Swanage Boat Park

Peveril Boat Park - Request for Expressions of Interest

The new RNLI boathouse has now been completed, and works are being undertaken to bring the Boat Park up to a suitable standard for boat storage. If you would like to have your name added to the mailing list to receive early notice of the reopening of the Boat Park, please complete and submit the ‘Expression of Interest’ form below.

For updates regarding the Boat Park, please visit this webpage, and the Swanage Tourist Information Centre Facebook page, regularly for updates. We look forward to hearing from you.

Please note the following:

  • All prospective customers should complete the online form below as this will ensure that your request will be formally lodged/acknowledged

  • We have written to existing customers who responded to our 'expression of interest' request in October 2016 – the letter or email you will receive over the New Year period will explain that you will receive first refusal for storage. This only accounts for about 50% of the storage capacity available

  • We will contact you to advise if you have been successful in securing a provisional space and request an appropriate payment. Please do not send any payments in before you receive this request

  • Those that have not been successful will be informed that they will be added to a waiting list and be advised annually by email if they wish to remain on this list

Boat Park

Swanage Town Council Boat Park is situated off Peveril Point Road. Turn left off Seymer Road and carry on through Broad Road Car Park. Click on the link for a map of the area.

Bookings to launch (or store, when the boat park re-opens in 2017) your boat at the boat park can be made by contacting the Tourist Information Centre on 01929 422885. Launch and storage fees.

All users of the boat park and slipway must be aware of the boat park regulations. Please take the time to review these. Thank you.



Situated on the foreshore you will find Swanage District Angling Club and also the boat house for Swanage Lifeboat. Both inshore and off shore boats are housed here. For information on the lifeboat, crew and latest news, please visit their website on www.swanagelifeboat.org.uk .


Fishermen’s Huts

Swanage Town Council’s Fisherman’s Huts are also situated on the foreshore. There are 19 huts that local fishermen can rent from the Town Council, enabling them to have ample storage for nets and equipment whilst having easy access to the sea.

The huts are numbered from 1 – 20, missing out No. 13 as this is considered unlucky for fishermen! There is currently a waiting list for these huts, if you are a registered fisherman and are interested in going on the list, please contact the Town Hall on 01929 423636 or e-mail admin@swanage.gov.uk.
