Where is the pumpout?
The pumpout is located at the North end of B Dock and access to the pumpout is obtained by contacting Pensacola Boat Supply.
Do you have security?
Pensacola Shipyard has 24hr video surveillance of the facility. In addition, we have a security guard that monitors the premises after hours and on the weekends. All of our wet slips are secured by a coded gate. During working hours the gates are open, and after hours the gates are secured. The codes are changed monthly and sent out on monthly billing and via e-mail.
Do you have fuel?
No, although, Pensacola Shipyard does allow permitted suppliers to fuel vessels along the seawall and there are two facilities within Bayou Chico that supply diesel and unleaded fuel.
What is included with the monthly slip fees?
Water, electricity, wifi, laundry facility, and a slip side dockbox.
Does the ramp close?
No the ramp is available 24-7. If the Pensacola Boat Supply is closed, you may use the convenient drop off container to pay launch fees. This is great for the boater that chooses to get the early start!
Trailer boat storage:
Are there utilities where the trailer will be parked?
Utilities are not available in the Trailer boat storage stalls. There are areas where the vessels can be towed to and rinsed after use and when necessary. In addition we have stalls with utilities available for a daily rental rate if necessary.
Do I have to remove my trailerable sailboat’s mast?
No, all of the utilities on the Shipyard have been placed underground so the rigging and mast on your sailboat can be left up thus making it quick and easy to go for that weekend sail!
If I want to use my boat over the weekend do I have to pull it out of the water at the end of the day and put it back in the following?
No, Pensacola Shipyard has set aside areas for trailer boats to tie up during the evening to keep from having to recover the vessel only to launch it again the following morning. The scheduling for overnight trailer boat dockage is scheduled and charged through Pensacola Boat Supply.
When can I work on my boat?
You have 24 hour access to the yards and the utilities (air, power, and water) are always available.
Can I live aboard while in the yard?
We strongly encourage people to stay at a local hotel, but if there is an unusual situation Pensacola Shipyard will answer the questions on a case by case basis.
How much notice is required to haul my boat?
Pensacola Shipyard schedules Haulouts, Launches, and all other services on the hour with morning appointments from 7am thru 10am, and afternoon appointments starting at 12pm with our last appointment at 3pm. 24 hours noticed is required for scheduling, however, it is strongly recommended that you contact our office as early as possible to ensure a specific appointment. We strongly recommend arriving 30 minutes before your appointment to take care of all the necessary paperwork. Due to our haulout schedule, vessels arriving after their scheduled appointment may be required to reschedule.
Can I pressure wash my own boat?
No, Pensacola Shipyard is designated a Clean Boatyard and due to this program has adopted a set of Best Management Practices that requires a closed-loop recycling system for pressure washers.
Do I have to disconnect my sailboat rigging to haulout?
In most cases No! Due to the size of our Marine Travelift most sailboats will not have to take down any rigging to haul. But, depending on size and configuration of the vessel, some will need to be hauled backwards!
Do you Haul/Launch on the weekends?
No. Our normal working hours are Monday thru Friday 7am to 11am and 12pm to 4pm. Emergency haulouts/after-hours haulouts are subject to availability and will be charged an additional fee.
Do you have a Hurricane Haulout Program?
Yes we do! Please contact the office for more information.
