Winter Storage

Let SWS Boatworks look after your boat this winter. Our highly-trained technicians can winterize and safely store your boat in your boathouse or at our secure, monitored facilities.

Choose between shrink wrap or indoor non-heated storage. All of our packages include full winterization services and then, when it’s time to launch your boat in the spring, we’ll summerize it and make sure everything is running smoothly.
