Security during Servicing
Boat (and especially outboard engine) theft is now a major problem across the UK. To combat this menace, we always ensure that we have space for secure indoor overnight storage of your boat during servicing. Therefore please always book your boat in here - rather than just turn up unannounced. We typically need one to two weeks notice. However small outboard engines - ones you can carry by hand - are welcomed to be delivered here without prior notice, at any time we are open. For small engines being serviced the drop off and and collection times can suit your travel arrangements - so just come in whenever is convenient for you.
Pennine Marine at Skipton has a large and very secure external yard, which we only use during the daytime. We only use our own fully concreted boat hard-standing area, which is secure inside a palisade fence, to store our customer’s boats during the day.
Our customer's boats, ribs and outboard engines are always locked indoors at night, keeping them secure, dry and warm. All customers boats and engines are only stored indoors at night. The building is fully alarmed. Our engineering workshop and yard - and therefore your boat - is therefore extremely secure. The main building with your "valuables" in it is covered by a remotely monitored alarm system, automatically linked to a manned security centre and from there directly to the North Yorkshire Constabulary.
