Application for NYC Boat Storage 2022/2023 Season

Current Members of NYC can use this form to apply for Boat Storage at the club. Space is obviously at a premium on the waterfront and as a club we are trying to ensure that every bit of space is directly contributing to maximising activity on the water! Boat Storage will be allocated by NYC with this consideration in mind.

So, please consider carefully how much you are likely to use your boat/equipment during the season before applying.

If you are just looking for storage there are many other options including Boat Storage Nelson who have offered a 10% discount to NYC members.

We are keen to see the boats at the club on the water as often as possible! 🙂

A Boat Storage Rental Agreement is from 1 September – 31 August each year and must be renewed annually by completing this Boat Storage Application by 15th August each year. Importantly, that does mean you need to complete the form each year and failure to do so could mean we are unable to provide you with boat storage.
