Slip Hire, Washdown and Tender Storage


PCSC Slip Hire, Washdown Facilities and Tender Storage

Slipway facilities are limited to Senior and Family category financial Members of the Club.

The club has 2 slipways capable of a maximum 15 metres in length beam and 13 tonnes gross weight. A pressure washer is available for hire for washing down of boats.

People who wish to join the club are advised that if their boat measures more than 15 metres or 13 tonnes, it will not be slipped at our facilities. There are other facilities nearby which are better equipped to slip these larger vessels.

The limits of 15 metres and 13 tonnes are arbitrary, however, there is general agreement that larger boats incur greater wear and tear on our ageing slipways. 

Please click here to download a slip agreement and special conditions form, which has to be signed before the slipway is occupied.

PCSC has recently completed its long term plan of upgrading our slipway so that it does not discharge toxic waste into the conservation area of the Port Cygnet waterway.

*Note: A Environmental Levy of $50 per vessel per slip is charged to cover the maintenance of our Slipway Environmental Management System.
