indicating which area you want to store in. Space is limited in both yards, so take care in completing your storage contract such that you are placed in your desired area.
Rates are based on length overall multiplied by max beam (width). The basic rate is $4.50 sq./ft. for summer, not including any hoist fees.
Membership is required to store a boat during the summer. If you are unsure of your member status, please email us, or call (401) 846-1983. If you are not a member, please visit our membership page.
