There has been a boatyard on the tidal reaches of the Fal Estuary at Mylor Bridge, Cornwall, for generations

Mylor Creek Boatyard offers a wide range of facilities including space ashore for over 100 vessels, lifting and launching facilities, beach berthing, a spacious slipway, a 75 tonne slipway winch and cradle, an 80ft mobile dry dock, and swinging moorings.

Lay-up ashore

Mylor Creek Boatyard has space ashore for more than 100 vessels of various shapes and sizes. No matter what type of boat you own we’ll do everything we can to accommodate your needs.

All vessels are able to take advantage of the many water and electrical points positioned around the yard as well as toilet facilities.


With our versatile boat hoist, we are able to launch and haul out boats of up to 50 feet and 20 tonnes.

Slipway with 75 tonne winch and cradle

If you do not require a full undercover facility, Mylor Creek Boatyard has a slipway cradle that is capable of hauling out vessels of up to 80 feet in length, 7 feet and 6 inches in draft and up to 75 tonnes in weight with its substantial winch.

This facility is ideal for small barges, motor fishing vessels, small passenger ferries, some sailing yachts and many more. Please feel free to talk to us about your needs.

Mobile dry dock

Constructed from a 100ft dumb barge, our mobile dry dock is tremendously flexible and can accommodate vessels of up to 80 feet long. It can be towed to and from deep water enabling substantial projects to be undertaken.

Once the vessel is inside, the dry dock is covered with a shrink wrap cover and with power, lighting and heating available, a wide variety of work can then be carried out including painting and respraying, shot blasting and all manner of refit work.

Collection and delivery

Our yacht collection and delivery service is ideal for owners who are too busy to maintain their boats or who live some distance away and are not able to sail them as regularly as they would like.
With a sturdy work-boat, the boatyard team is well-practised in collecting boats and bringing them safely and efficiently to their maintenance berths at the boatyard. Using Mylor Creek Boatyard to collect your boat gives you the peace of mind that your vessel is in the best possible hands.

Summer dry sail

You can safely store your boat in our yard and just call us in advance of when you would like to be out on the water. We will launch your boat and tow it to your chosen marina or mooring in time for your arrival date. We will then collect it on your departure, haul it out, wash it off and store it until your next visit. What could be simpler?

Design office

Cockwells has an experienced in-house design office who pride themselves on having resolved every design challenge that they have ever encountered with ingenuity and flair. In 2018, we received a grant from the BIG2 Project funded from the ERDF as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020 which partly funded a server upgrade for the design office as well as the 3D solid modelling CAD software Solidworks and as a result we have been able to employ an additional member of staff to support the design office.
