Welcome To Rudders Boatyard

Welcome to Rudders Boatyard

“One of the tidiest, picturesque & sheltered boatyards I have ever seen, anywhere!”

In a beautiful, quiet & picturesque countryside location, we can be found some six miles upstream on the Milford Haven Waterway in Burton, Pembrokeshire, South West Wales. “Little England as it is often called”.

The Coastline

The Haven itself has some 26 miles of navigable waters & is a great base for visiting local pubs (especially with pontoons!) and beaches!

Once outside the Haven we have a magnificent coastline with beautiful Islands teaming with wildlife & are just a short hop to the West Country or Ireland, etc.

Our Location

We are 3rd on the right off Church Road in Burton, less than a mile upstream of Neyland Marina/ Jolly Sailor pub & the (now toll free) Cleddeau Bridge which has a relatively safe 36 meters (118ft) height at high water & always deep water from the mouth of the estuary all the way to us.



Deepwater swinging moorings

We have moorings in place suitable for vessels up to 50ft


Storage ashore

We can store any vessel ashore from small tenders & trailer boats to 36ft yachts or motorboats – anything up to about 12 tons in total.


All tide launching & recovery

The water is easily accessible at all stages of the tide


Workshop fitting, repair & maintenance services

We can take on complete care of your yacht if you like. Anything like weekly or monthly on board
