Travel Lift Details

Our Boat Yard Travel lift prices vary based upon the length of the boat. If you don't have an Adobe Reader, download a free Acrobat reader at to view the price list above.

We have round trip haul out lift rates, trailer to yard lift rates, water to trailer haul out lift rates, and a quick lift rate. In addition, storage rates apply to indoor and outdoor storage on a per day basis. For extended periods of storage exceeding 30 days, storage, lift and power wash charges are due and payable monthly, with the balance of storage payable prior to launching of the vessel.

For use in the repair or maintenance of the boat, our travel lift can be used on an hourly basis. Whether it is to lift an engine, or to move keel blocks, we are happy to schedule it at the rates below.

Travelift Hourly Rate:$ 210.00
After Hours:$ 420.00
Re-blocking (moving keel blocks):$ 160.00
Stand change:$ 50.00
Forklift minimum charge:$ 70.00/hour

Booking Lifts/Launch:

Boat Yard Rules and Deposit: Tenants, contractors and private owners must read and sign the boat yard rules. There is a $100 deposit to reserve the services of the boatyard, travelift, and crew in a specific time slot. If you cancel without notice less than 24 hours from the scheduled time, the deposit will not be refunded.

Clean up fee: $70.00 minimum charge if space is not clean at time of launch.

Electricity and water: Price included in daily storage rate.

Environmental fee: $1.00/per foot length overall.

Fuel Disposal: Contaminated fuel must be removed at boat owner’s expense as Granville Island Boat Yard is not equipped for removal of fuel.

Holding Bays: First four hours are free. After four hours, the cost will be $50.00 per day. No boats over 32 ft. will be allowed in the holding bays at any time. This is to allow access to the lift bay for the larger vessels.

Power wash:
$2.90 per linear foot of boat
$3.90 + per linear foot for heavy growth
i.e. if staff has to scrape mussels or barnacles.
