Dickerson Harbor Boatyard is a desirable winter home for any discriminating boat owner who is seeking the protection indoor boat storage affords. With inside yacht storage capacity of over 50 boats and acres of outside boat storage area, we are able to accommodate a multitude of new and returning clients each year. Dickerson Harbor is also a proven hurricane and storm safe harbor and each year we help our customers protect their yachts when the need arises.
60,000 ft sq. of Covered Storage in 5 Buildings, 3 of them Heated
Dickerson now has three heated storage buildings and two covered storage buildings covering a total area of over 60,000 ft sq.
We know it is the sun and rain which wears out hulls and decks the fastest. The resulting moisture which seeps into the systems and living areas aggravates efforts to keep fine yachts looking nice and running smoothly.
Covered storage and heated storage change the game and reduces long term depreciation. We know money spent on protected storage is a great investment and saves you money in the long run.
Each year we further develop those capabilities needed to meet the standards our customer’s boats represent. We service modern yacht engines, generators, water systems, air conditioners, etc. For example, we have on-staff Cat trained mechanics and knowledgeable personnel with over 100 years of accumulated experience in the servicing, operation, installation, maintenance, diagnostics, warranty administration and re-warranty procedures under Cat’s new programs. We can also revive old gelcoat by compounding and polishing, gelcoat repairs and Awlgrip paint application.
Can we haul your boat? We can handle a beam up to 21′. To the right you can see John measuring the draft on this boat — which measures in with a draft of 8’2″. Be sure to come in at high tide though!

Is your boat ready to sell?
Mechanical service, advanced fiberglass maintenance and top notch cosmetic work make the covered storage protections from sun and weather strong assets in achieving sales of boats offered by Oxford Yacht Agency. Recently a Grand Banks 46 owner from South Florida called asking about the market for his Grand Banks 46 Europa, a late model beauty seen in several Ft. Lauderdale boat shows. We proposed that he store the boat under cover upon arrival, consider good fiberglass polishing, some varnish and paint, engine details and periodic cleaning as time elapsed. This Grand Banks 46 Europa had some stiff competition in New England and Florida. The other Grand Banks Europa 46’s had this quality or that quality differently, some had dramatically less engine hours but none had the nearly perfect condition. Mostly they had bleached out fiberglass, flat varnish, as well as paint, caulk and deck defects. None were perfectly serviced and ready to go. Guess which boat was sold first?
