Drystack Marina Boat Storage

  Ripley Light Marina Dry Stack

Ripley Light Marina Drystack is located just across the Ashley River from Downtown Charleston and has been in operation since 1988. The marina is situated on Hwy 61, adjacent to the California Dreaming restaurant and just blocks from the James Island Connector.

Ripley Light Marina Drystack was completely rebuilt in 2010 to accommodate the needs of current and future boaters. The Drystack is bigger and better, with 220 slips which accommodate boats up to forty (40') feet. Slip heights are up to fourteen (14') feet which allow for T-tops in all slips.

The rebuild has dramatically changed the marina. While we have been storing boats for over 20 years at this prime location and have traditionally stayed 100% full, our slip sizes and slip heights were very limited. The new facility helps us better serve our current clients, while also opening more space for the pent-up demand which has always existed from those with larger boats.

Ripley Drystack has a state-of-the-art Wiggins forklift which can handle boats up to 20,000 lbs. All docks are constructed of Ipe wood, including the fuel dock. There is also a dock office with restrooms and showers.

We offer what can best be described as "valet parking for your boat". We believe we have the best staff in the business and strive to keep our customers happy. Our job is to make the boating experience better for the boat owner who would otherwise have to trailer his boat and wait in line at public ramps. We offer full service, meaning customers can call ahead and have their vessels placed in the water, washed down, batteries checked, fueled, and ready to go with ice in the cooler. When finished boating, a customer need only leave his or her boat at the dock. Our staff will then wash it down again, flush the engine, and return the boat to its dry storage slip. Bottomline, our goal is to take the hassle out of boating so our customers will use and enjoy their boats more.
