Our Winter workshop

Our floating dock up above the locks

Winter is a very busy time for our staff, servicing, refurbishing and improving the fleet ready for the beginning of the new season in April.

Working on the boats outside is pretty much out of the question in the middle of a Great Glen winter, so we have built a floating covered dock with a big roaring heater in it above the locks at Laggan.  This structure will easily take our biggest cruisers, so staff can work on the boats whatever the weather outside.

The main Winter jobs are servicing  the engines, heaters and similar ancilliary equipment, servicing the safety gear, cleaning the upholstery and generally making sure the boats are in tip-top condition for the first charterers of the new season.
